Gateway Acer Emachines - New Emachine Offerings Best Ever in Price / Quality
EL1358G-51W - Compliment
IRVING, CALIFORNIA -- I read more negative than positive about Emachines....they don't know what they are talking about. I am a 25 year hardware/ programming veteran. These new small footprint unit are the bomb. They are as "heavy" (weightwise) as Emachine earlier version mini towers, meaning they are as good. The price $298. is unbeatable. The only downside is that they are PUSHING Norton antivirus (I don't know anyone that uses Norton. There are screens that come up that want you to buy Norton with a small "close" button at the bottom of the window if you don't. They continue coming up even though you have said No over and over again until finally a screen comes up that doesn't have the option to close and you must RESTART the computer to get rid of it.
This would not normally be a problem for the computer should have been configured before you the home owner used it by a technician at a store somewhere. Well....lo and behold.....for all you technicians out there.....these machines are being sent out with WINDOWS INSTALLER disabled
