    Alright, right now I have a Windows PC with 880MHz and 128MB RAM. As you can see, it needs upgrading. >_> I've been checking out the Mac for a few months now, and I think I'm ready to make the leap. However, the problem is that whole Intel dealy.

    I have $1300 I can spend on this new Mac I plan to get, and I don't want a laptop. Which narrows it down to Mac mini, eMac, or iMac. I honestly don't know what to pick, although I don't think I'll get the iMac since I'll probably have to upgrade in about 2 years or so after that Intel thing is complete. But I really do not want to wait another year with this computer I have.

    Thanks for the help. :D

    Yeah I agree. Get an iMac. Those will still be good for most tasks in three to four years. The G5 is the way to go, if you want a computer that will last long past the Intel transition.
