Ok someone without any computer, wants to start using a Mac. Has used a PC prior to this. Is thinking about a intro model, doesn't want to spend very much. Won't be doing any heavy processor work. Mostly internet, word processing, email, and maybe some iphoto stuff.

Really wanted a Laptop, but the cost, was a big factor. I suggest this:
Apple eMac 1.42 GHz 2GB RAM 160GB DVD±RW AirPort
My thought was that it's still supported by Apple, has enough RAM for Tiger, and though dated it's not out of date, yet. Plus the $400 price tag was easy access into the Mac world.

I checked the Apple web site and this model was NOT part of the recall. Any feedback on this idea?

Thanks!
