    Web Design On An eMac
    Hi,

    I'm tired of Windows XP and need a change: a cheap one. So, I think the eMac would be the way to go. I do a lot of PHP web design and graphic design, so there are a few questions I have.

    Can the eMac run several memory-crunching programs at once? I'm thinking of the Macromedia Studio MX 2004. I'm aware I need to max out the memory for it to have a semblance of workability, but otherwise...?

    Also, I'm sure you can run Apache, PHP and MySQL on a Mac. But I'll ask in case you can't.

    Is the eMac the way to go for a budget conscious user with power hungry programs?

    I'm browsing a site with rumours of new eMacs coming out soon. I'll probably wait to see how that unfolds: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...3&page=1&pp=25.

    Thanks,

    redrum

    Yep you can run all that stuff without no problems at all Im running all those programs you mentioned on my powerbook G4 667 and it does it beautifully so the new eMacs will do it easilly and better than mine.. and I do this for my business They have some really awesome installers for PHP and MySQL also.. makes it really easy to upgrade.. havent tried apache since I havent needed to upgrade it yet.
