The eMachines EL1210-11 is an entry-level desktop PC intended mainly for basic home use and some media applications, and builds slightly on the earlier EL1210-09 model. It uses an AMD Athlon X2 4050e dual-core processor, with 2.1GHz clock speed and has 1MB of L2 cache. It has 3GB of DDR2 SDRAM spread over 2 RAM slots, and the 1GB stick can be upgraded to a 2GB one for a total of 4GB. It has a 160GB SATA hard drive,  and NVIDIA's GeForce 8200 integrated graphics processing with 256MB of shared video memory and a PCI-express slot available for upgrading. The operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium, including Service Pack 1, and peripherals include stereo speakers, keyboard and a PS2 wheel mouse. Like the EL1210-09, it also has 6-channel, 5.1 high-definition audio playback. The disc drive is an 18x DVD±R/RW, and there is also a digital media card reader for portable memory sticks. It has a total of 7 USB ports, some of which are mounted on the front of the case. The EL1210-11 does not include a monitor. Its main upgrades over the EL1210-09 are the extra gigabyte of RAM and the inclusion of a dual-core processor. All other specifications are the same.
