    Cool
    I don't know why Icarus made that comment. Let me say that I am sorry he said it, for it was uncalled for. If you really don't know, you don't know.

    Basically, you can get more data on a DVD-R than you can on a CD-R. That is what I was trying to say. Also if you have a superdrive installed, you will be able to create DVD movies using iMovie and iDVD.

    The "dumbass" is really inapropriate...especially in this case, because obviously, you can't count:
    8CD with 700MB each makes 5600MB (5.47 GB, as 1GB=1024MB)
    This won't fit on a DVD-R/+R, except if it's double layered, which the Superdrive can't burn...

    And, by the way, DVD-R/+R (single layer) have a capacity of 4.7GB...

    So, next time, before you name somebody a dumbass, make sure your post is error free...

    Yeah let him know the "deal"..I am an intel user...reason why I ask so much about mac computers are because i want to get one. Get rid of my dell. Actually burn it. Its so rude how people can critize and call people names which is so immature. He probably has problems at home. Disfunctional or somewhat..
    Anyway.. Im still debating if I should get the eMac or wait to see the new G5 Imac.

    :confused:

    I believe that icarus' "dumbass" comment was not directed towards anyone in particular... but more of the nature of that if anybody thought that icarus meant that you could fit 8 CDs in one DVD phisicaly then they would be acting stupid. I think you misunderstood his meaning.

    Mac OS is just beautiful. Don't set your expectations too high, but it is very good, better than Windows XP in my opinion.

    eMacs are a very good machine. Just definately not for gaming, because the Graphics card is soldiered to the motherboard, meaning that you will kill your warranty if you choose to change it, and I would suggest strongly you do not unless you are very familar with the risks involved, including the screen holds a 12KV charge even when off.

    I was thinking of the 650MB CD-RW when I stated 8 CD-Rs.

    Icarus mentioned the 700MB...
    but still... 8 x 650MB=5200MB (5.08GB)

    7.4 CDs (650MB) matches 4.7 GB...

    Sorry, but couldn't help it...


    @Icarus:
    as you see, sometimes comments are not understood the way they are ment...so be careful with the words...

    BTW, I'm pretty sure everybody here knows that, physically, a DVD looks like a CD... so it was a useless comment

    You're on the right track
    eMac's give you a lot of features for the price, no doubt about it. Personally, I love the floating screen on my iMac, but you pay for it. I don't know how big of a hurry you're in, but I'd wait a couple of weeks to see what the new iMac offers.

    You can change the eMac graphics? I'm just curious since I might get one in a sometime (secondhand so obviously warranty not likely to be an issue) and it would be good to be able to upgrade graphics, since everything else you might want to is upgradable (optical drive, hdd, ram + those lovely firewire/usb2 ports to run many things off that cant be fitted inside).
    If anyone can give a link i'd love to read about it.
