Oh how the eMac has fallen!

Sat, Feb 28, 2009


In 2002, I bought a 800 Mhz eMac with 128MB of RAM for $1000.  Today you can get a higher spec eMac on Ebay for $100.  Of course, this type of story probably applies to any computer bought more than 5 years ago, but it’s always different when you see one of your own up on the chopping block!  

The eMac was a great machine though, and ran brilliantly for over 5 years before I decided to upgrade.  Sure it weighed like 40 lbs, but that was the style back then, before thin was in.  In a way, the eMac was like the Marilyn Monroe of computers – curvy and egg-shaped.  Wait, what?
