I have this product in the black. I have had mine since March. I had a virus get in the computer but that was because I downloaded something and did not have a virus program on computer. I had called Tech support which was very helpful. They did land up crashing my computer trying to fix it. They sent me within 5 days all the necessary CD's with the software on it that I needed to get my computer back up. I have since loaded my computer and installed a virus program on here. I have not had any problems since then. It works great. I have lots of games installed and works wonderful for my school work. I would recommend this computer for anyone that does not do any major gaming sites.
I don't know why the sellers ask for reviews so early after the purchase. The real story is in the shelf life of a product. I have no complaints but one, the sleeve that opens to insert a cd, dvd is very flimsy. I worry that it will not last long. The computer itself is awesome. It is easy to assemble. There is a disc included that is not for system reload but it installs a file in pdf. I guess the re-loading of operating system is included in the files but I honestly have not looked into that yet. The computer tower is way smaller than the usual desktops, very nifty looking. I would reccomend this product, I hope it lasts longer than the older model e-machines. I wanted a Dell but someone bought this for me as a present. Sorry e-machine folks but you need to get some longevity built into your machines. I have had two e-machines, they seem to last about 4 -5 yrs. This is the 3rd e-machine, so we will see.
Nice computer works well. Love the 20" widescreen monitor with built in speakers. Keyboard has a nice design. System unit compact and light weight , but still has plenty of power. 1 GB RAM 160 GB Hard drive. ONLY bad point , its packaged with an old school Track-ball mouse. Planning to upgrade to optical mouse shortly. Nice job on the price, Walmart. A good computer for around $400!!
Have a model 1200 bought from WalMart in the last very few days of the GWB Administration as I needed an XP based machine in January, 2009. The 1300 appears to be the same machine "in white."
My experience is the following:
1. OK Machine as it is.
2. Better Machine with 2 Gb Memory as the CPU is slightly slow - Did the Upgrade, a screwdriver job if you know what you are doing.
3. Runs LIKE A TRAIN.
4. Made it DUAL BOOT - it runs Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux - YOUR CHOICE at BootUp.
5. The Extra Gb costs about $15 + shipping and Tax - or - about $30 + shipping and tax for a matched pair - 4 Gb as a matched pair costs about $50 plus shipping and tax - Overkill - as the system will only see about 3 Gb with its 32 bit O/S.
6. Have replaced our old DELL with a burnt out motherboard with this. DELL had a higher clock speed on the CPU - a Pentium 4 - @2.3 Ghz with 512 Mhz Memory. The 1.6 AMD Athlon with more RAM seems to be about equal in the REAL WORLD.
For $298 without screen or $398 with Screen - it works - WELL and HAS worked for me for the last 6 Months.
Who could ask for anything more for $398? - WITH a MONITOR! -S-
Delivered as promised.
Easy to assemble.
This is the 2nd Emachine I've bought from you to
replace 2 Dell units. My daughter is enjoying the
other. I've always had good service with Walmart
Ok first of all I bought two of these computers from walmart.com as our local store did not have any of these in stock.One of the computers I bought is a gift for a family member .
I had these computers delivered to my house instead of the store.
I was HIGHLY disapointed in the way the computers was delivered to me.
These computers only came in the package that they came in from the store. THEY DID NOT arrive in a ups box at all. I do NOT like that a bit as all it takes is someone looking on my front porch and they can clearly see what I have bought .
Over ALL luckly I was home when they arrived to prevent any one from seeing these computers sitting on my porch PLEASE package these computers with better care so no one has to feel like they have to be home when they arrive.
The computer its self is pretty good. I do not notice the slowness at all on it like others have complained about as I have my internet through the cable company and it is pretty fast loging on them. If you have dsl, or interenet through the cable company no need in buying more memory unless you just want to .
I would recommend these computers to anyone as the price for them are a great value. Plus the regular 20 inch monitors sold seperetely are around 200 to 240 dollars so your comming out to the good getting this machine, BUT I do NOT recommend getting them delivered to your home as they only come delivered to your doorstep in the emachine packaging.
I bought this computer in january. It does not hold much on it, and its very slow. I have nothing downloaded on it, and no pictures or anything yet. Its just horrible
Had to return 3 of these in as many days. It would not accept cds, which I needed to run my embroidery machine.
I bought one that was in black and i have only had it for 1 month to be dead honest! I got a virus on my computer in just that little time! I was not able to get into my e-machines recovery mangement center and it took me an 1hour to talk to sombebody and they could'nt even speak english that well! Im just basing my opinion on my experience, but i was very unhappy with the results in this computer might as well just bought a dell for the same price!
Great computer, easy to set up. Have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I am extremely pleased with it. Would recommend it to anyone.
I have had many computers in the last 10 years and this one by far is one of ther best. Very cheap and seems to be a great one. I was completely surprised after I bought it 5 stars
I have had this product for a couple of months now and I love it. I purchased mine from the store and paid 298.00 for it so even better than on here, but the product is wonderful. I am an online student so I have a lot of different programs plus a few games loaded on here and it is still running fast. I would absolutely recommend this to someone.
20" screen, very compact desktop, best price in town. Great unit for school work, small business, or just to get grandma on the www. One of the last units w/XP.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this deal on Wal-Mart.com. This is a great upgrade computer. I bought it to upgrade my 8 year old (512 RAM , 40 gig hard drive) PC. What a refreshing difference. I fell in love with computers again with this fast, efficient e-machine. I bought my wife one last year. It worked so well that I kept my eyes open for one for myself. Then one day I hit the jackpot. The 20' monitor alone was worth the deal, but the whole package for less than $300, couldn't pass that up. Great computer, great price.
This product exceeds expectations. Very compact, but yet allows more than required periphials to be added.
Setup was straightforward. The instructions left out a few steps (like connecting the monitor to its power cord), but nothing critical. System is quite peppy (I opted not to use the trial version of the security software bundled with the machine - the software might have slowed things down). Have had no problems so far. Power management defaults to turning off the hard drive after a certain period of inactivity, so I changed that to suit my own preference. The mouse is trackball, so it will need to be cleaned from time to time. I replaced mine with an optical mouse I already had. The keys on the keyboard are sort of low-profile - I prefer raised keys, which my fingers find easier to tell apart. All in all, though, I think this product is an excellent buy for the money.
Received the computer timely and was able to set up and be on line within two hours. I have dial-up internet access. It did take a day to download the antivirus program. I believe that download time was due to dial-up not the speed of the computer. I have used the computer for two weeks and it meets my needs. Since, I am legally blind, I was able to adjust the size of the fonts quickly to meet my needs. I recommend this computer.
I have owned my computer since march and I am very pleased with it. I have it black. I use it everyday for school without any problems. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a computer.
Had a 17" screen prior & that was perfect. Now with a 20" screen it's great. Had this product hooked up and in force for a week now and find it very very good for a beginner or one who's used computers for years as I have.
In March and April I bought new Emachines from our Wal-Mart stores. I bought one for myself and loved it so much that I bought another one for my husband. We have been so impressed that I talked my sister into buying one today at her local Wal-Mart store. I also have a friend that is looking to buy one and I am very definitely recommending this computer. It is such a great buy for the money. I didn't mention the monitors, they are absolutely beautiful. The picture is so bright and clear. I will keep recommending these computers and Wal-Mart!
