    Im purchasing an eMac in a couple days, but am a little confused about performance. Its a 1 GHZ PowerPC G4 with 256MB of Ram but my last pc blew up (literaly) However the 1GB of RAM that was in still works and will fit in it. Besides that my Questions pertain to Leopard and Time Machine. I Know that Leopard will run on this Mac, But what about performance? and I heard that the eMacs cant experience the i candy Time Machine offers. How So? is it true? I really want the Ability to use Time Machine. (Right now i'm just using Genie Timeline for my Windows 7 PC)

    Well I ran Leopard on our eMac 1GHz USB 1.1 without any trouble. It has a Radeon 7500 which is enough for Quartz Extreme so I don't see why the Time Machine graphics wouldn't work. Yours will either be that same model, or the 9200 on the USB 2.0 eMac. Either way, I don't see you having any problems.
