Yeah, I was thinking of getting one at IBuyPower. They seems cheap for the power they give.

eMac w/ Mac OS X 10.4.5, 1.25GHz, 768MB DDR Ram, 40GB harddrive, and an ATI Radeon 9200.

Dell desktop w/ 3.2GHz, possible 2GB DDR Ram, 120GB harddrive, and Intel Extreme.

That included games, photoshop, EVERYTHING they tested, heck even apps that were Mac Universal certified ran on Windows XP better than Mac OS X.
this is a very important bit of info. When Apple released its products featuring the intel processors, it wasnt a hundred percent great decision, BECAUSE all the optimizing that apple had done for creative applications like photoshop on their older architecture was thrown out the window.
Apple's current OS does NOT have the capabilities to run all the applications faster than PC core duo notebooks. We'll really be able to compare PC. vs. APPLE core duo when the new Mac OS comes out.
Although Apple's promise of improved compatibility for the new Intel cpus is great, I for one dont have the time to wait and see. Especially because I do graphic design, and 3d stuff, and those are ironically the applicationis that run slower on the Intel Macs.

The Intel Core Duo match has been won by PCs, the next match is the new OSs. My bet is Apple will regain authority with its new OS despite Vista's capabilities.
