Honestly, who buys these things?

Their systems are not bad, but the markup is outrageous. The second and third builds on their site are close to a 1000 dollars (each) more expensive than what one would normally pay if doing the assembly themselves.

All the BS "expert craftsmanship", "lifetime support" and "extensive testing" are definitely not worth the price hike.
