CNet Reviews

"The good: Inexpensive; ample room for future upgrades.

The bad: Slow CPU; wimpy hard-drive capacity and memory combined with 32-bit Windows"

And that’s based on their listed $325 price and doesn’t factor in the Win7 upgrade.
Given the $100 discount seems like a solid deal.

How would this be for a gaming computer?

Emachines - don’t think this has all the bells & whistles I’m looking for.

Not bad for a second or third computer. Definitely a good one for the kids or someone who just browses the Net.

And isn’t the OS eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 7?

Of course they have this the day after I ordered an Acer for $250.

nice. what makes it refurbished? i have a vizio lcd tv from woot that was refurbished, and every so often it freezes and i need to unplug it. what do you suppose will be the first component to fail on a refurbished computer?

Would this qualify for the Windows 7 upgrade? Does that even count on a refurb?

Probably terrible.

Well it depends on if you like playing games from the 90’s

i was definitely praying for a monitor to come up with HDMI :frowning:

It would be great for solitaire or minesweeper.

How will the gaming be on this?

I’m going to have to agree…

It would probably be awesome for Oregon Trail!

A great machine to buy and scab the good parts out of it, for those of you with slightly older, less stable computers.

at least with dell, the win 7 “free upgrade” still requires shipping and handling costs.
