    Ah too late, I didn't get it. But the info will still be useful bc there are many 700 Mhz eMacs for sale so I have many chances. Anyone used a 1.25 Ghz eMac and a 700 Mhz one to compare them?

    As far a upgrading goes for the eMac your very limited. About the only thing internal you could upgrade is the hard drive. I believe the graphics chips and the processor are permant on the motherboard as they are on the iMac. So what you get is what your stuck with.

    Actually you should keep in mind the emac is extremely overclockable. There was a person on these forums that got his 800MHz emac (EDIT: i think) up to 1.6GHz. If you are comfortable doing that kind of thing that would be good for you.

    I have the exact same computer as you are describing 700Mhz, no modem.. etc. What do you want to do with it. Don't think about playing any serious games on it. Warcraft 3 is barley playable. If you are going to do e-mail, web, Word, iMovie.. you should be fine. It isn't at all snappy, but gets things done. The 1.25 is probably at least Twice as fast.

    The first emac (nvidia gf2mx gfx) isn't very overclockable.
    The second (radeon 7500 gfx) versions is.
    I believe that most 800mhz could reach over a ghz, but i think the 1600mhz was a 1GHZ machine. I wouldn't try to push a 1GHZ to 1.6GHZ either..
