    Hi Gang;

    Thinking about upgrading to newer operating systems's.

    We use old (his and her's)laptop's now.

    Saw the emachines M5312,and it looked like a pretty good deal for what you got (widescreen display/wireless G/Athelon.

    Salesperson said emachines have reliability issues-anyone have first hand knowledge???

    Thanks

    I don't know about the laptops, but I know that the desktops have a lot of problems and that their customer service is horrible. I can't imagine that their laptops would be any better; in fact, I would wager that they would be worse.

    Buy a sony or a dell or an apple or something.

    Too Late!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just picked up a great Notebook (M5312),and ran into antoher buyer,and she said she had two,and loved them.

    It's a risky gamble,but the setup was easy,and I was able to get on my wireless internet system with ease (5 mins).

    So far i'm impessed with this baby-time will tell though (finger's crossed).

    I have had my eMachine Desktop for a year now and have not had one problem. It works great for anything, unless something went horrubly wrong with their laptops, I would say theyre worth it.

    Thanks Deepak [​IMG]

    So far it's working way better than my older HP.

    Picked up a second one for my wife,and we got the service plan for hers-mine i'm going to gamble without it-yikes.

    Regards

    Hope you never have to call tech support.

    Pray or rub cheetah blood on it, or something.

    Can't be any worse than the tech support HP is using.

    Guess it's a sign of the times-

    They're all contracting support calls overseas.
