T1400

  • eMachines
  • (800) 362-2446
  • www.emachines.com
  • Street price: $599 (after $75 rebate without monitor)

So much power for so little--eMachines' T1400 with AMD's new Athlon XP 1600+ CPU delivers the processing power of a 1.8GHz Pentium 4 for less than $600 (sans monitor). Also included are 256MB SDRAM, a 40GB hard drive and a CD-RW drive. It's such an inexpensive way to refresh employee desktops, you may be able to upgrade your monitors with LCDs, too. If you want all your old software and peripherals to run, though, replace Windows XP Home on the T1400 with another OS. EMachines says it won't void your hardware warranty.
