    Last night I finally purchased my first new Mac and my first new computer since 1997, a 1GHz eMac with SuperDrive and a gig of RAM. :)

    Going from my old computer, a Power Mac 7200/75 to this thing is like going to a Lingenfelter Twin-Turbo Corvette.

    iTunes rocks, too!

    Very, very cool computer.

    Just thought I'd share the joy.

    P.S. I hope I posted this to the right forum. If not I apologize.

    Congratulations. A gig of ram should definetly make Panther roar on the eMac.

    Count me in too!

    After ages of talking about it, the little woman and I went to the computer store a couple of days ago and walked out with Dual G5 1.8Mhz and a 17" studio monitor for me and an iPod mini for her.

    Life is good.

    Still gotta keep my Windows/Lunix PC around for gaming though.

    I still cannot believe how quiet the G5 is compared to the wind-tunnel that was my PC.

    Congratulations to all those getting new Macs!

    For those that are switchers double congratulations to you! I switched myself 1 1/2 years ago and never looked back.

    We now realize that there is a better computer experience out there!

    Good Luck to All

    I usually get off much cheaper than an iPod mini. A pair of shoes usually does it. She's like a G5 in that new shoes must be added in pairs. :D

    Guess it should have been "Dull 1800Khz" superunderclocked G5. Incredible battery life, no noise or heat problems :D

    Congrats on the new eMac!

    I'm still using a nearly three-year-old iBook - wish I could afford to update!

    Enjoy it!
