Well this computer was purchased in 2006, all in all its not that bad the computer was on the very low end side I did not purchase it though my mom did and I bought it from her for 50 bucks but the price she paid for it was almost 300 I found this ridiculous why this low end machine cost close to as much a medium - high end gaming computer cost well over the years I have slowly upgraded it now it has a dual core cpu @ 3.0GHz 2GB RAM geforce 9400gt 1gb graphics card and a new case all thats left is the heatsink fan and motherboard which still limit this computer greatly... the onboard chipset was a ati xpress 200 series which ati does not support the drivers for anymore, the cpu fan is very low end and extremly loud any process you put on the cpu this thing goes off like a helicopter, however for being almost 4 years old the motherboard is still in great shape, (the d101ggc as intel refers to it) this has been my learning computer and it has tought me a lot though.. I would never buy an eMachine again nor any other retail computer.1 Replies - Latest reply on 02/21/2010Add reply
