My kid had an e-Machine, and it ran flawlessly. Upgrading, tho, sucked!! There'* next to no extra room in those things. Never knew they were owned by Dell, but looking back, I don't doubt it for a second. Dell'* suck for upgrades too! But, if you're as good as I am...false blushing

heh, I don't know about Emachines now, but the older ones are notorious for power supplies going out on them. To add insult to injury, the PS is proprietary, so you'll

a.) Have a hell of a time finding one that fits your case

b.) Buy a new case and PS, and migrate all your current parts... if they're compatible with the case. Usually there'* a standard for this, but no guarantees that Emachines or any big computer company will make computers that comply.

My uncle'* Celeron 533mhz Emachines has a PS that'* starting to go out. You'll be using it and bam, it shuts down or restarts

the only really propietary things in dells (atleast mine) is the PS and the mobo PS hookup. Everything else is off the shelf hookups, upgrading is easy.....
