eMachines are crap to begin with so if it crapped out it just lived up to it's potential

When I was shopping around for my first PC, I eschewed eMachines because of their poor reputation. I decided on Gateway because of their stellar reputation and that they had their own stores with their own service personnel who should be more competent than generic ones plus they had a store that was close to where I lived. A year or so after I bought the machine, *&^%$#@! Gateway closed all their stores and merged with eMachines.

My Gateway laptop crappy M-series is still alive and kicking
It also has mediocre spec's but bought 1-2 months before my Acer so it's also kicking at 6 y.o.
Bought from the same site

I got seven years of service from my old Gateway. I only retired it mostly because I had outgrown it.

Careful! SSDs are habit forming! I will not own a machine that doesn't have one anymore.
