    the most recent 15 powerbooks and imac g5's are similar in price

    i allready have a desktop slower than these i am looking at
    but dont really care which one of these to get

    what are reasonable prices for each macine?
    which one is a more problem free machine ?

    I would hang in there until you see a Core Duo 2 iMac 20" on the refurb pages.

    Even a MacBook 2.0 GHz refurb with enough RAM would be light years faster than your eMac.

    Having a portable is really handy and it might get you through the core wars until you're ready for that Octa Core Tower ;)

    the old powerpc chips just arent fast enough to warrant paying even the refurb price IMHO
