Apple sues eMachines over iMac clone

Apple has filed suit against eMachines in U.S. Federal Court, seeking an injunction to stop the company from shipping its new iMac look-alike computer, the eOne.

The move was expected as a follow-up to Apple's previous lawsuit against Future Power and Daewoo, which unveiled its own all-in-one PC with translucent plastic accents earlier this summer.

eMachines claims that it designed its opaque blue PC independently of Apple. Based on off-the-shelf Wintel architecture, the eOne is much cheaper than the iMac. The eOne advertises pricing as low as $399 after rebate, compared with $1,199 for the Apple machine.

The eOne began shipping two weeks ago.
