Yes, I have seriously considered building, and I will be selling whichever of these computers I get so I can build a computer or buy my friend's Alienware.

What I'm wondering is why you want to buy one of these and THEN build. Can't you just circumvent the buying of one of these machines?

But, if you need the laptop, I'd say the second.

EDIT: If you want to know which will sell for the most, I'm not quite sure any of them will sell for any more than $300-400, excluding the laptops.

Thank you. I figured the better laptop would sell for the most.

I'm not buying it, it's free. More on that later.
