eMachines releases trio of white and green desktops

by Reads (3,121)

The three models launched include the ET1300-02, ET1810-01 and ET1810-03 desktops.  All three minitowers share similar glossy white externals paired with green LEDs.  The new designs are part of eMachines’ push to give their product lines a fresh new look.

The new desktops are actually pretty sleek looking and offer a pretty welcome respite from typical budget desktops, which lately have stuck to boring grey plastic exteriors.  All three systems use NVIDIA graphics, with the higher end ET1300-02 system using the discrete OEM-only NVIDIA G 100 (seen below) with 512MB of GDDR2 memory; the other two systems take advantage of NVIDIA’s integrated GeForce 7050 graphics subsystems.

The matching white monitor eMachines also introduced is bundled in with the the ET1300-02, while buyers of the other systems can acquire it separately if necessary at $130.

The highest end of the three new desktops was the eMachines ET1300-02:
