Yes, XCode compiles "Universal Binaries" - Programs that contain Intel and PowerPC code, so no problem there...

 

Just a word of advice, it is a royal pain in the ass to replace the Hard Drive in an eMac. It took me and a friend about six hours...as for wireless+RAM, that's easy...

Learn the system

Write basic programs using xCode

Make an iWeb webpage

maybe use a bit of iMovie and iDvd

An intel mac or hackintosh will perform a lot better than a G4, the G5 is quite fast though...

I hated working on eMacs. They're big and heavy because of the monitor. It seems like every one of them needed the IVAD cable replaced, which was annoying to do, and putting them back together was even a pain, though I can't remember why -- I think it was something with the power button cable.
