One of the most inexpensive yet unique and satisfactory guaranteed PC unit is the eMachines Mini-e ER 1402-05.

This does not look like an ordinary desktop.
The unique design is just not what’s great about this unit, but also what’s inside of it. The specifications and features of this PC is one of its best traits. At a low price of $299, this PC is far better than those of $400 – 500 units that have the same specifications and features.

The inside specs of this computer are great given the price of $299. But for downloading your songs, video or converting music files to another format, this unit is not the fastest to do the job and even with heavy graphical games, this model is not the best to use. Yes, it can still download songs or movies or play that latest game, but expect them to finish their jobs longer than other units.
When tested with a real world performance testing, it took 7 long minutes and 22 seconds for 11 songs to be converted from MP3 to ACC in iTunes, and with windows media encoder, it took 18 minutes and 39 seconds to convert a standard video.
Though with these results, the computer is still worth buying especially when you are a student because this PC model can still edit videos, play games or download tunes. With the price of $299, the specs, the performance and the outside design, this unit will stand out against the rest.
