FW800 boot only OS X Macs include Classic 9 but will not boot 9 
natively. Most 9 apps run in Classic perfectly. You will still have to 
pay a little more to get the FW800 models. But you could easily add a 
FW 800 PCI card to the cheap dual 1.25 MDD @ $1599 to have that 
capability. That is the best deal. A FW 800 PCI card is going to cost 
you less than $50.
