Go for the lastest model eMac. They are not sold in the stores any longer but I believe they are still sold for educational institutions so you can prolly get one from somewhere. Or maybe an excellent condition used eMac from ebay, look for the 1.42GHz model and look for one with extra RAM maybe with 768Mb.sb58 said:I want to buy a Mac... it'll be my first one ever. i wanted to know what would be a nice starting kinda thing... i was mainly looking for cheap, but decent. any suggestions?

You could look at the MR market place or Apple refub, since you will not be using an high powered apps, a iMac G5 might be good for you. But the intel is nice, but G5 are very cheap now
For another 95 dollars you can get a refurbished iMac (new intel version) ...sb58 said:How's this seem for a Mac Mini:
