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.
