eMachines T5048


With a CRT monitor and a single-core processor that appeared in the fastest, high-end PCs just a couple of years ago, the T5048 feels like a throwback system. Now, this machine--with its 3.06-GHz Pentium 4 CPU and 512MB of memory--costs just $600 (as...

Reasonable performance for the price

CRT monitor produces lackluster images

Inexpensive system contains low-end components that delivered lackluster performance.

Our "TopTenREVIEWS Silver Award" winner is perfect for basic computing, like perusing the Internet, archiving family photos and managing your personal finances. The eMachine T5048 starts out at under $400 yet is equipped to manage your images and music.

This is an affordable and functional system; it can perform basic functions like accessing the Internet, checking email and running simple programs easily. It also has the hardware to burn DVDs and upload digital photos. It would be a good computer...

Owner of this pc for 5 years - still running great!


Emachines are good. No issues. Been using Emachines for 10 years.

Great PC. P4 processor not bad at all. You can upgrade it if you want. Comes with "Quick Restore" cd - a must for all PC users. Ive had to use the "restore" disk 4 times in 5 years because I downloaded one of those fake virus "you have a viruse" crap

Graphics processor is slow - dont expect to play Crysis / Far Cry etc... But works great on 2d games. Also, It wont play youtube 720p or 1080p vids (very choppy like a slide show). You can upgrade the graphics card if you want
