First Look: eMachines T5254

1:01 /

The eMachines T5254 costs less than similar systems from Dell and HP, and it outperforms them (in some cases), and uses less power while doing so. You can't configure it before making a purchase, but eMachines has chosen this system's specs wisely, and with a level of environmental consciousness that make it a very enticing deal.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Joseph Kaminski, Lab Tech for CNET.com and today we're looking at the eMachines T5254. As you can see it's a pretty simple looking machine, but what's really great is also simple in price and you got a decent bank for your bought. As you can see the media card reader is on the front, as well as the three USB ports and a DVD CD-RW. On the back you will find the usual suspects as well as 4 USB ports. As you can see, it's pretty clean inside. You'll also notice underneath the cable you will see the fan for the AMD Athlon BE-2350 Processor, as well as a 320 Gig hard drive and also you'll notice there's a little space to grow inside as well. It should be pretty easy to upgrade. If you want a decent performance system for a decent price, that's also good to the environment, this is the machine for you. I'm Joseph Kaminski for CNET.com and we just looked at the eMachines T5254.
