This eMachines desktop PC comes with a 60-day trial version of Microsoft Office.
MS Office gives you excel, word, powerpoint, etc. After 60 days of use it will prompt you to purchase the full version. You can also check Walmart for a full version of Microsoft Office. Walmart might have a better price.

The USB Aircard will work, and in all honesty, this computer is overkill for Microsoft Word, Excel , Powerpoint , etc :) But it helps to have more memory in there such as an ideal 2GB of ram which it comes with , because presentations are becoming more higher quality which results in larger file sizes and higher memory requirements to display it.

I believe you are asking about the processor speed. This eMachines dekstop has an AMD Athlon Processor 2850e, which operates at 1.8GHz. There are much faster processors on the market that you can investigate. This desktop is built for everyday computing and is a good starting PC. Walmart also sells the eMachines ET1331G-03W desktop which has an AMD dual-core processor and it operates at 2.7GHz.

No. This eMachines desktop does not come with built-in WIFI, so it will not connect to a wireless network. The RJ-45 jack allows you to connect to a wired internet connection. If you have internet service into your house from a cable provider then this PC can connect via an ethernet cable to the cable modem.

Missy,

There are certain USB hubs online that you can purchase that have Firewire ports built into the hub itself. But remember this, its a USB 2.0 adapter and any firewire you plug into this hub is going to downconvert the transfer speed to USB 2.0 standards and not firewire.

The computer has 1 optical drive. I think it might sound like you like to do disc duplicating. You can purchase a external USB 2.0 DVD Burner and use the computer in this manner.

It would be an excellent choice, but it does not have the dial-up modem or rj-11 phone connector built in. The next higher priced one does, I think, or you could get a separate modem, but it would have to be for USB to connect to this pc.Also you need your own monitor.

This eMachines desktop does not have a built-in dial up modem. You would have to purchase a USB dial-up modem. Using a PC over dial-up is slow and can be frustrating. As far as your question about this PC for beginners, it is an excellent PC for basic computing. You would need to purchase a monitor.

This eMachines desktop does not have any available expansion bays. Walmart also sells the eMachines EL1331G-03W. This model has 6GB memory and a 750GB HDD with available expansion bays.

I checked the emachines website and they said the following:

One 5.25" drive bay
One 3.5" internal drive bay

Both of them are full from the looks of things, you can only have one hard drive in there.

You can always look in here for more info:
