LOL, It's the "world's largest catsup bottle" lol. It's in collinsville IL right east of St. Louis.

Nothing special really, just found it funny that there is a website dedicated to it :P

Service wise I have had experience with Apple, Dell, and HP and of those HP is the worst. We once sent in a unit for repair and HP lost it and it took a year to get a replacement model. Apple... well they are just a pain in the ***. They get the job done, but are real jerks about it and getting parts is quite painstaking unless you know your local authorized dealers. Dell tends to have in between service, but getting parts from them is always a breeze.

I have had great experience with services.

I call myself, and say, hey! I need a new part.

And I go to newegg and RMA the part.

Within three days, I have the new part and I do a free install for myself




:P

I would recommend cyberpowerpc, I got my system from there ( minus the gfx card and ram and additional accessories I got cheaper from newegg )

I actually calculated the cost of my system on cyberpowerpc which came out to 1230, and calculated the very same components on newegg and that cost came out to 1170, which means paying 60 bucks for labor + free shipping with cyberpowerpc aint too shabby

Try and find a local shop willing to build you a CPC.

Are there even ANY production PC builders that don't entirely suck? because I have yet to see one that didn't....
