Earlier this year we bought an eMac as our new main household computer. I chose it because it offers spectacularly good value.

MacInTouch agrees in a performance shootout today:

...all the Apple hype about the G5 falls a little short when you see the low-cost eMac, with its slower G4 processor, pushing the iMac G5 in performance. The eMac is actually faster in several real-world situations, and that raises some serious technical questions that long to be answered.

In the meantime, you'll be getting a high-performance bargain with either the eMac G4 or iBook G4, and you still can't go wrong with the iMac G5.

I have yet to find a circumstance where I'm waiting for the eMac because it's slowing me down. Looks like we made a good decision.
