I hate to say it but Emachines are the worst PC since Packard Bell

Pentium D? Seriously? Do they even make those anymore?
At least eMachines are highly upgradable. If you’re so inclined, you can probably upgrade it with Core 2 Duo processors. And you can definitely add a video card, but I don’t know if the power supply can handle it.

Hmm, makes a good throw-down computer. If there is such a thing.

Not even good enough to give to my computer illiterate mother :frowning:

A $200 laptop would be though.

Do ya really mean to say that it’s a DUAL CORE PENTIUM D??

Line 1 under Features! Perhaps that is over stating things a bit.

EDIT:
Then I went to read the Intel site, and that’s what it says the D 820 is. Maybe a good computer for hosting the household video camera surveillance system…

I stand corrected by Intel’s web site.

I might just get one to throw in my garage, network it into the house, and use it when I’m tinkering around.

2 bills, who cares if it gets trashed?

Yipee. 83/100 on Alatest.

Almost pulled the trigger, for a kids machine, until I saw vista. Memory needs to be upgraded right out of the box and even then vista runs like crap. Vista kills it for me. I have one machine running vista, I won’t have two.

Why are you guys hating on it so much? For $200 it’s really not bad. Sure it doesn’t have the latest and greatest in there, but for someone starting off with computers or to just do basic stuff on it (not intensive gaming), it’s more than fine.
And yes, the Pentium D is dual-core.

Plus, Vista has come a long way since it was launched and it’s really not bad at all. I have Home Premium x64 and it runs flawless. My dad bought an e-machines with a single core AMD @ 2.4GHz I think not too long ago with 1GB of RAM, and it runs Basic just fine. No lag or anything.

Go ahead and mock me, but this looks like a good deal. How much is Vista operating system anyway?

Anyone else notice that cputopia, cputopia1, cputopia2, and then cputopia3 all bought three of these?

Maybe cputopia3 didn’t buy 3…

It has to have value to be worth anything.

Not bad, Heres a review from tiger [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBtly6ffz9s[/link]
Its even got a pci x16 slot

If it had XP it would have been great, anyone know if you can downgrade it?

don’t hurt me for saying this… but i like my emachine.

its what im using now, and well im even running on a worse one, the emachines t3522.

i got it from bestbuy on black friday for $200 with the monitor, speakers, and printer.

this is a pretty good deal.

XP would work much better with this processor and RAM. The change would co$t me $100 more.

With XP I would have been seriously tempted for the kids room, but not with Vista.
Still adecent deal though.
