Excerpt: I got this computer on the day after Thanksgiving for $199. I was a little skepitical at first because I had not ever heard of emachines. I checked around with some of my friends and family members and got okay reviews. I am not a computer junky but I do like to read my email, facebook, internet shop, and look up things when needed. I had a desktop that I purchased 10 years ago and hated to use it because it was so SLOW.....
Excerpt: first of all i really love this computer ! it is really sleek i love how it is so small and not so bulky like alot of other computers i have had in the past. i also like that it is a nice white color compared to the basic plain grey or black . it is really easy and not complicated to learn. i'm not really a computer genius it was so easy for me to understand.
vista is annoying but is nice for a college student

Excerpt: i am a college student and work part-time at a pizza place. i dont play video games and i dont have time to be on my computer that much unless im doing homework. i download movies and music (legally) and have not had any problems with it. i bought it a year ago and it still runs at a good pace... i think i did a terrible job on the description part so heres what it says on the box... amd athlon 2650e processor. 2GB DDR2 memory.
Summary: I've been using this computer for two months now. Compact, good looking, enough features (for the 1.6ghz processor, not too much to expect), good energy performance, are some of the reasons why I recommend this computer. I'm a computer expert, but I bought this computer for home use, mostly for my wife, but I sometimes "force it" trying to run some applications that demands a lot... some will respond, but others won't (I already knew it before running them).
