Re: Can this be built for <800
Idk I've never bought a pre-built. I've been tinkering with computers since I was 10 years old so I just don't trust other people to build them for me :P Also seems like a waste of money to me its so easy and fun (to me).
From my experience with HP though (my laptop) their customer service is... well, they get the job accomplished, but you really have to be patient with their customer support people, they direct you through people based in India and whatnot and they ask you the stupidest questions ever.
Also, I had to send in my laptop 3 times before they got the problem fixed.
