I've been contemplating buying a new mac for a few months now. I currently have the 1.25 GHz eMac shown here. I'm extremely happy with the performance and everything else about it. I mostly go online, listen to iTunes, and type papers. The only gaming I do is the Sims 2, and it runs great. The only thing I really need to upgrade is a bigger hard drive, but with the cost of a hard drive and buying the OS cd, its just way more worth it to me to buy a new computer. So I'm sure that I don't want to put any money into this computer. I'm just not sure what I want to buy. Money is a little bit of an issue because I'm only in High School and currently don't have a job. It would be very possible for me to get around $400 for my birthday. I also have money saved. At first I really thought that I wanted a MacBook (refurb), but when I look at the price, I know I'd hate myself for spending so much on something i really don't need. So I looked at a mini. I already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I'd probably get the base model refurb. My only concern is how it runs. Will I be sacrificing anything over my eMac? It has to be able to run the Sims 2 as well as the eMac. So can anyone offer any insight to my issues? Thanks.
