Which one would be the best for a newbie on OSX.4 Tiger ? Just basic browsing and learning to OS. I bought an eMac locally and the guy misrepresented it and it's problems so I made him take it back.

Thanks

Personally I would get the 933. It is above the minimum spec for Leopard and therefore you could install that later if you wanted. For Tiger either will do and you will see very little difference.

Experienced computer user, applications programmer and component level service engineer but came to the Apple platform with intro of intel!. Pro-photographer and director of electronics company.

Agree 933 is the way to go. Very solid and quite fast for their age the latter model Quicksilvers.
