The Last of the CRT Screen Macs - the Emac

Do you remember when Macs were big bulky boxes? When they cost thousands of dollars?

Yesterday I bought an eMac - with keyboard - mouse - and wifi airport card for $40. It looks like brand new - surfs the net - great for checking email. It has a 17 inch color monitor - 60 GB of storage - 1 GB of RAM memory - and a 1 GHZ processor.

The thing feels like it is made of lead - I am guessing maybe 40 pounds worth.

I told Lulu I bought it for the guest house so that visitors can check their email - or facebook home. Secretly - I just couldn't believe I could get a fully functioning Mac for $40. It even plays DVDs.
