    I am leaving the mac world :( I just got a HP computer with a slow celeron and 256 memory. My parents though need a more powerful computer, their 233 mhz beige isn't cutting it. So i am giving them my eMac and using the HP still macs hit intel. This is not going to be fun.

    What operating system does it have? XP, 98, 2000, ME?

    Why don't you give them the HP and you keep the eMac? Just a thought... or couldn't you have bought a MacMini for the low cost of what you paid for an HP?

    Contact the Legal Aid Society in Mesa ... there has to be some sort of alternative remedy available to you aside from the draconian step of giving an eMac to parents. A line in the sand has been crossed. Best wishes during the trying times that lie ahead.

    Good ploy on their part to get a cheap emac.

    Good luck with HP. Not a bad company's computer to have if you have to have a non-apple, but it still runs windows.

    I didn't pay for the computer!!! it was given to me. I am giving the parents the eMac because xp is just a tad harder than os x ;) I also need a pc for a required computer class. I need to be able to take tests and stuff at home. I yes, I am going to switch back when the mac mini features a one of those intel mobile chips with low wattage.

    well... i hate this pc. All it does is fight with me. I am switching back to my eMac once this computer class is over. This hp is going into a closet.

    Keep your chin up and surround yourself with good friends that you can laugh with. They will help you through this time of crisis.

    no one understands my hatrid of pcs. I have been using macs all my life. I learnt computers very young, and started with one of those old all in ones. I guess i am just not used to having antispyware and antivirus running in the background, unified menu bars, and having to fight to get software updates installed :mad: Luckily i was smart; i didn't remove anything from my eMac and didn't make my parents administrators, so basically I am needed to do anything to it. It should be in better condition when i get it back, seeing it will be used maybe three times in the next three months, giving the eMac a nice and very needed rest after two and a half years of great service.
