After what seems likes a year of indecisiveness, I'm about to take the plunge and pick up a new Combo eMac and stick a gig of RAM in it and bluetooth (with a new Sony Ericsson T610 to partner with it). Having recently moved away from home I no longer have a broadband internet connection and I'm back on ghastly dial-up. My question is this: as and when software updates become available, will I be able to get my dad to download them onto his PC, burn them to a CD, post them to me, and then me install them on my machine? I believe some of the updates can be huge, and while I wish to stay up to date, I can't have the phone line tied up for hours on end. Thanks for your help. I've been lurking here for a while and this is officially my first post!
