  1. If you've ever wanted a PC packaged in a floating black diamond, eMachines has brought that fantasy to reality today with the launch of its new Mini-e ER1402 nettop. The company says its glossy black diamond-shaped chassis "floats" in a matte silver pedestal – not exactly the work of science fiction, but cool nonetheless.

    E machines are the only computers I tell people to stay away from. All companies have manufacturing defects at some point but Emachines are just terrible.

    why do they even put a 64-bit OS on this thing when it won't even utilize it?...

    We share seefizzle's opinion... Only the Packard Bell is a less reliable computer than the average eMachines... I cannot believe the eMachines intros Athlon II Neo-based 'floating' nettop would work any better or last any longer.
    Do they still offer only a one year warranty, and no tech support?

    Why would you even want a 32bit OS?
  6. If it sold without the OS, Kboard and, mouse for $150 then It would begin to look interesting.

    I for one have had an eMachine for over 4 years without any issues. It's mainly the kids computer now, but it works and has taken the abuse.

  7. This is an Acer built unit...eMachines was bought by Gateway in '04 and Acer bought Gateway about 3 years a go..
