    I know their desktops suck donkey nuts, but are improving a lot, but has anybody heard or had any experiences with e-Machines laptops?

    My friend has an E-machines widescreen laptop. He loves it. He is a computer freak also.

    Yeah, it looks pretty awesome, and it's pretty damn cheap for what you get.

    The only thing is, it's an e-machines...:sad2:

    My brother's looking into getting a laptop, so I'm helping him find one. This one's looking good and everything, but don't trust the brand still...

    My desktop is currently being repaired.My husband said he read up on them before we bought it and they looked ok. That was 6 mos ago and we just relpaced the hard drive and when that didn't work they had us send it in for a new mother board.

    the specs look decent, but the video sucks. Don't expect to play any games on it

    I don't know specifically, but if the desktops are that bad, how much can you trust the laptops?

    For one, e-machines is improving a lot on their newer stuff, and as for laptops, lots of companies outsource to get their systems built

    Who plays games on their laptops anyway? At most, it'll be used to view DVDs, but no games (besides maybe solitaire and minesweeper) will be played on it whatsoever.

    Bestbuy has got some damn good deals on laptops right now if you are willing to put up with their bullshit and don't ever plan on dealing with their customer service dept.

    Those laptops were on Tigerdirect for $999 last week.



    If you get one wait until after X-mas, you'll probably be able to pick one up for $800 or so.



    I wouldn't trust it :dunno: but then again for what it is it's a pretty sweet deal.

    The cool thing about E-machines is they don't require any specialized hardware certs to work on them, so if you do have a problem you can get the company to RMA you some parts then just find anyone w/ an A+ cert to install them.. no warranty problems.
