It Just Makes Sense


It was either replace a power supply and hard drive on an older P4, or buy this machine. Since I have a Netbook based on the Atom, I knew what this machine could do. Since it was roughly $100 less than my Netbook and it included a DVD burner, I figured...

Price versus performance with a new computer under warranty. Quiet and efficient. Does what I use a computer for. Fast enough. Capable enough. GMA 950 video and high definition audio ice the cake

No Wi-Fi or memory card reader built in, but that is a minor annoyance easily fixed with inexpensive USB products. No distribution disk for Windows XP, all documentation is on the hard drive. It comes with a modem in one of the expansion slots. I don't...

Awsome little thing


Great alternative for people who hate Vista or have been shocked over hearing horror stories. (i.e.: Elderly)

Small form factor, decent power, quiet. Perfect for internet with plenty of RAM (for XP that is) and HDD storage

Can't really upgrade. Whatever upgrades you would consider would almost be pointless

works great for downloading torrents 24/7 after I slapped a 2 gigs of ram and a roomy 2tb hard disk inside it...hopefully I will see a reduction in my electric bill as I can now turn off my main pc

looks nice and sleek I love the green led ; very quiet ; runs vista 64 ; the bios lets you do some advanced stuff unlike most emachines ; easy to upgrade memory, and hard disk

it would be better if it came with 2gigs of ram, and a larger hard disk

Got this for my mother as a gift. Small in size but looks big enough to upgrade. Has some decent simple designs and a couple spots for air flow. Loaded up quick and works great. Having the keyboard and mouse and all the cables makes set up easier ; The...

Does not come with a window disk or driver/utility disk

LiteOn Slim External DVD


i purchased this drive for work when I realized the slot-load burner drive in the new Acer VL-460 would not accommodate mini or business card disks. I use the minis extensively for storing and/or distributing driver files and small amounts of data. I...

Just doing some billing , Email and websurfing on this machine is works perfect. Right out of the box it was an easy setup process. This one is replacing a 3 year old desktop and so far is working much faster. Quiet, Easy to use, fast, not much to...
