eMachines EZ1601-01 All-in-One Desktop Review

 

A reasonably stylish all-in-one with a sub-$400 price-tag and 18.5-inch widescreen display: too good to be true or bargain of the century? The eMachines EZ1601-01 poaches Intel's trusty Atom processor for some desktop duty, offering a squint-free LCD...

Given the budget price-tag, though, we can perhaps forgive the eMachines EZ1601-01′s shortcomings. At $399.99 it makes for a decent web-centric browsing, emailing and instant-messaging desktop, with a more eye-friendly display than a similarly priced...

eMachines EZ1601-01

 

The eMachines EZ1601-01 ($399.99 list) is an 18-inch all-in-one nettop PC. Think of it as a somewhat portable PC with a bigger screen than 17-inch notebooks that cost twice as much. The EZ1601-01 got enough computing power for light work (like...

Compact. Inexpensive. 18 inch screen. It's "enough" for simple tasks. DVD burner

Only 1GB of non-upgradable RAM. Weak integrated graphics. HD video is jerky. Loads of Bloatware, including offers for dial up Internet (sans modem). Only 60-day Norton Internet Security subscription

If you need an absolute bare bones PC to do Web surfing and tasks like school work, the eMachines EZ1601-01 nettop will give you a PC with a large screen for under $400. However, for the price, it is a harder sell against "full" desktops, particularly...

eMachines EZ1601-01

 

At $399, the EZ1601-01 is the least-expensive all-in-one we've seen, by a fair margin. We like its easy portability, but its performance is slower than other nettops.

Significantly less expensive than other all-in-one nettops that have the same specs; lightweight and easy to carry

Lackluster performance, even for a nettop; vertically mounted rear ports make connecting peripherals tricky

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

eMachines EZ1601-01

 

This machine is working well for me. I haven't reached the limits of it but no doubt will do so because of the 1Gb only RAM. Setting up was a typical ACER affair, took a bit of time and sadly you get a lot of nonsense software. I removed all of this...

It works straight out of the box, easy to setup and XP Home doesn't take too many resources. Even AutoCAD runs well on it

It is difficult but not impossible to add 1Gb of extra RAM, just need to figure out how to open the machine

Good Deal

 

So far, so good! Recommend as good starter.

Good product

 

I like its sleek look and screen is a nice size.

Good low cost machine. Takes up very little desk space. I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything went perfect. Seems to run as well as XP did. Very quite machine

Not a fast machine, but does what it claims. Wish it had wireless mouse and keyboard. No complaints with included wired mouse and keyboard

eMachines EZ1601-01 18.5" Widescreen Intel Atom N270(1.60GHz) 1GB DDR2 160GB Intel GMA 950 Windows XP Home

 

Very easy to use and setup. Great PC for the price and good for children to use. Not too much bloatware and easy to remove. Computer came with plenty of packing and does take some to remove. No problems and a great buy. Make a backup a disc as soon as...

Does not come with restore disc, but does come with with two blank disc to make one. Wish it was a ilttle faster. More RAM would be great

Consumer review by:

A good computer for the price ”

 

This is a very good computer for the price. I am surprised to see that it comes with Windows XP SP3 Home Edition. Windows XP is older technology, and Microsoft will stop supporting it very soon. But the memory, 1 GB of RAM, with a 160 GB hard drive, is...

Consumer review by:

a good desktop ”

 

I did not have the money to buy a very expensive computer, so I had to settle for an eMachines desktop. To my surprise, it is actually a very good computer to use. It is fast and when I am online, I can do everything quickly. I like the size of the...
