Those are Core Duo iMacs and they either have a bad hard drive or bad graphics card.

Step up the price a little and get a Core 2 Duo iMac.
Gets you 64bit at least for the price of a typical RAM upgrade :p

If we had C2D iMacs they would be $500+ and they usually go fast.

As said many, many times by now, get a C2D Mini. You can find them for cheap on Ebay.

OR, build a Hackintosh. My old Dual-Core ran Snow Leopard fine, and to build that now would cost maybe $100 tops.

Seen them cheaper than that already, and that was even my model which is 20" already.

Also a Mac Mini is a good choice, unless you explicitly want an All-in-one...

Computers that are that old don't really feel much faster from model to model, because usually you'll limit them to basic tasks and do your main work on a better machine.
So apart from OS and some light applications it's nothing to compare here usually.

C2D means you get up to Lion.
Snow Leopard runs extremely fine on C2Ds.

From $100 to $200 or so, but I don't think they're worth it. The cheap ones will not have wifi or bluetooth (they were configured options on the first mac minis), and they've got G4s in them.

I've seen C2D ones for only slightly more, which came default with wifi and bluetooth, and are very reliable computers that you can work on (more easily than an iMac or a Macbook). A C2D is still a decent processor for modern applications. Just make sure you don't get a Core Solo model, which are the worst ones they ever made. :laugh:
