I was going to purchase an eMac (with educational discount - if not offset by shipping and sales tax costs), but I would like to get Panther and USB 2.0. Anyone have an idea if Apple will offer a free upgrade to Panther if I purchase an eMac now? I have also heard a rumor that the USB chipsets in many Macs would support USB 2.0 if provided the right driver. Since Panther is made for USB 2.0, does anyone have an idea about the chipsets for USB in eMacs and if it would upgrade to USB 2.0 with Panther? Or am I out of luck until the next upgrade of eMacs.
