    I know, all the legacy, pre-plug-and-play stuff was just a pain. Although, I always thought the idea of the VESA was kind cool, I guess nifty would be the better word, in that ISA and EISA could both work in a VESA port. Too bad they were so unreliable.

    Oh yeah, and the thread title should be: "Why aren't more people buying them?"

    I used to hang out with my brother and his friends, and they would build computers for personal use, and for people they knew. So me saying that building computers is really easy is kinda biased, but I guess it is kinda easy nowadays.

    So yeah...why aren't more people buying barebones?

    NUOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I posted bull shit.

    Shame on me :<

    But, yeah, didn't know that, thanks for the enlightenment.


    Anywho, I think it's because most people who do build there own computers, are the people who actually realize that they can build their own computers.

    And in almost all cases get cheaper for better, except when they decide to "competively price" their comps, I.E. underselling the crap out of a certain line of models, and picking up the tab with models on the other ends of the spectrun, so no one else can possibly beat em.

    And hey, if you build you own comp and know enough to get the better cases [... one's that are well ventilated, and provide a lot of mounts for fans] you can overcloak the crap out of your CPU. Since these days, GPUs come pre-overcloaked, and you can't really do that much, unless you feel like going with some inanely expensive cooling method, in which case it'd almost certainly be cheaper just buy the better component.


    ... Unless of course you have access to some of the rather interesting technologies coming out of the nanotech industry, like the buckyball loaded oil that is such an efficient heat mover, you can run an engine without a radiator.

    Looking at the Panasonic FZ10 they are selling, that site is sticking a discounted price on the msrp of old discontinued merchandise. That camera was manufactured around 2003 and the item was added to the store listing on May 4 2006...and the listing mentions at the bottom "Limited Time Offer". They've sure got a broad definition of what limited means.
