I wonder if it's a regional difference. I'll shoot them an email tomorrow, I think.
I would love it if you could find out any info on the I series. I was almost convinced it was the one the OP posted in this thread as it had the i500 buried in the name. I am out of work for a back surgery that must be done, and the short term and long term disability I have won't quite cut it, so was hoping to be able to build and sell rigs to make up the difference. The more I think about it though, the more I just want to build/mod rigs myself and open an honest to god computer store here in Savannah, Ga. The closest thing we have is a bestbuy and a guy that does random work on ancient machines at the flea market
There is such a void in the market here that I feel I would be able to capitalize on it and I LOVE TO BUILD AWESOME RIGS and there's no reason everyone can't have an awesome rig without paying an arm and a leg for them. I sold a pretty nice rig on ebay for ~$500 and the kid bought a really nice computer, fractal design case, asus c4f mobo, 8gb corsair vengeance, a sapphire 7770, 2- 60GB ssd's 1 TB HDD, nice aftermarket cooler xigmatek gaia w/2 fans case loaded with fans, and a bitfenix recon fan controller, oh and a amd 965BE, and I still managed to pocket a cpl bucks for myself and pay for most of the next computer i'm building, sure I could have charged him a lot more, but for what I invested in it, it was a great deal for me.Edited by azrael36 - 5/13/13 at 8:57pm
