eMachines White Desktops

eMachines today gave a new look to its least expensive ET series desktops along with hardware upgrades to match. Like the recent EL1300 slimline PC, the ET1300 and ET1810 shed the company's previous black-and-silver look for a sleeker, glossy white. They all also make NVIDIA's lower-end graphics standard for slightly faster than usual performance in the category.

The AMD-based ET1300 is the high-end system in the introduction and comes with a 2.5GHz Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor, a GeForce G100 with 512MB of memory, 3GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. It also comes paired with a new 18.5-inch display, the E182H, which produces a 1366x768 resolution and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio with input through VGA. The whole system sells for $450 while the display alone sells for $130.

Two ET1810 models occupy the very beginning of the line and are both Intel-based. The ET1810-01 at $300 starts with a single-core 1.6GHz Celeron, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and GeForce 7050 integrated video all running on Windows Vista Home Basic. An -02 variant at $370 ups the processor to a 2.2GHz Pentium dual-core, boosts RAM to 3GB and doubles the hard drive space while also using Vista Home Premium.

All three systems and the display should be available at retail shops.
