    I have a "custom built" Dell laptop, which I reconfigured, to shed bloatware, but at the office, I have a true custom built desktop, which I use all day long.

    Did you reconfigure the hardware, or just removed the bloatware?

    If you don't mind me asking, are you an undergrad, grad, or postgrad? What is your major?

    I have a Dell 4600 which I had them build to order. The first thing I did was uninstall Norton security suite they gave me for free, and a few more apps I didn't need. After 4 years, with the help of this forum, it's a mean lean machine. :D

    Purchased, built to spec from sites like PC Specialist or Cyberpower for desktops, and standard off the shelf laptops.

    Purchased, from local OEM's "catalog". The only change I've made inside was to add a DVD drive to replace the original CD-ROM one.

    You can take a vacation, I did, though it did not go well, because of damaged components, so I wasted a week for nothing and then I had to do it in hurry at night and between shifts, but it is a solid PC, so I do not pity it. I built a PC of my dreams, but I will never waste so much money at it again, dream fullfiled. :D

    Never had a name brand PC. Started from my first by raiding my brother's and friend's old hardware, then bought upgrades. Just finished my latest build about a month ago.

    I think that this poll does not represent a cross section of the PC community. Users of this board tend to have higher than average tech skills, which would make it easier for us to build PCs than it would be for the average end user.

    Although I build my home units, at work I buy Dells simply because building a computer is not a cost effective use of my time. It is cheaper for the company for me to go to www.dell.com and get what I need.
