Default computer purchase

I am considering purchasing a new computer and was looking at a Presario Compac. Any comments on this computer; advantages and disadvantages.

Your much better having one built to your specifications, Some of the main manufacturer machines use motherboards (and other components)
that are specific to their design.

Just fixing a compaq with an Asus motherboard that isnt suported by Asus and uses ECC registered ram etc... in short, theyr'e a pain in the arse!
