eMachines EZ1601 01 is a $399 Nettop

EZ stands for “easy”, which is the trendy word used with low-cost computers these days. With a price tag of $399, you can expect to find the same hardware that is already used in countless Intel Atom powered PCs: 1.6Ghz Atom, Windows XP Home, 1GB of RAM, 160GB HDD, DVD writer, WIFI+Ethernet, 5xUSB.

The 18.5″ monitor (1366×768) that also contains the computer is what sets it apart from stand-alone “Atom boxes”. 1GB is not enough memory for a comfortable use, and we would recommend at least using 2GB. Memory is so cheap these days, PC makers should raise the price by $10 and provide a better user experience.
