Has been doing the old build the custom PC since the pre-8088 days. Last year he saw the light and no longer chases after the PC desktop market. He's moved to a few custom servers and laptops.

For my part I get calls when he has the need to check on what to do for repairs. Laptops are dominant here so desktops are rare and getting rarer.

Not only that, I often find these custom desktops to have slipshod Windows installs. And not one has the install routine for the end user to refer to when Windows needs a reload.

Not a business I would start today.
