"AMD Athlon NEO processor, Nvidia GeForce 9300 graphics"

 

Odd combination. When did nVidia start supporting a AMD processor with the 9300?

Ahhh the article is wrong.  The graphics is a 9200 IGP

  Sorry Lily, but you're wrong about Emachine's " low cost = low quality".  Emachines used the same components as everyone else, for the most part. They did utilize low cost mainboards and small cases that hindered the
addition of add-in cards, but that was something that most buyers of
these machines didn't really care about.

Heck, even the power supplies (which were sometimes custom sized for the small cases), ran for over 10 years in most of the machines that I've seen, and I've seen plenty. The new age Emachines, those built after the Acer/ Gateway takeover, appear to be of pretty good quality also.

 Fugly.  Don't know why this company is still around.  Never made anything worth having or mentioning.  Now this is something right out of the original PS1 or Packard Bell play books.  Make it as propietary as possble with itnent that it will be nothing more than what it is now.

Low quality ? I do assosiate Emachines with realiable and stable PC .My first PC was Emachines back to 2000 and it still runs !!!!! All of my laptops are Emachines and I do my job on it . Cheap ? Yes . Good quality ? Hell Yes ! But look at components of this PC  , AMD Neo and ION . I think it can be interesting because Neo doesn't produce as much heat as Atom .

I have to give Emachines credit, although I'd never own one, they have always been just fine for your standard user and with the amount that come through my door for repair, they are usually at the end of a pc's normal life cycle or further. Their usually ready for the recycle heap by the time they get to me, but again, they have usually been on forever, become completely covered inside by an inch of dust, and probably only quit because it just couldn't handle the lack of heat dissipation any longer.  Ugly, non-upgradable, and puny on the configuration side, but they won't die. As much as I hate to admit it, they've done well for their target audience.
