I have heard many rumours that the emac can be pimped to have 2gb ram although apple cleary state it can only have 1, I have one gb but am starting to wonder wether I would need more when I start to do more hardcore studio work with the machine. I know the machine is quite powerful for what it is so I just need to know if there is anyway to make more powerful than it already is?

Back with the mac!

It depends on the eMac you have. True, Apple only officially states that 1 GB RAM is the max on all eMacs, but starting with the eMac (USB 2.0) models you could put up to 2 GB and it would be stable.
