My wife and I are kicking around the idea of getting a new computer. The machine we have now is an IBM Aptiva running Windows 95/Pentium I/2.something GB hard drive which my wife bought in '96 (quite a dinosaur, I know!). In short anything we buy will be a huge improvement. We are leaning towards the 1GHz G4 eMac or maybe the Dimension 4600C from Dell, and spending between $1,000 and $1,500. Side note: my wife (teacher) qualifies for discounted educational pricing. Any comments, pro or con, from your experience with the eMac or 4600C? We plan on buying a digital still camera and someday a digital camcorder. Some CD/DVD burning or MP3 action - the iPod looks appealing, although pricey. Other than that, just your usual internet/e-mail (using dial up service for now) and some word processing and spreadsheet work and Kiplinger TaxCut at tax time. The eMac comes with 256MB of RAM, upgradeable to 1GB. My question is - will 256 be enough RAM? Should we add more to start with or add it later if we find we need it? Thanks.
