I've been working at a prestigious private K-12 school in New York City for almost 30 years, and have set up and maintained every major Apple desktop (and a subset of Apple laptop) machines from the Apple ][ to the latest i7 Macbook Air.

comment Mini Display port - HDMI to LG TV image problems
Can you connect at other resolutions with no color problems? There could also be problems with the DP <> HDMI adapter itself. Do you have another adapter to test?

comment Bad performance MacBook Pro Retina
Um ... what constitutes 'bad performance'? What objective measurements can you give us that will help us help you? Remember, a MBAir has a solid-state HD, which means app loading, file saving, etc, is much, much faster than a non-SSD HD. The mid-2014 13" Macbook Pro does not have a SSD or Fusion Drive (mix of SSD and spinning-disk HD) option. Perhaps the bad performance is related to this. Please edit your answer to give us the specs on you MBP.

comment eMac stuck - won't boot, won't eject disc
Matteo's suggestion is valid. The optical drive could be failing or if you don't use it much, be contaminated with dust. After the disc ejects, try inserting/ejecting the disc a few more times in a row in an attempt to blow off some crud from the CD/DVD reader lens and 'unstick' the laser travel mechanism. To do this, you'll have to hard-boot a few times.
