    they have built in advertising

    like..the buttons on the keyboard that go to websites cant be changed

    that's how they get the computers so cheap... companies pay for having their link in the keyboard

    What makes Emachines crap? Is it their build quality or the parts used??

    For a cheap computer it's fine. If you aren't a dumbass you will never have a problem. Nothing wrong with the parts either.

    if you dont expect alot out of it, they are fine, dont think you will be able to play the latest greatest games, basically you can do office crap and surf the web, they work and they are good enough
