Hello, New to the mac scene. I Just got my first mac a few days ago. an iMac G3 500mhz 20gb Hd and 384 Ram. oldie but goodie...lol. I love it. It has os 10.4.11, and runs quite smooth. But my wife would like to replace our 1yr old acer **** box of a laptop with a used mac. The eMacs are very cheap on ebay, and i was wondering if it would make a pretty good every day computer. it has... G4 1.42Ghz, 1GB ram, 160GB hd, DVDRW I dont want to do anything intense with it just web, music, itunes, and she has to have atleast photoshop 7. I will never do another laptop of any kind again so please dont suggest it. Windows has screwed me over so many times. And we recieved this acer laptop for xmas of '08 and it has fallen apart. from 3 usb ports i now have 1. the cd drive has stopped working, the keyboard has lost keys, and the screen cable has broken so i have it hooked up to a CRT monitor. Oh and we have gone through three power adapters. All of this just outside of the warranty date. And the damn thing has been pampered since it was removed from the box.The only thing it has going for it is the Wireless. If you dont think an eMac is a good idea, than what do you suggest? I dont have alot of money to put into it, maybe some memory upgrades. But i thing 1Gb should be sufficent. Thanks for any help. Great forum by the way!
