Finally, if you want to get really retro, there are apps written back when Macs used the Motorola series of processors, before even the PowerPC chips. These models ran System 7 and earlier. Modern Macs have so much more computing power than these that you can run a faithful emulation of System 7 using JavaScript in your web browser. Think of this as a more convenient way to access the software on an old Mac you already own, rather than a way of getting a whole extra virtual computer.

How to run old software and games on your Mac

Jun 9, AM in response to adamyala In response to adamyala Since you're in a university setting, it seems that there should be at least a few other Mac users around there that you might know. Seems like some of them might have an old Tiger retail disk, of course one that they are no longer using since they've subsequently upgraded to Leopard or Snow Leopard, and you could perhaps snap one up for a pittance under those circumstances and at least get one of your G4s up and running on Tiger.

I know Tiger will run well on those machines. Not sure if that will fit the bill for the work you need to do on the iPhone app development or not though. Regards, Steve M.
