Patsy Davis CIS 122 RECOMMENDING NEW PC TO A FRIEND THE LEVEL OF SUPPORT THAT THE COMPANIES OFFER IS UNMATCHERABLE,

SO I MIGHT RECOMMEND BUYING DELL SHELF COMPUTERS, IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT. HOWEVER, I THINK CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN COMPUTER ALLOWS YOU THE FREEDOOM TO UPGRADE OR DOWNGRADE A PART AND THE QUALITY IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME. DELL, HP, AND GATEWAY OFFER CUSTOMIZATION COMPUTER, BUT DONT GIVE YOU WHOLE LOT OF CHOICES. THE MOST INFLUENCE ON THE PRICE OF THE SHELF COMPUTERS WAS THE HARD DRIVE, THE VIDEO CARD, THE CPU, AND MEMORY. THE DELL COMPUTERS optiplex gx620 costs $2174.00 and was customized built for $1386 giving a saving of about $800. A customize computer will take about 1 hours to put the computer together. The parts used in the custom computer were of the same quality or the same part used in the Dell Computer. You can charge $200 less and still offer some form of services and support. The lower end dell computers are hard to match price and warrants. The saving is only about $100.00 The Gateway Computer DX310s costs $1008.99 and a comparable computer can be built for $700.00. The parts used in the custom computer were of the same quality or the same part used in the Gateway Computer. The parts come with warrants from 1 year to 3 years or lifetime. However with a saving of just over $300.00, I would not warrant for no more than 6 months. The Gateway Computer fx510xt costs $3913.99 and a comparable computer can be built for $2866. The parts used in the custom computer were of the same quality or the same part used in the Gateway Computer. The parts come with warrants from 1 year to 3 years or lifetime. However with a saving of just over $1000.00, and the expense parts used, I would not warrant for no more than 1year for parts and labor. The HP PAVILION M7500e costs $994.99 and a comparable computer can be built for $664. The parts used in the custom computer were of the same quality or the same part used in the HP Computer. The parts come with warrants from 1 year to 3 years or lifetime. However, with a saving of just over $300.00, I could not give the same service or support that HP offers or the addition software. The HP PAVILION M7660e costs $2208.47 and a comparable computer can be built for $1577. The parts used in the custom computer were of the same quality or the same part used in the HP Computer. The parts come with warrants from 1 year to 3 years or lifetime. However, with a saving of just over $600.00, I still could not give the same service or support that HP offers or the addition software. However I could build a computer for a even lesser price.
