Summary: I keep stuff a long time [had a car for 18 years]so with this rig I didn't want to be premature in praising; after 2.25 years it is blistering fast, runs all my old programs and new ones just fine. I use a bigger monitor now and don't have to print as much stuff as I used to but have really advanced my skills: wireless printing, scanning, email, internet research, etc because this rig gives me great confidence with its quick clear crisp response every time; reminds me of...
Summary: i got this from the local best buy about a year ago. my laptop power cord had been messed up for a while and i knew it would need to be replaced anyway do to viruses (i didnt have virus protection). anyway, i have had no real issues with this computer after web surfing 8+ hours a day everyday. for the money, it cnnot be beat. my grandpa got a new desktop at the same time, an hp slimline. it has not been as good but that could be do to his and my sister's use patterns.
Great Machine for the Price. Windows7 Incompatible with Some Programs

Summary: After much research on an inexpensive machine to replace my husband's 8-year-old Dell, we decided on this machine which has a great combo of RAM, hard disc, graphics, and speed for the price. It runs beautifully and fast compared with the old computer. Unfortunately, Windows 7, which does seem like a nice improvement over previous MS operating systems, will not support two programs that my husband finds necessary--Mathcad 13 and Dragon Naturally Speaking 11.
Summary: This Emachines Computer delivers when it comes to speed and capacity. Here is a summary analysis of the specs and the benefits: [a] Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor E5400 (2.70 GHz, 2 MB L2 Cache, 800 MHz FSB): this is a high speed brain that will enable this machine to run high end games as well as graphic designing software without any problems. [b] 750 GB SATA hard drive : Like WOW, this will store tons and tons of files.
Summary: I always wondered why people review an item once they have already purchased it...but here I go. I bought the ET-1831-07 a couple of weeks ago and have been pleasantly surprised. Always bought Dells in the past, but went more budget this time, and no complaints so far. Not so bloated with trial software as many suggested, and rather than 750 GB, my computer also came with 1 TB on the hard drive.
Summary: I purchased the Computer from Amazon as I had a large credit balance on my account and the free shipping. I found the shipping to be relatively quick, and the Emachine computer is pretty fast. I have had other Emachines in the past and purchased several for customers, they have been inexpensive, built with quality products, and they last.
Summary: I just received this computer three days ago, so this is rather an early review. I just wanted to point out the things I liked and didn't like about it straight out of the box. As for long-term performance, I can't say anything on that yet, but I might come back and edit this review to include some thoughts on that later on. THE GOOD: When I first took this out of the box, I really liked the look of it.
