    I would. You'll definitely want the additional RAM, so for the money, you might as well have the faster processor too.

    I buy the same emac that you're thinking of getting and the 128mb ram just wasn't enough. Applications like Dreamweaver and Photoshop just ran too slow. In the end I ended up paying for 512mb extra ram. [Read my thread so see the problems I had].

    From my limited experience I would say that 128mb isn't enough - you need at least 256mb but 512mb is better. You can go up to 1024mb on the 1ghz model.

    Buy the new eMac. 1) you'll need more ram, 128 is barely adequate for the system, 2) you'll get the latest model, so you'll get a longer usable life from it, and 3) you'll get the new computer warranty.
    I'm not sure what the conversion rate is but it seems like the difference in cost is less than the cost of an additional RAM chip for the 1ghz model.
