To be honest, even though the personal impressions where so-so, we must admit that eMachines E510 worked with no problems. It seems that many eMachines will find their place with no pomp and publicity away from public eyes doing their job quietly and reliably. For buyers that count every dime, and don’t seek high performances, we only have two words for them – eMachines E510.

It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.
Single core processor based on the Merom core but with reduced features (like the missing Speedstep).
