I would hang in there until you see a Core Duo 2 iMac 20" on the refurb pages.

Even a MacBook 2.0 GHz refurb with enough RAM would be light years faster than your eMac.

Having a portable is really handy and it might get you through the core wars until you're ready for that Octa Core Tower ;)

the old powerpc chips just arent fast enough to warrant paying even the refurb price IMHO
