Believe it or not, the machine you see pictured here really is an
. It wasn't that long ago that eMachines was a name synonymous
with lackluster, but no more; the company is refreshing its brand and
producing far more stylish machines than before, with its latest
all-in-one PC looking nearly as good as Apple's iconic iMac.
Boasting a thin, sleek design that should spruce up most any pressboard
computer desk, the newest member of the EZ series is labeled the
EZ1601-01 and is available only in a Diamond Black hue that's accented
with green LED lighting and silver trim. As eMachines puts it, this rig
really does look a lot like a giant digital photo frame, and the
matching keyboard and mouse acts as the cherry on top.
Specs wise, you'll find an 18.5" LCD, built-in Wi-Fi, Windows XP, a
1366x768 resolution, integrated speakers, a multi-media card reader,
double-layer Super Multi DVD burner and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU.
The machine should be sneaking into stores soon for $399.99, and if
you're turned on by the design, have a look at the full build list
below to see if it fits your needs in the hardware department.
