I'm not overly impressed, but I think that's because I know I could probably build you one cheaper. Is that price with shipping??

If you have the know how, building it yourself would be cheapest. If not, I'm sure the guys here can tell you all of their favorite comp web sites.

It's not a bad price.

2003-02-18, 01:56 PM
Yea not too bad - heh, I've seen worse :p

2003-02-18, 02:50 PM
but.. I've seen a lot better :p :cool:

2003-02-18, 04:18 PM
This belongs in the tech forum, no one goes there so it doesnt matter anyway. Yeah good deal.

2003-02-18, 04:20 PM

2003-02-18, 04:26 PM

Did you build that on a site? OR is it just pkg #24355?

2003-02-18, 05:32 PM
Good point. If it's built then it's not bad but if it's just a type you can get tht's a little too much. And BTW tech forum pwns you all!

2003-02-19, 12:20 PM
its a local computer company, that assembles computers, you tell them want you want, you pay them and they build it. thats pretty much it, and they come to your house and make sure everything is hooked up and working, i think that includes hooking up internet and stuff, but im not sure id have to check.

thats their website if any of you care enough to go to it.

2003-02-19, 10:46 PM
ahh, if it's a custom job, then yeah, that's a pretty good price... especially since they'll come out to set it up for you and they'll be right there if something goes wrong. :)

2003-02-20, 11:31 AM
I think they just set it up at their place of business and then come out to his place if he needs any tech support.

2003-02-20, 11:48 AM
I just meant right there in the area if something goes wrong later. Unlike if you order it online and the tech people are in another state.

2003-02-20, 12:13 PM
Oh well yeah. :D There are quite a few internet companies that provide on site tech support. I don't know if they have people near major cities or contract local people to do it but it's still good that more and more companies are offering that type of support for their products.
