eMachines T6420 Video
The eMachines T5254 costs less than similar systems from Dell and HP, and it outperforms them (in some cases), and uses less power while doing so. You can't configure it before making a purchase, but eMachines has chosen this system's specs wisely, and with a level of environmental consciousness that make it a very enticing deal.
The feature-rich, top-of-the-line eMachines T5026 is Intel based and delivers excellent performance, but it sacrifices the valuable graphics upgrade path of its AMD-based predecessor.
The eMachines ET1161-03 delivers fewer features than its competition at the same price. Stretch your dollar further, and you'll find a desktop PC with significantly better components for only $50 more.
The eMachines new T5226 desktop is powerful enough to run Windows Vista smoothly; we just wish it offered more-compelling hardware for the money.
You'll be hard-pressed to find a more well-rounded desktop at this price level; the eMachines T3092 deserves a spot on any budget buyer's short list.
The eMachines T5224 has a sleek new look, runs Windows Vista and delivers respectable budget performance with most of the features you'd want, but we think you can find a better PC for the money if you shop around.
The eMachines ET1831-07 isn't much of a video playback device, but in all other respects, this is a solid budget PC. Perhaps the best deal going for its features, it also outperforms other desktops in and above its price range on general computing tasks. We recommend this system to anyone shopping for a low-cost computer.
The versatile, expandable, reasonably powerful eMachines T6524 is a solid family computer and a perfect dorm-room companion that gets mainstream jobs done with aplomb.
The M6811 is a decent desktop-replacement laptop, but there are better systems for the money.
We wouldn't suggest spending less than $500 for a PC. If you can spend a little bit more, you'll find that the eMachines T2958 provides just enough for basic computing demands.
