From the Manufacturer

Originally designed for use in educational institutions, the eMac is Apple's most affordable PowerPC G4-based system. It comes complete with a 17-inch flat CRT display and a space-saving, all-in-one design that fits right in your home, plus award-winning digital lifestyle applications and Mac OS X, Apple's rock-solid operating system.

The eMac's PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine is so fast that its performance is measured in gigaflops, or billions of floating-point operations per second. In fact, it uses the same 128-bit vector-processing technology featured in scientific supercomputers--just what you need to accelerate intensive multimedia calculations, import audio files, and create video transitions in iMovie. The bottom line is that the eMac G4 processor makes digital media creation faster--which in turn means that you can spend more time playing and creating and less time waiting.

Not only will you do more (and faster) with the eMac, you'll see more, too. The eMac sports a 17-inch (16-inch viewable) flat CRT display. The display offers nearly 40 percent more viewing area than a 15-inch CRT, so you'll have almost 40 percent more workspace--perfect for viewing large images and multiple Web pages and documents. Since the screen is flat, there's less glare, making it easier on the eyes.

The eMac's all-in-one design has some tremendous advantages as well. For instance, there aren't a lot of extra cords, so setup is simple and desktop clutter is kept to a minimum. And in addition to the stunning display, the AirPort-ready eMac comes with a built-in 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for high-speed Internet access, plus FireWire, USB, and amazing stereo speakers--all in one compact computer that's smaller than most stand-alone PC displays. The eMac design is about the same size as the 15-inch-CRT-based iMac--8mm shorter, actually. And its body is made of polycarbonate plastic, the same material used to manufacture bulletproof glass.

The eMac comes with a CD-RW drive, perfect for playing CD-ROMs and burning your own music or data CDs. In addition, it provides you with the fastest and easiest way yet to access the Internet. It's so easy to set up and use, you'll be online and surfing the Web in minutes, using the 10/100Base-T Ethernet port for broadband (including DSL and cable modems) or the built-in 56K modem, or an optional AirPort card for working with the Web wirelessly. The Internet Setup Assistant appears the first time your eMac is turned on and automatically configures your system for your Internet service provider. All you need is an Ethernet connection or phone line--the eMac comes complete with everything else.
