Default barebone kit

If one was to buy a barebone kit and it came with a hard drive but it wasn't wanted, would the seller reduce the price of the kit and take out the HD and sell it that way?

thx

It depends on the seller. If it's a company they most probably won't.

I agree with rohan. if it's a personal seller though, maybe they would. Just maybe though.

You cannot add/delete components of a barebone kit from a retailer such as Tiger Direct or Newegg.

Don't buy a barebone kit, just build one from scratch. Those barebone kits usually aren't that great.

agreed, and a little overpriced compared to how much it is to build one from scratch.
