I bought a desktop from cyber power (cyberpowerpc.com) and it has worked out pretty good, no major problems. I need to buy a laptop with certain specs for college and was planning on customizing one from there. Is there any other place that you all know of that is cheaper or you have had a really good experience with? I thought it might be cheaper to just buy a laptop with a motherboard and then buy the cpu, ram, and optical drive from newegg, but it is cheaper to buy it preassembled. I really need to customize it though, so any ideas would be great.
