eMachines

(eMachines, Inc., Irvine, CA, www.emachines.com) A manufacturer of PCs founded in 1998 and backed by Korean PC manufacturer TriGem Computer, monitor maker Korea Data Systems and other investors. eMachines targeted the consumer market with its first models in the sub-USD $500 range. It subsequently introduced the eOne, an all-in-one Windows PC with an Internet keyboard that looked like Apple's popular iMac. In 2004, eMachines was acquired by Gateway. From inception until it became part of Gateway, eMachines shipped five million PCs.


A PC or Mac?
You did a double take with the eOne, because it looked just like the iMac. Its advantage, of course, was compactness with the entire system in the monitor cabinet. (Image courtesy of eMachines, Inc.)
