We looked at building some very dense clusters using the G4s. The
floating point performance is great (15Gflops peak) as well as the raw
performance vs. power consumption (21watts at 1GHz). The main drawbacks are
price of the CPUs (though the new 7455s are only $125/10k for the 800MHz
versions), lack of support from Motorola and lack of any decent
clustering software such as Scyld.
