Though he could probably be smart and hand you a Tegra based tablet My computer is a monument to brand diversity, Only similar brand components are the case and (most of the) fans (Coolermaster), and the water-cooling (XSPC, which will change soon). I think the closest you could get to building a machine all from one brand would be ASUS, they seem to have fingers in every pie in the industry. Of those two builds, I would go with the 2nd.
