Thanks, is there any reviews on this?
#2
Not for me, eMachines are about as poor as brands ever get, & it is a very low powered machine, but if you only want to type and browse the web, it will do that.

Wait until Monday for an extra 2.5% off.

Serious I know its not much, but for a site that is supposedly about saving money, why is anyone buying anything over £100 this week? Wait til monday! :D

All due respect but all computers are mass produced and a hell of a lot of them are identical coming from the same factories with different caseings.

My first ever PC was an eMachines and although old and I now only use it to download on I've NEVER had a single problem.

There isn't a single piece of technology out there designed to last longer than a year. Never get big headed about the make of a computer because if we are all totally truthful, unless you make tham you don't have a clue what you are talking about (me included).

:santa: Merry Christmas :santa:

Personally I would never touch emachine, of course this is persoanal opinion and i am sure some people have had good experience with them but after working in a "technical" call centre during my gap year from uni i know that i use to book in a lot of emachines compters.

Also you point about technology is not designed last longer than a year is also completly wrong becusae if they didn't a lot of companies would be going out of business due to the amount of money they would have to give back to there customers. The sales of good act states that an item must last for reasonable amount of time and although that time is not specified a year is certainly not resonable. If you actually search a few consumer forums you would see that plenty of people have manage to get some of their money back on computers that have failed way after there first year warranty has run out simply buy threating legal action to the company they purchased the machine from as the company themselfs know they would lose more money by fighting a case they would not win. Problem is most people do not know there rights and just go out and buy a new one when it breaks

I believe that eMachines was taken over by Acer - this may or may not be of reassurance.

99p cheaper than on Amazon

i would be less worried about the name on the front of it, but more about the names on the bits inside it.... e-machines i'm sure only bolt it together (like many brands these days)

LMAO :-D

Sorry a 'Technical' call centre was it?

Oh okay, yes everyone knows how much help we get from call centres and how interested and hard working you all are that work there.

But seriously, it was a 'Technecial' one, yes so respect where it is due.

Why didn't anyone else let us know Bill Gates uses HUKD? I never knew! :thumbsup:

Does anyone want to sum up for me what his post was about? I got to 'Tecnical' call centre and hit reply instantly, sorry but I wasn't letting that one go!! :lol::giggle::lol:

That's the point I was trying to make. I was bought mine 6 years ago but since moved on, and in the 6 years it has NEVER failed.

Nice to see everyone is so fond of editing quotes so they read what you want.

There's no humor in here anymore

Just becuase i worked in a call centre during my gap year from uni does that mean that my advice is invalid? Nope, surely if anything it makes it more valid as i actually have first had experience of what machinces break down with what problems most ofter.

Also I generally think my advice is better than your as you pointed out in earlier post that you did not have a clue what you were talking about and the last time I checked I had a degree in computer science, I know how the internal working of computers work and have programmed them in assembly code, I have experience programing in around 8 different languages, I have built live projects currently being used by real customers, I can build pcs and repair them, i am experience in hardware failure diagnostics and my first pc i owned was an IBM 486 with windows 3.1 on it therefore i am thinking i have probably been using computers longer than you. So from my experience i like to think my opinion is actually a trueful and valid one while yours is based on "unless you make tham you don't have a clue what you are talking about (me included)"

I hope you realise how patronising you sound. Do you genuinely believe that 486s are old? Dunno bout the other guys here, but it sounds like I was using computers before you were actually born.:whistling:

ahah, yep thats number 3. What does he mean by "make them" lol. If he means build them, I'm sure there plenty that do - its not exactly difficult. If he means solder the components by hand.. then hes a muppet! :)

Yeah you probably were using computers before i was born becuase i am not that old (windows 3.1 came out when i was 7) trust me i know and have worked with plenty of people that have used computers before i was born and i have worked with people that were far better than me. The point of my post was ciaran4174 clearly knows far less about computer systems then I do and for him to discredit my opinion becuase i worked in a call centre during a gap year i took from uni is a completely stupid thing to do.

The comment was meant to be patronising towards ciaran4174 not to any of the other members of this messege board as I know there are plenty that have more qualification, know more about computer systems and have around longer than me but he is not one of them

You need to stop posting. You are embarrassing yourself with a complete lack of any IT knowledge whatsoever. Do you even know what a '486' is?

Okay fair enough, even though this is my string I will humbly bow out and not post again, but on parting may I say I have no idea what a '486' is as I have NEVER posted anything about one. I have no idea where that came from it wasn't me.

I saw a cheap Laptop and posted it as a cheap Laptop. Is that not what HUKD is for? I never said I knew anything about them, in fact I did say I DIDN'T know anything about them.

Time for us to bow out I guess... its been fun though.

I'm wondering if "Everything was MEANT to be tongue in cheek to get a rise" should be reported ;) hehe.
