eMachines T5088


Under the hood, the T5088 is almost identical to the T3612. Only the (slightly) more powerful processor, larger hard drive, multimedia card reader, and $50 separate the two systems. They're both built around the same Intel 945GC-based motherboard, and...

Nice price. Multimedia card reader. Dual-layer DVD burner

Somewhat slow. Vista Basic installed. Ball mouse. Lots of preloaded bloatware and trialware

The games that come with it have viruses. Breaks very fast. Costs a lot of money. Doesn't have built in wifi. Has hardrive viruses.

this is the world's slowest computer ”


This computer has been slow from day one.  I know if wasn't the best at the time I bought it but it gets slower by the day.  Plus it only came with Vista basic which means you can't do anything in word, etc.
