I'd rather build my own usually. But if I have to pick a name brand then HP wins hands down.

All my PCs except my first 486 in 1993 have been self-built.

I have no idea what I'd buy if I was looking to get one pre-made.
Like BP6.com? Not a member?
Then why the hell not? It's great!

Mine was 1994 (Pentium 90). I agree with your last statement.

My primary work system is an IBM Thinkpad. Would have it no other way. They are super.
For home I build what I need, ( and what I don''t need ) .
