eMachines July 2008

Gateway's budget label eMachines today served up three new desktops that it says ought to appeal to students heading back to school in two months' time. The W3653 is the most complete system of the group with the company's 17-inch, 1440x900 bundled with the tower; the system also packs a relatively new 1.6GHz Celeron Dual-Core processor, 1GB of memory, and Vista Home Premium stored on a 320GB hard drive. The system sells for $500 at retail shops.

The next step down, eMachines' T5274, drops the monitor but is faster with a 2GHz Pentium Dual-Core as well as 2GB of memory and the same 320GB of hard drive space. It too ships with Vista Home Premium and is officially priced at $400.

At the base level, the T3656 runs just a single-core 2GHz Celeron, 1GB of memory, and Vista Home Basic along with a 160GB hard drive. Cost is the computer's primary selling point with the system available in shops today for $300.

eMachines continues to sell its own-brand LCDs for desktops coming without their own screens, with the 17-inch LCD of the W3653 available individually for $189 while a 19-inch screen at the same resolution for $210.
