This new eMachines computer & 19" LCD flat panel monitor were found under the Christmas tree on 12-25-06.

How will YOU, the user of The LED Museum benefit?
Let me count just a few of the ways:
  1. Better quality pictures - with its 19" Soyo flat panel LCD monitor, I can actually see things I couldn't see before. All of my digital cameras also work with it, so I don't waste half an hour to get one or two photographs imported.

  2. Better connectivity - being fully networkable means I can connect lab instruments to other computers, and then the other computers to this one and not have floppies or their 1.44 meg file size limit getting in the way. I can also connect the other computer to the cable modem via router and just FTP the stuff that needs to be FTP'd up anyway, and use this computer to make or update the web page(s) necessary to display that data - and FTP those up too.

  3. It's blazing fast - jobs that took an hour now only take a few minutes.

  4. And it's crash-resistant. No more typing up a document, only to lose it to a Windows '95 or '98 "blue screen" crash right when I hit the "Save" button. (this happened a lot before CPF members got me a new computer in mid-2002)

This is the HP Deskjet D1341 color printer I also received with this computer.

Here's the 19" flat panel LCD monitor.
Those blue things aren't urinators, they're wall-mounted storage bins for test equipment, lasers, new flashlights, light bulbs, etc.
