We suspect most HEXUS readers take the time to build their own PC, but these days there are reasons to consider taking the turnkey route.
The simplification of various components is such that the build process arguably isn't as rewarding as it once was - what used to feel like a day-long operation can now be completed in 30 minutes flat - and with the advantage of buying in bulk, system integrators often offer base units at price points that individuals will struggle to match.
Factor in the warranty and the possibility of being first in line for otherwise out-of-stock components, and you might argue that an off-the-shelf system is the way to go. On the other hand, what could be more satisfying than booting up your own build and seeing it come to life?
We're curious to know which way you lean, so for this week's question we're asking: have you ever bought a pre-built desktop? If so, let us know how it turned out, and if not, is it something you're ever likely to consider?
