    Question Adding AirPort & SuperDrive to an eMac?
    I've recently bought a second hand eMac 1.25Ghz (like this) from a Uni that I work at and I want to get it online wirelessly. Now I am completely new to Macs so bear with me, but is it possible to buy the AirPort component and install it myself to get it online? Or would I need a USB Wireless adapter that I've seen online for around AUS$100?

    I've currently got a wireless router home network set up.

    Also, same sort of question, if I bought a SuperDrive would I be able to install that too? Or are these eMac's too old?

    Many Thanks!

    Seems that you can install the Airport card pretty easily yourself. Not sure about the SuperDrive though.

    You're going to need an original Airport card, rather than the newer ones.

    HTH.
