Despite my bad experiences with apple products in the past(it was a combination of other factors, i.e an idiot of a Mac buyer at my old school) I have decided mainly due to iLife, curiosity and setup to buy an apple of my own, I am however a poor student and still leery, so I think I will start myself off with an eMac, and see if I want to get a full setup from there. Ill use it for: iLife(all the programs), some basic photo editing ,simple applications software and maybe a few RTS games, but I do most of my gaming on my Xbox, so game performance is not my concern. I will get it with a super drive and a Gb of ram. If I get one that is. You see, the mhz Myth has never been quite explain to me, other then there is a differences based on other parts of the CPU.I still am considering a PC(perhaps just for this reason + initial cost[keep in mind that in Canada which ups the price difference a little]), and as much as iLife and other software would promote me to buy a little lesser computer(if it is in fact lesser) to have iLife is not necessary to my needs and for that reason I am stuck. So can anyone explain to me or give me a good site that explains the myth in full, and what in PC terms(for the functions I want) this eMac is, without understanding this, I dont know if a Intel Pentium 4 Processor at about 3.0GHz w/ 533MHz FSB is compared to a 1Ghz G4. Can anyone help?
