So I have a sort of odd question... how do I induce a hardware failure in an eMac (without taking a hammer to it)? (background: my mother wants to get a new computer - a macbook(pro), but my parents won't budge until their ancient 800MHz eMac bites the dust. she sort of hinted that if I could get the eMac to stop working, she'd be appreciative. I know, I know, not great logic... but I digress) So, is there any good way to stress the hard drive? Make the processor overheat? Something? I know, this is cruel and unusual punishment to a trusty old dinosaur of a mac, but my mother (and father) do want a brand new shiny macbook! Please don't report me to the computer cruelty authorities!
