I heard about this company from a friend. I don't want to buy my new PC without getting some honest feedback from some other experienced users.
I don't want to buy a typical name-brand PC. This company looks like they're selling a pretty hot system. What do you think?
Only drawbacks I see is that there is no customiser. There is also only one system to choose from for the Athlon and the Pentium. I also dislike WIN ME and will be building a Athlon system with DDR. There system still uses SD RAM which if thats what you want then maybe this is for you. The price tag is a bit high if you ask me too.
I agree with FUGGER (that's not something you hear very often at this site), they use very good hardware, but it does seem expensive. If you don't want to bother building one yourself then those computers seem to be of very high quality. A lot better that some HP or Compaq POS.
Nice systems, but the key question (to me) is:
Is the company reliable (and trust-worthy)? I tried to look them up in resellerratings.com but they were not listed.

Someone has to be different, so it might as well be me.
I like the motherboard, CPU and memory choices of the Titanium (Tbird-based) system, although many good motherboards have 100 EIDE RAID built in.
Linksys is a good brand, among the cheaper lines. Windoze ME is a major mistake. This indicates hidden cost cutting to me.
My guess is it's about $600 profit for the seller, after factoring in all costs. This seems a bit high. However perhaps that's what you have to pay to get a machine built with quality components, rather than one stuffed with the stuff they can't sell elsewhere.
There's no justice, there's just us.

Thing is the people building ths systems are using normal parts we can all buy and they need to make some money on it. Do they provide a warranty I wonder?
