eMachines started out as TriGem a Tiawanese mother board maker. They began producing very low cost cheep desktop computers. The quality sucked. Eventually Trigem went under and the eMachines brand was bought by an American company.
They have been running things ever since, improving quality and service. They have been very good at keeping costs down and making a profit and is a major turn-around from what the old eMachines was. Because of this they have been bought out by Gateway who has been trying to recover after having it's but kicked by Dell over the years.
While Gateway was company who bought eMachines out, the eMachines CEO will be heading up both companies, to it's really, eMachines taking over Gateway.
In short, eMachines is diffrent from what it was years ago and is continuing to improve. They are selling quality products as these boards and independent reviewers have attested to.
Hope that helps.
