    Questions about eMac specs
    Hello,
    My friend is offering me an emac for $50. Its an emac g4 1.42GHZ,ATI Radeon 9200. My questions are:

    Is this emac fast enough so that I can watch videos on the internet without slowdown?

    Is this a good emac for basic use like web browsing and watching videos?

    Yep, it will be able to do both those things no problem at all.

    Specs:
    Mac Mini Core i7 2012 | White 2009 MacBook 2 Ghz | 733 Mhz G4 Quicksilver
    That's a great bargain machine for $50, and it will do any of the basics no problem.

    Just check the ram, and upgrade it to 1 gig or over if it only has 512 meg

    In fact even better news! That eMac will handle 2 x 1GB modules of memory to make it fast and responsivle and will run leopard very nicely.

    Here is a link to the 2GB memory from OWC:-

    Yes, and yes. I have a 1.25 GHz model. It shows videos, plays streaming music etc with little or no lag. Streaming video - mine does YouTube vids without fuss, as long as the stream from the server is constant.

    Odd simmons777 that it has a 9200 video card as the standard card was a 64MB 9600 which is Core Image and Quartz Extreme compatible.

    You are a lucky man. Like you, I have no desire to move from my eMac (once I've expanded the hd capacity and repaired the 40 Gb disk) except perhaps in order to get a 1.42 GHz for its better graphics.
