I don't think anyone mentioned buying pre-built computers. I tend to
prefer online retailers, because if you shop around you can find
prices close to that of the markets, and it's more convenient and
easier to chase up a warranty claim. But if there's a markets on
around the time I need to purchase something, it's worth going along.
I haven't had any problems with gear I've gotten there.

Be well,
