The graphics card, screen, and customer support superceeded my expectations, no questions! As mentioned under the screen section, I had to return this unit in the first week for a warped, bowing out LCD bezel near the right side LCD hinge. However, the LCD is of good quality, with only 1 dead pixel in the corner. At all other times, the processor is quick, and I find wait times are minimized. There are, however, CD buttons embedded in the F row keys that can be used in conjunction with the Fn key. The keyboard on this unit has keys that are light and easy to touch, providing a minimal clicking noise when touched.

When I first received the notebook I was very disappointed by the performance of the graphics processor, but once upgrading to 1 gig any and all problems went away, no more frame rate problems, better resolution and clarity, and more vivid colors and processing. Thus, when the time came to upgrade to a faster, more mobile PC with better gaming options, I looked around at many brands, like the Dell B loadedbut for the price, it did not compare to the eMachines W Where and How Purchased: Historically, eMachines laptops have been made by Arima, and this unit is no exception, as enachine is stamped on the bottom of the unit Arima MUK8X http: Stick Pro, Multimedia Card 6-cell battery pack standard Software: I know that Gateway offers an extended life battery for the sister model they offer same case design as eMachines unit on their site Check for the M extended life 9-cell battery here Operating System and Software: At all other times, the processor is quick, and I find wait times are minimized.
In terms of sturdiness, I would not rate it very high for the following reasons. I know that Gateway offers an extended life battery for the sister model they offer same case design as eMachines emachinee on their site Check for the M extended life 9-cell battery here. The design of this notebook is d4605, light, and fairly square.
I do not see ripples when moving the LCD panel back and forth or pushing on the back of the unit. This IS typical of eMachines customer support, and I believe it is the chief reason they have received customer support awards recently.
I found Bug Fix, a program created by eMachines, to be very good at finding updates for all my installed software, and w4650 my particular notebook. Both can be run at the highest possible resolution without problems.
It was returned within days and I have been a happy camper since. The signal does not drop off, ever, and it has been very quick in usage, picking up signals, and connecting to signals.

Below are the results gained from running Super Pi ftp: There are some signs of light leak around the lower corner, only at certain times, such as when the windows XP screen saver is on. I have no complaints regarding this notebook, though I feel it should be shipped standard with one gig of memory even for a standard user or it tends to lag.
I did have an issue my first week with the bezel around the LCD screen warping in the emachiine right corner, by the hinge, and sent it back to eMachines. The graphics card, screen, and customer support superceeded my expectations, no questions!
I would recommend external speakers, because I prefer high sound quality, but certainly, these are louder than expected and good for most users.

I was told I emahine get a replacement screen when I sent it in for a new LCD bezel warpedbut it emachinr with a note stating that it did not meet requirements. I did have a couple overheating issues with that PC, and eMachines went out of their way to fix it, even out of warranty. Visit our network of sites: It is typically black and is hardly noticeable.
Nevertheless, this is a thin and light budget performance notebook, and for someone looking for a desktop replacement that will do it all at a budget, I recommend this computer. I have found that calling customer support gets you to less competent support, and recommend you exclusively call technical support! The laptop will occasionally lag after playing short video clips, even when the processor is not in speed step mode.
