Hi: My son was given his cousin's emac. It is a 1.25 Ghz G4 processor 512k on chip, level 2 cache running on 1.25 hz, 256 MB of DDR SDRAM
40 GB Ultra ATA hard drive supporting 1 GB ram.
I got all this off the box.
He (and I) would like to know what the best upgrades would be. I would like to be able to do them myself so the upgrades need to be relative easy to install. He is 15 so his main interest is in using itunes, msn messenger although he does want to do some video editing etc. The computer has a good editing program, and the Adobe CS suite so has some pretty robust programs.
He has been talking about wanting to get OS Tiger but I don't know whether this is a possible upgrade or indeed the best way to go.
Any suggestions appreciated.
EMAC, Mac OS 9.0.x
