About eMachines Computers

eMachines was a brand of entry level PCs, based in Irvine, California. eMachines employed about 135 employees and sold between 1 to 2 million computers each year before its purchase on January 30, 2004, by rival Gateway Computers. Gateway in turn was acquired by a Taiwanese personal computer manufacturer Acer in October 2007, and eMachines was used as a name brand for low-cost PCs until late 2012.
