Summary: I have had this computer for roughly 2 months now. I was going to return it and buy the acer bundle with the lcd monitor... DONT DO IT! the processor in the acer was only 1.65ghz while this one is a 2.8ghz . This computer has really changed my mind on emachines. I know acer bought the company and I really did like acers better than emachines. Now that has changed as Acer started making their computer brand way worse than the emachines for the same price if not more.
Summary: If you're looking for a computer to browse the Internet, check email, listen to music, videos, etc. This is the PC for you. It also makes a great inexpensive workstation for an office. I bought a few of these for my company and they work great. Take some advice from a software developer, these PC's are more than enough for most people.
Summary: Overall happy with the PC, is compact, and with good performance for the low price. my biggest complaing is the LACK OF WIRELESS MODEM, should have checked before buying, had to go out and spend an extra 30 bucks for a USB internet wireless adapter.
Summary: We bought this computer for my mom for Christmas. We prepared it and set it all up so we just have to plug it in at her house on Christmas day. My husband is a computer programmer and fell in love with it (shhhh.... he liked it so much so I went out and bought him one to suprise him for Christmas). It is very fast, and seems pretty sturdy. It has more disk space then my mom will ever use.
Summary: I bought this computer for my wife based on her needs and my experience with a new eMachines ET1831 desktop computer over this past year. She had been using a Sony VAIO RZ-22 with Windows XP for close to 10 years, so performance wise this was like going from a buckboard to a new Mustang. Like my ET1831, it has the Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium software package which is outstanding software for home computer use.
Summary: This was my third E-machine and was very happy with the price and the features of this machine. Bought late July, it worked wonderfully then I started getting messages that it was shut down incorrectly and needed to start up in safe mode, which was not the case as I had taken care to shut down properly each time. I did not download anything that was not necessary for my school assignments as I tried to protect and care for my investment.
Summary: A year ago I purchased a similar and slightly more powerful emachine computer. Then a few months ago I purchased this computer for my mother to replace an ancient(11 yr old) gateway that god-bless-it never broke down once but could no longer handle modern software and other computer tasks. I gave the computer to my mother figuring she would be constantly asking me questions and calling me to help her to adjust to the new computer.
Summary: Everything about this CPU is excellent. Need I say more? And it comes loaded with just about everything U could need to get started! My wife loves it for shopping on line, and I love to stay in touch with old military friends, so it works for us!!!!!
Summary: Within a week of receiving this product, the clock started arbitrarily changing time, and I was unable to load any of my game disks, so I called the customer service department for eMachines, and after some discussion was told my problem was a hardware problem, and I was informed that the ONLY solution the company offered was to have the product REPAIRED, not replaced, but repaired, and this on a virtually new product!!!
