    Hi,

    I'm selling an eMac. Its two years old, i doubt its a sooperdooperdrive but i can't find out, or if its a 700mhz, 1GB or whatever... where can i find that info on the mac as all the booklets are a generic and give no information from what i can see!

    Also, what do you think its worth? Its barely been used, has all original CDs, documentation and Photoshop 7/Illustrator 10.

    Cheers!

    -Rob

    Choose 'About This Mac' from the Apple menu for the processor and RAM information. Clicking on 'More Info' will open System Profiler, which details your hardware configuration. The optical drive information can be found under Hardware > ATA.

    Naturally, the value of the eMac will depend on the specs.

    Thanks dude. It says "PROCCESSOR:powerPC G4" but no sign of what speed that is...

    Do you think that it has been owned by someone famous will help?

    The Hardware Overview (in System Profiler) should give you the speed of the CPU.

    I just asked my Mac where system profiler is and it said... "Computer says no."

    You should be able to locate the System Profiler in Applications > Utilities.

    Just incase, I think you can just pry open the Optical drive door on the front and the stats that it was built with will be on the inside of the door. Atleast thats how it is on my school's eMacs.
