Hmm, looks like this is slowly becoming a regular column in this bloggo of mine, the Warnings not to buy particular hardware from one particular American retail giant *Cough* Walmart *Gough cough*.
We’ve seen them trying to fool us with a line of Gaming Laptops, now they are trying the same shitty move with desktops. Look what my video essayist, Bitwit Kyle, has found out:
No. Don’t buy this shit. I said it before and I’ll say it again … and again … and againandagainandagain…: Peepels, this shit is LEGO for adults! It’s not even “building” a PC but merely assembling it. WCGW, right? Everybody and their grandma did it, your neighbour’s teenage son did it; fuk, even Orca did it.
So don’t throw any more money into Wally’s greedy snout, don’t feed the monster more of your precious moolah. Assemble your own system, be the proud owner of something that’s 100% you, your taste, your handiwork! Look, there’s nothing wrong with making a profit off of your own self-assembled line of hardware. The profit margins in the hardware field have shrunken to nearly zero in the early 2000s, and we should be grateful that anyone’s still doing it, selling us the cool stuffz for much too cheap prices.
So let’s take ’em out of their mysery, just buy the single spare parts and cobble together our own machines. You’ll end up with something better, no waste, no bloat, pure quality and all-around goodness. And for les money. What? You don’t dare? Hey, didn’t mention the neighbour’s teenage son who’s more than willing to do it all for you for a tenner, say.
