PC Magazine has a hands-on review (“emachines eOne — PC Magazine First Looks“) of the emachines eOne, which is more or less an iMac clone.
The iMac clone (in hardware only) comes with several improvements over Apple’s all-in-one system–and also carries a lower price.
Regardless of whether it’s an imitation of the Apple iMac, emachines’ latest low-cost desktop is a welcome addition to the sub-$1,000 PC market. Though priced from $400 to $800 after rebates, the emachines eOne includes up-market I/O hardware and is far easier to set up and use than almost any other Windows 98 PC. A caveat: Free technical support is limited to 15 days.
