Our School has "upgraded" some of them over the years with Kensington 2 button scroll-wheel mice (which OSX supports) so its not as bad anymore. It is incredibly common for our eMacs to freeze while using Word, Excel, Powerpoint, or iMovie. The eMacs cannot run iMovie very well, the video is choppy and loading is a pain. There are always several computers in each lab that are being repaired. Many times the Macs will simply crash, without providing any diagnostic information to tell you what went wrong.
Finally, these eMacs cost the school $1500 a pop, for that amount you could get a MUCH better PC, so I can never understand why our school still uses them.
