I was having trouble with an old computer (single processor with Windows XP that I have had for 8 years) at a remote site and was looking at replacing some parts when I stumbled across this. When I looked at the cost of replacing the parts of the old computer with buying this one, it was no contest. If you add up all the parts for this computer (purchase them separately here on Amazon), it gets close to $600. This is truly an amazing buy and the speed is actually really good. I have an I-7 960 with a solid state drive (that was extremely expensive to buy) on my other computer and even though this doesn't match that one, it doesn't do a bad job of keeping up. Really, this does a decent job at an incredible price. I would recommend this for anyone replacing an older computer.

For this price, this a great for normal light computer uses, like surfing the web, watching a DVD, answering email, playing a low-end video game. If that is all you ever want to do, then the price should convince you to buy this. But what really impresses me is that (compared to my older computer) this can also do the more sophisticated items much faster. Rendering a video, expanding a zip file, dealing with several tasks at the same time, playing a higher end video game. I am rather impressed by the ability of this computer to do what you would expect in a computer twice as much.

Just on a side note, I deleted all those "trial" programs. I had bought Office Home and Student for another computer and it allows 3 installations, so I just used that. I downloaded AVAST, which is a free virus protection program with great ability. I loaded Firefox instead of using Internet Explorer (IE just doesn't have enough features and is too buggy) and Thunderbird as a replacement for Outlook. I also use TeamViewer to connect all my computers instead of PCAnywhere, PCtoGo, or Windows RDP. All those programs are free (CNet), work on Windows 7, and run much faster and bug free.

this is for the eMachines ET1831-07--not the 05, this is a pentium dual core processor.

windows 7 after a short while will prove wonderfully easy to navigate. the thing is, windows 7 is huge. the first thing you do once you get the computer up-and-runnin is create your recovery discs. it will take four dvds: three for the recovery and one for the drivers. then go about deleting the programs you dont need. i always get rid of trial software and i delete norton in favor of kaspersky (unless you can afford a nod program, or mcafee).

this comp is very easy to set up and use and the processor is insanely quick. this isnt a gaming computer, but it is fast and has a lot of drive data, plus the usbs are 2.0. plus, though it reads on the box that the hard drive is a 750g, it is really a terabyte hard drive (odd but very cool), and the processor is not only an intel pentium but is also a dual core. this comp is insane for the price. i picked one up for my mother in law and went to setting it up. liked it so much that i went out and got one for our house.

found it at best buy for $350. that is a steal. im so much happier with it over my old emachines, w3650. this is a much better product, a luck find. get it while you can.

A great product for the money..This is my third E-Machine and always have been satisfied with them...Had some trouble with my first unit (due to some unfortunate mistakes on my part)I completely lost the O.S....The vendor thankfully replaced it...It's fast,runs cool and windows 7 was a quantum leap form XP...some of the hardware is a little "tinny" ie. the rear video plug and the rear expansion bays are difficult to remove...I've had it a month and overall, I'm generally well satisfied

I loved almost everything about this computer (especially the price)....the speed is fantastic and there's lots of memory, etc. It was a huge improvement over my previous computer. But the only two drawbacks are that it doesn't come with a recovery disk (you have to create your own using your own CDs). And when I went to do so, I discovered that there are some problems with the CD/DVD drive. When I went to remove the CD, it would not come out (I got some error message). So I don't know if the CD drive was not installed properly at the factory or what. I'm not very techy, so I have to do a little homework to figure out how resolve that. I'm not going to spend money to take it somewhere to fix a new computer. Other than that everything works well and again the price was unbeatable for what I needed.

I've always been a fan of the underdogs, i had two Acer Desktops from 1998 to around 2009, only TWO. They both stood the test of just over ten years and i would buy them again, but being that they now own Emachines(who used to be pretty junkie) this is what i went for. I think the reason you see less and less actual ACER brand desktops out is because they have there hands full right now. Buying out Gateway and Emachines and also being the inventor of the Netbook they have certainly a full plate no doubt. So even if they concentrate on netbooks/laptops with the Acer logo it doesnt matter because they have created a superb machine in cunjunction with Emachines. I had an Acer i got last year but sold it to my parents because they wanted one, and only had laptops, and i decided to give this one a shot. Well i'm more than pleased, the 4gb of DDR2 RAM feels absolutely no different than the DDR3 i've played around with in other machines. Yes it does have what some would call a dated Dual-Core processor, but let me give you this. My father has an hp and has had nothing but problems, first the key fell off after a month, then the power supply shorted out, and now the screen is slowly fading, and he just got it 1 yes 1 YEAR ago. I just got this and before this got one of the 298$ Emachine laptops at wal-mart with a very similar processor of less speed, lets just say these computers put that laptop to shame. So don't be fooled by the big boys, i have always loved Acers and now that they are buying out these companies i love them just as much. Both this and my laptop run flawlessly, no freezes, no drops on my wireless, super speedy, even great for converting video files quickly and with no slow downs.Read more ›
