Dear readers, it's that wonderful time again – our System Builder Marathon series for Summer 2011 with Newegg.

Just as we've done in the past, we put a few different system configurations through their paces and analyze various different points of price and performance. They make great reads for those putting together new machines, and they also have the positive side effect of being the prizes for our giveaways!

Remember to keep up with our ongoing System Builder Marathon series:

Day 1: The $2000 Performance PC

Day 3: The $500 Gaming PC
Day 4: Performance And Value, Dissected
Day 5: Tom's Hand-Picked SuperCombo

    What the crap? Does Canada not exist? What about Europe? Australia? Hell, I'd be more than willing to flip the shipping bill if you extended it to Canada, but Tom's is just alienating the entire world outside the U.S.

  • I love these contests and the quality builds. Though I do question some choices, like not going with 8gb of ram in a $1000 build when you can get it for under $100.

    Canadians, Rhode Islander's and the rest can you stop complaining about these contests and start trying to change your own laws/customs that make it a complicated pain in the behind to let you in.

    I'm sure if it was world-wide, people would still pay shipping.
    Why does it "have" to be limited to those locations?

    Is there a law against giving things away to people outside the U.S or something?

    Yeah, Canadians are shunned....And as for laws all you have to do is write "No cash value" on it. Also even if we did have to pay a small tax, i woudln't mind.

    Its all abotu laws and regulations that restrict Toms from doing the contest there.

    Add in customs and such and its a right down messed up system.

    I am sure there are Canada or other countries contests that we cannot get here in the US.

    BTW, I think I should get the $2K PC. Please.

    The bashing Tom's for not extending the contest to non-US readers deal is getting old. Every time this contest comes around at least one person whines and the reasons have to be explained yet another time. Maybe Tom's should post a notice in the stories they announce the contest explaining the reasons so that no one wastes anymore comments.

    For those wondering why the contest is for US residents only.

    Not a smart move on their part, following your advice, eh?.
