    I'm getting an iMac soon, and my eMac will have to go somewhere. I want to get serious with Film making and I was debating whether to get the iMac or the MacBook Pro. But I'm only 15, so I'm saving the laptop for college years. There's obviously going to be something better out there in a few years.

    Anyway, I've listed some ways to destroy my eMac. BECAUSE I HATE IT.

    1. Recycle (yawn- but probably the best way)
    2. Throw it out a window, based on the fact that it is mad slow and is running on Panther)
    3. Smash it to bits with a baseball bat.
    4. Give it to an elementary school (yawn)
    5. Throw it out of the atmosphere into another galaxy using my Jimmy Neutron rocket.
    6. Set it on fire.
    7. Place it on train tracks and watch it brutally get run over.
    8. Slice it perfectly with a bagel slicer.
    9. Grate it with a cheese grater, and serve it for dinner.
    10. Have a robber purposely steal it.

    Can YOU think of a way? :p

    Give it to me?

    Surely someone on here who is close to you would gladly take it off your hands.

    I'm not saying that I'm more fortunate than any of you. I'm simply stating how much i want to strangle it because it freezes every second. I'm on my dad's computer this moment.

    That was what i was going to suggest as well. You can also turn it into a storage unit, display case, or just sell it and use the money towards a Christmas present for yourself.

    That would be awesome if they built a giant blender just for the emac.

    @OP
    You can also gut it out and plant something in it as well and make a geranium.

    Donate it to a charity and use it as a tax write-off. This way everyone's a winner (except you don't get the violent catharsis)
