I use old computer hardware fairly regularly (I'm skint) and I recently decided to buy an eMac from eBay for £35. It's the USB 2.0 edition downclocked to 1GHz for the education market. I was wondering several things: * Will it be useful as a general purpose desktop (nothing hardware intensive like gaming or videos, just general web browsing and the occasional bit of coursework)? * Is there a way of getting back that .25 of a GHz without messing around with resistors and soldering irons? If not, how difficult is the soldering? * It comes with 512 MB of RAM and I plan to upgrade it to the full 2 GB. Can I use PC3200 RAM or am I stuck with PC2700? I had a look on Google but I found differing opinions. * Will Quartz Extreme work? If not, how screwed am I? Again, Google offered no general consensus. Sorry if I sound like an idiot! I've never used a PowerPC Mac before so I'm not too sure what to expect, although for 35 quid I'm not really fussed even if I've just bought myself a very stylish new paperweight! Thanks in advance for the help!
