    My grandfather has been using an old Windows PC (circa 1994, an AIO Compaq Presario 5528) that finally died and now he would like a new computer. Thankfully he is agreeable to getting an eMac as I recommended (the AIO design, cheap price and the CRT are ideal for him). So, two questions...

    Where can I get the best deal on a combo-drive eMac? He will be using it for e-mail, internet and mostly card games (solitaire, poker, etc.). An earlier generation would be fine, but I would prefer new/Apple re-furb for warranty purposes. Anyone know a place that is selling the previous generation eMacs for $599? I thought I heard of something like that a while ago. There is nothing in the Apple re-furb store right now.

    Also, any recommendations for freeware/shareware card games?

    Thanks.

    Keep checking back at the apple store refurb page. Refurb availability changes all the time.

    You might also check this page (updated on fridays):

    I have a refurb 1.25 GHz eMac and am very happy with it.
