    Hooked it up, and it's a iMac Summer 2001, 500MHz G3 (750cx). Has a gig of ram and OS X 10.3. Woo-hoo!
    That's an AWESOME find! It's one of the "faster" iMac G3's, has maxed out ram, and it has one of the newer OS's that'll run on that Machine.

    Got the eMac today.... burn in is not as bad as I expected, there's a VERY faint image of a login screen. I'm actually on it right now, and it's great... I put Tiger on it. The case is very nice as well, no scratches or cracks. Very satisfied with my $44.99 purchase.

    50voltphantom, how does 10.5 run on your eMac? I assuming it's pretty good?

    I use my eMac all the time as an internet machine and it runs Leopard just fine. My parents have a 1.0 GHz model that they're running Leopard on so I didn't have any worries about running it on a 1.42 GHz model. They are just a fantastic Mac for the price you can get them at lately. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. I currently have 1 GB of RAM installed because when I ordered it I had only read about Apple's maximum RAM spec and not the actual maximum (2 GB) so I'll probably upgrade again someday. I'm also planning on doing an LCD screen mod in the very near future. The screen on mine is "just" starting to show it's age.

    Actually I JUST put 2GB of REALLY high quality Corsair XMS memory (I paid HUGE money for it new) in the eMac a few minutes ago... and the performance difference is crazy. I essentially quadrupled the memory, so it's a huge difference. Geekbench score is 864... not insane by any means but really good.

    Here we go...



    I find it odd how they show it as a (USB 2.0) eMac even though it's a 2005 model. Someone told me it would show up like that as the 2005 is essentially a "USB 2.0" model with a faster G4 and Radeon 9600.

    The 1.42ghz (USB 2.0) eMacs were sold from May, 2005 to October, 2005...so calling it a "2005" model makes perfect sense.

    The previous eMac (the 1.25ghz USB 2.0 model)...was sold from April, 2004 to May, 2005.

    It all makes sense!

    Yeah, I called it a 2005 because everymac.com did... so I assumed that was the official name.
