Acer tends to pull out the eMachines brand name when it’s got a cheap product to sell. And the eMachines eM350 is no exception. While the cheapest Acer Aspire One netbook with an Intel Atom N450 processor has a list price of about $300, the eMachines eM350 goes for $280.
Sure, $20 might not seem like a big difference, but when you’re talking about dirt cheap computers, every little bit counts.
There is a slight catch though. Kind of. Most recently launched Acer netbooks ship with Windows 7 Starter Edition. The eMachines eM350 ships with Windows XP. Some folks might consider that an upgrade though.
Rounding out the specs are 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 10/100Mbps Ethernet, 2 USB ports, and a 10 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display. The computer measures 10.2″ x 7.3″ x 1″ and weighs 2.4 pounds. it has a 3 cell, 2200mAh battery.
