Hey, I've gotten really excited lately at the prospect of buying a mac. I'm a student, though, so price is a major concern--meaning I'll be buying used off of ebay or something of the like. So far, I've sort of narrowed it down to the emac (but I'll take suggestions). I'm not going to be using any high graphic demanding programs on this computer...I just need it to run smoothly. Also, would I be much better off going with the Tiger operating system than I would be with the Panther? Price range- anything below $400. Thanks a ton!
