First, eMachines makes great basic computers. I had one for years and my Father still owns one. I have had no complaints other than its basic.
The real question here is should you buy a refurbished product. I say NO! Not in computers that is.
Unfortunatly, the tech's who refurbish the product doesn't make much money and quality becomes an issue.
No offense to anyone who is a tech, but you know what I mean. I would buy an open box, display, or even used before I buy a refurbished computer (used is a stretch).
It's luck of the draw when it comes to bying a refurbished product. Sorry, I know thats not what you wanted to hear.
