Those are good looking prices for an eMac. And yes, that is money much better spent. A G4 is livable as a daily machine, a G3 not so much, for me anyway.I wouldn't go over $100 for this machine, even with the upgrades.
Wegener Media, a good reputable dealer, has eMacs starting at just $129. You'll get much better video card and a G4.
If you can get this iMac for dirt cheap it can still be great for word processing, email, basic web surfing, iTunes jukebox and a TV/DVD player. These are especially great for kids K-6 edu games running in Classic.
The problem I'm having right now is my 6 year old is using a bunch of Adobe Flash-based web sites like Club Penguin. These sites are dog slow on his iMac G3 400mhz. I think I'm going to pick up an eMac for him.
Absolutely. I'd say spending anymore that $25 for the last gen G3 imac is a ripoff and a complete waste of money.criagslist 10 dollars anything more is a rip off since there good for nothing.
