Horsepower's not everything

When we bought our new eMac a few months ago, I tried to justify why we didn't go for a more top-of-the-line Power Mac G5. Looks like I wasn't the only one to think that way: here's the eMac vs. a dual-processor Power Mac G5 shootout. The gist? Unless you're doing something that actually needs all that horsepower in your day-to-day tasks, like video editing, scientific computing, or other computationally rigorous things, then you might not even notice that an eMac doesn't have the extra oomph.

I've certainly been happy so far. Then again, given the eMac's closed-up design, I'm likely to have to replace it sooner than if I'd bought a G5. But I'll push it as long as it can go anyway.
