I would be interested in a 32-bit multi-core PPC machine that is "desktop-ish" and can run Debian powerpc (i.e. not powerpcspe). Does anyone happen to know any machines that fit these requirements? The only thing I could find were old Macs. From what I could gather from reading this list, it seems that there a quite a few problems with those. Also, I'd prefer something newer, if possible.

Kind regards,
