eMachines is planning a new version of its controversial all-in-one eOne machine - which is still reminiscent of Apple's popular iMac.

Apple filed a lawsuit against eMachines in August 1999, claiming the eOne was a copy of the iMac’s industrial design. Despite the legal storm, eMachines is pressing on with a soon-to-be-announced update to the product, because retailers and consumers love it, said an eMachines spokesperson.

eMachines, which claims to be the third-largest PC supplier, has also rolled out a new line that includes its first notebook and a desktop aimed at gamers at Comdex in Las Vegas. The new units range in price from $399 to $999, without monitor. All are expected to be available in December.
