Excerpt: The eMachines EL1200 is a great value for the price, and should serve your needs just fine for things like general net browsing, CD and DVD burning, uploading photos and video, etc. We've owned ours for over a year now and haven't had any major issues, aside from one virus issue that was fixed right away. My wife does alot of online gaming and it's not the greatest for that, but it gets the job done.
Good Mother-in-law Computer but EL1200 disappoints a little...

Excerpt: I've owned the eMachines EL1200 desktop computer for over a year. I've primilary used it as a bedroom computer, mainly to stream online video from Netflix and Hulu. On the day of this writing, I am retiring it and replacing it with a refurbished AMD X2 dual core machine. The reason: while the eMachines has proven to be a low-energy consuming computer, it can't keep up with the video demands of the streaming world.
Excerpt: The eMachines EL1200-06W is amazing.Ever since I bought this machine, I have turned it from a low-grade nettop, to a true performance machine. I upgraded to 3GB of DDR2 RAM, and replaced the stock hard drive with a Western Digital Caviar Blue Hard Drive. I also took off XP, and I dual-partitioned the hard drive to have Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 RTM Edition.
Excerpt: When I first bought this computer, I didn;t think much of it because it was very small. I was easy to hook up and you were also able to copy a back- up cd for it. I got a virus on it and I used the back up cd to reboot it instead of taking it to a tech to do it and shelling out all that money for nothing. It also came with a flat screen wich I really like because my computer desk is small and it fit just fine it the little spot for it.
Excerpt: The Emachines EL1200-06w personal computer, in my opinion is an excelent value. I purchased mine new for just $398. This was a total package that came with everything I wanted and needed. It included a 19 inch flat panel HD monitor,mouse,keyboard, speakers, and a fully loaded compact tower. The Emachines EL1200 comes with plenty of memory and is loaded with great software. It also includes a CD/DVD drive that burns, erases, and rewrites.
Excerpt: I am not a computer geek, don't have a clue as to what a gigabyte is. Just barely know how to go online, but I like the way that this eMachine directs me with hints for What every button on this system is for. To be able to sit down and not be lost is a joy. To go online and not have to wait forever for the page to load is fantastic! It seems that the more documents I save, the more the system maintains the same pace it started with.
This is quick and enexpensive way to have computer

Excerpt: This is about my e-machine. This is the second one I have owned. I bought both of them at walmart. The mother board is easily hit with viruses. But if you cant afford a name brand computer I would suggest an emachine to anyone. My 1st one lasted 3 yrs and this one is going on 1st year. I can burn music or anything properly. It is an easy set-up and very easy to maintain. I am not great on computers but it has walk-thrus for people new to computer.
