[Buying/Building a New PC/Laptop] How to pick parts? DIY or OEM? When

I wrote this piece after getting asked by friends and family over and over on the questions. What to buy? When to buy? DIY or OEM. The idea for the article is to bridge the gap between technical details and layman terms. Covers DIY and OEM desktops. Also, laptops.

Hope the post is useful. When people ask me again, I just point them over and save my time repeating the same things over and over.

Let me know if there's anything I should do to improve it. Huge knowledge base in this forum. :)
