They often have very limited upgrade capabilities, rubbish graphics, no ability to add a decent graphics card and if you was to wipe the machine without the eMachine restore CD, you have next to no chance of getting all the bits working again.
Heck, they don't even take the Dell approach, which is to basically take a standard motherboard and have a few modifications made to it; therefore allowing one the chance to actually get it back to a working state. eMachines (or every one I've seen anyway) use unique boards that don't show up on Google searches.
I personally wouldn't spend any money on it. Perhaps it might be worth waiting until prices of the new hardware comes down significantly over the rest of the year and look at the situation again.
