If you can build one cheaper yourself then you had better speak to the 900 
resellers who went out of business last year due to pressures from the likes 
of Dell, and PC world (I've even heard of companys buying from ASDA).

We ourselves have given up building our own. Please don't try and tell me you 
can command a better price as an individual when we as a company with bigger 
buying powers than you cant build them cheaper than Dell.

I used to use the line you gave of;
"Ah well its better to have individual parts everything is on the motherboard 
with that machine".

That argument cuts no ice anymore the build quality is pretty good these days 
plus like most people all thats cared about is CHEAP.

Yes my feathers are ruffled!
