eMachines PCs and LCDs

Gateway's basic brand eMachines on Thursday launched a trio of faster basic PCs and more easily accessible LCDs. The computers all share an improved baseline with 120GB hard drives, DVD burners, and faster processors. Starting the line is the entry-level T3612, which steps up from a 3.33GHz Celeron D to 3.46GHz while sporting 512MB of RAM and Vista Home Basic; the T5088 jumps from 3GHz to 3.2GHz with its single-core Pentium 4 and improves storage using a 160GB hard drive and a 15-in-1 card reader. The range-leading T5226 sees a similar CPU increase to a dual-core 3.2GHz Pentium 4 with the 1GB of RAM needed to handle Vista Home Premium and a 250GB hard drive.

All three PCs will reach stores by the weekend at prices of $350, $400, and $500 respectively. eMachines didn't provide specific details of its new LCD line but said it would consist of 17- and 19-inch (1440x900) widescreens that would sell for $180 and $210 after a $50 rebate, dropping the prices on the respective existing models by $10 and $40.
