eMachines puts Intel inside

eMachines Inc. has switched from a mixed bag of CPU brands to an all-Intel line-up.

The company’s three new eTower desktops are based solely on the Celeron. Priced at $399, $499 and $599 (after a $50 rebate), the introductions mark a departure from eMachine’s previous processor menu, which had included choices from National Semiconductor’s Cyrix MII line in its $399 models and AMD’s K6-2 in its $499 models.

Analysts cite Intel’s aggressive Celeron price cuts for making the chip more attractive than its rivals for the new eMachine offerings.
