Another reason why not to choose emachines

They can't substract.

The original link was at

mail-in rebate -$50.00

Heh, is the value really worth knowing that they may tweak the clock speed of there athlon's to be less than normal?

edit: they changed it already, delete post if you wish

the t2824 is such crap.

i bought a t2825 and its leaps and bounds beyond this POS.

however, when i got it, my 2800 was running at 2200 speeds. turns out the idiots at emachines central put the FSB jumper in the wrong way
