My eMac has been extremely annoying in the following case: I had to make a video for my Film Class in school. It is about 7G. I completed the video, fortunately, but every time i played it back, it would be extremely choppy. The audio is choppy as well. Occasionally it would freeze and the rainbow swirl cursor would start to appear. I have 1G of RAM and 22.6G of memory in my hard drive. The computer is now in the apple store for the night. They say that an eMac is obviously not created for making videos... But why would there be a movie application on the computer by default? There has to be some extent of making movies. I hope to get serious with film one day... And i really need your advice on this. My movie will not play back!
