Hey i was planning on buying an emac from pc world for £499 but realized its only a 1ghz and 128mb combo drive model, should i pay the extra £49 for the 1.25ghz and 256mb ram?
Thanks in advance!

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.
