I've gone through a Compaq, a Medion, two custom machines (back in the dark ages where there wasn't as big of a market for computers as there is today) a Gateway and two eMachines. While I like the Gateway and the Medion, eMachines is my personal favorite of them all. When Gateway bought eMachines, I was worried about the quality, but I worried needlessly, as the Gateway desktop I use occasionally is a very nice machine. For the money, eMachines is the best buy out there that actually can be a decent machine. Best Buy sells the lowest end machines for around $300, and they need minimal work to be a very nice machine. I'm using a T2792 from 2004, and I've had minimal problems, and none with the 3300+ machine purchased a few months ago.
I will never use another HP/Compaq computer unless it is the business grade, as the quality of them is so poor with consumer grade products. And, since I'd be paying extra for the business grade computer, why not just save the money and get a eMachines?
Dell, oh, how I loathe Dell. I don't know how they can market such underpowered machines to the public, I can't use an overpriced, underpowered machine, and that carries over to the higher grade systems that they do carry. It just doesn't seem right to support a company that sells such crappy machines to the general (non geeky) public.
Okay, yeah. I'm a bit of an eMachines fangirl, but who doesn't love high quality products that are inexpensive enough to replace a machine every year?
