I've ordered an eMac for my mum just a few days ago :). It will replace 
this horrible, constantly crashing piece of hardware she has right now: 
Compaq Presario.
Most of her questions about Windows (in the short periods of time it 
was working), were so Mac-oriented, that I deeply admire Apple for 
their understanding the needs of a non-technical user, who can watch 
movies, listen to the music, import digital camera images without even 
knowing "folders" en "files" concept.
Anyway, I am very curious how it will be going... the eMac must arrive 
this Sunday :p
