eMachines

I'm thinking about getting another pc when my tax refund check comes in.

Does anyone have an eMachine? Here's what I'm looking into:

Many e-machines are total pieces of crap and cannot be upgraded.

You were warned.

If you are going to spend almost $600 on a new computer, dont buy an Emachine. At least go buy a Dell or Gateway. Or heck, have someone build one for you.

Try newegg, u can get a ton more computer for the same price or less. Putting a PC together is actually quite simple.

They were pretty crappy 4-5 years ago but have come a long way in improving their product and actually have better service for home customers than Dell if you need it.

I just bought an Emachine 2 months ago.

Celeron 2.4 ghz processor. Good . Not really for high end 3d gaming but can play alot of 3d games. This system can play DVD movies.

Flat sreen -17 inch. Good. No defects.

Hard drive is not the fastest but 60 gb. not bad.

Speakers are not loud enough if you like loud mp3 playing.

256 mem. not bad . not great.

Got a CDRW drive that can play DVD's . Nice.

Don't use it to play directx 3d games. has the built in intel Agp which sucks. Your limited on games.

Came with a printer. Ok. not bad.

Bought mine for like 700 with rebates and final price was like $369. EXCELLENT VALUE !

Does not come with WinXP installation disk. Real negative here. If you need to reinstall xp then it deletes/formats your disk and you lose all your info. Buy a package of CDRW's and save your important files because XP always screws up eventually.

Comes with word Microsoft Money and Works(lesser of Word). Good.

Good value ! IF your not a gamer . Get used to Blue Leds.

Emachines aren't bad.. Use the same components as other computers usually.. There isnt a emachine "processor" etc... If you arent into gaming and want to use it for Internet, maybe some business applications, its really not that bad.. I built my own computers, but if you aren't into that, Emachine is a inexpensive option.. Don't listen to the "dell" experts, they are always overpriced in my opinion .. And the great technical support all the way from Thailand, .. Thats a plus!!...

I'd still recommend using newegg and building a PC yourself. Since you already have one up and running, buying the parts and learning how to build it yourself is a great option that will allow you to upgrade on your own in the future, troubleshoot, etc.

I'm not saying to go Dell rather than eMachines, but after some of the horror stories I've heard about the eMachines non-standard BIOS, I'd be vary wary.

I'm really not sure what to get. Probably should just stay with HP. This one has been problem free for 2 years...
