Hello everybody!!

Lately, many people have made entire threads devoted to PowerBooks, iMacs and Mac Minis so I'm going to dedicate one to the lonely stepchild of the Apple family: the eMac. It's a great computer, it's just it doesn't look "Cool" or "Sexy" when compared to the other models; here's mine. :)

yeah I kinda agree, it is getting a little obsured. I mean as much as we all love our macs they are mass produced, one iMac looks about the same as any other iMac. Seeing one thread for general mac setups is kinda cool but breaking it down by model seems a tad silly.

I'm just waiting for the "post your shuffle set up!" thread to appear :rolleyes:

This is the Pictures forum. What do you thinks it's for? It's nice to be able to look at specific types of setups.

And no, I'm not just picking on eMacs, I think the same way about the powerbook, mini, and imac threads

Well since they had Mini, iMac and PB threads I thought one should be dedicated to the eMac.

Would you mind posting a link to the wallpaper you're using for your desktop? That looks really cool and I'd like to try it out. :p

That's the government district of Tokyo yes, Shibuya or Shinjuku? I think the big building in front is the the government offices and the one behind with the black spine behind is the (Mitsucoshi?) building.

Hello!! This is one of my favorite eMac setups becuase it's on the stand and has a nice desk to match. I'm sorry to hear about the PowerMac? Whats wrong with it?

Hello everyone!! Today was my birthday so my parents got me a 512MB iPod Shuffle from Apple Store. Also, I had some extra money left over so I ordered a piece of 256MB RAM from Crucial for a total of 512MB!! I can't wait to get both!! My eMac will fly now!!

There's an old G4/450 hiding under the desk.

The good news: the displays are now much more closely calibrated.

The bad news: I can barely see either under the weight of coffee mugs, orange peel, camera accessories and bills...

Awesome. A friend of mine just gave me one of the 17" CRT Graphite Studio Displays because the screen was pretty borked. I brought it to a local Mac Repair place to get them to degauss it for me. It'll cost $20, but if I have to pay $20 to get such an awesome display so be it. :)

Now whether I'll give it for my mother to use with a Mac Mini she'll eventualy get, use it with my Dreamcast, or use it as a extended eMac display, I don't know yet.

If you have a setup should you post it in the "name of computer" thread and the past/present thread. or only one of them :confused:

Actually, I overclocked it to 1.4GHz from 800mhz. So yes, you could say that it was quite a speed bump :)

Actually, to tell you the truth, I can't really say i noticed a difference, because I overclocked the eMac the day I purchased it :eek:

No, it was actually pretty simple to do. As long as you have steady hands and know how to use a solder gun, its a piece of cake. Now, replacing the hard drive - THAT was a lot of work!

Hello everybody!! I finally got my iPod Shuffle 512MB!!! It's amazing!! I had orginally had ordered it from the Apple Store but a girl in my class told me that Target here had a whole bunch of them. So on Thursday, my mom took me by Target and sure enough they had both 512MB and 1GB models. I brought it home, installed software, plugged it into eMac and it started Autofilling!! It's the most amazing little piece of hardware I've ever used. Beats the crap out of any other MP3 player (except larger iPods!!)

eMac's are a great bargain that many over look. My eMac out performs my PB 12" 1ghz model. All due to the faster HDD of course.

only drawback with eMacs is CRT-display. My Squier Bullet "E'02" doesn't really like those because of it's single-coil mics. Too much distortion.

Yes, and not just some guitar! It's my first guitar bought in 1998, and "E'02" means Edition 2002. I customized it all by myself back then. Whole deck custom tagged, waxed original mics, sculptured, honed & drilled fretboard, enlargened & coiled echo-surface(?), new knobs & .08-gauge D'Adaggio strings to keep on playing longer! Gotta love it.. :D

Sounds cool. Just out of interest, I'm not a guitarist let alone a musician and I don't use an eMac. How does it keep up with Garageband? No problems?

I just bought an ex-education eMac with 800Mhz G4, ATI RV200, 640Mb ram, 40Gb hard disk and CD-ROM for 109. I am loving it - GREAT machines - see my other thread to find out how I upgraded and overclocked it.
