eMachines Introduces Powerful Mini Desktop PC under 300$

eMachines Introduces Powerful Mini Desktop PC

Weighing in at just one-third the size of a traditional PC, the new super compact eMachines EL1200 Desktop Series PCs pack as much computing power as most mainstream full size towers, without taking up limited desk space or much out of consumers’ wallets. Starting at less than $300, the EL1200 Series is an extreme value that’s sure to surprise and please many a shopper this holiday season.

The budget-friendly eMachines EL1200 is powerful enough for homework assignments or managing household finance programs, offering everything consumers need to get online, check email and Watch YouTube videos from any room in the house.


Small and light enough to fit on a shelf, book case or counter with ease, eMachines’ new small form factor desktop means consumers can now have a PC just about anywhere in the home.

“The extreme value of the eMachines EL 1200 is undeniable,” said Glenn Jystad, senior manager, desktop products. “The ability to purchase a powerful, well-equipped PC for less than $300 is sure to be a welcome option for consumers tightening their budgets in today’s tough economic climate.


Sleek Multimedia and Entertainment Center

Top-notch performance combined with digital media features make the EL1200 a powerful little dynamo. Featuring 64-bit AMD Athlon processing power, 1GB or 2GB of memory and rich NVIDIA GeForce graphics, the EL1200 provides the performance to tackle everyday tasks and more.

Popular multimedia activities, such as creating digital photo albums, uploading videos, and burning personalized music or photo disks are handled with ease. Even connecting to an HDTV is easy via its standard HDMI port, and high-quality audio is delivered with the included set of amplified stereo speakers.

Its sleek design includes a flip down door that hides the optical disk drive, keeping it free from dust and debris. The 14-in-one media reader provides fast transfer of videos, photos, and music, and seven USB ports provide quick connections to printers and other consumer electronics.

Roomy hard drives provide ample space for storing digital photo, video and music libraries. And for quick backups or additional storage, a built-in eSATA port provides a fast connection to external drives.


Smaller Design is Environmentally Responsible

Available with an innovative low-power 15 watt CPU, the energy efficient EL1200 uses less energy than a standard desktop PC. Its low power consumption also helps prolong component life and service costs.

In addition, its smaller size means less metal and plastic will have to be recycled. Its cardboard box is about 60 percent smaller than the one used for eMachines’ smallest tower PC, further reducing landfill waste.
