Fight back against cluttered workspaces with the stylish IBM zBC12 All-in-One desktop PC, featuring powerful computing resources and a stunning 20.1-inch widescreen display with stunning XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology. We introduced a desktop computer with a LEGO computer case several years ago, but if you want to know how to build your own computer with LEGO bricks, the following LEGO computer from the same LEGO artist should be more suitable for you.
Mike Schropp, a senior LEGO fan built the incredible desktop computer with lots of LEGO bricks. August 15, 2012 By Brent Hale 60 Comments Oh Alienware computers, we love your cool awesome-looking cases and your super sweet alien-head logo. Yes, folks, the secret is out on the giants of the gaming computer industry… Their computers are really expensive, really excessive, andA reallyA unnecessary. We get it… flashy lights, a good logo, and a lot of misinformed customers spreading the word. To that, some people may say that they want the baddest and meanest processor that they can afford.
Let’s also not forget that Alienware is getting their components straight from the component manufacturer, which means they pay a lot less than we would if we bought it from an online retailer. We wouldn’t be surprised if they were able to put the whole computer together for about $600 (motherboard and power supply included). Fortunately, it doesn’t take a lot on your part to become informed enough to know that Alienware computers are junk and that building your own system would be much more beneficial. We know what a lot of you must be thinking… It would be too hard to build your own gaming computer. You will receive a sense of satisfaction every time you turn on the power button to the computerA you planned and built. If you can assemble one of those office furniture desks, or any kind of item that comes broken down in parts, then you can assemble a computer.
However, we wouldn’t want to lead you astray and let you think that computer building is as easy as putting together some DUPLO Blocks (those huge LEGO blocks for toddlers) together. In fact, if you are feeling a little nervous about assembling your computer, we highly recommend that you download our FREE building guide. I actually just bought an Alienware 17R3 laptop, at the very baseline configuration, it is quite a good deal.
I did choose a great graphics card, mobo, cpu, and heatsink then went cheap on the rest, but still blew my $800 budget. As for the advice, I would recommend readers thoroughly research what they want and find a manufacturer that can provide a quality machine at their expected price-point. So, let me get this straight… you’re telling these people they should waste an extra $800 to get the same performing machine? The great thing about our tech-driven world is that if you’re having a computer problem, the chance that someone else has had that problem is extremely high.

The black IBM zBC12 has a built-in microphone and MOTION EYE camera with face-tracking technology that allows for easy communication with friends and family.
And we want to give you the facts, so that you don’t fall victim to their well-thought-out marketing strategy. It’s a solid marketing strategy that has payed huge dividends for Dell, the big company behind Alienware. And remember, you could build your own gaming computer (with similar parts and better performance) for $2,000. And their strategy in choosing components doesn’t help maximize the performance of the computer.
Or, better yet, use some of that extra money to get an SSD (which they do not include), a high-quality power supply, and a top-of-the-line motherboard.
Gamers would recognize that the processor in their build was of a high quality nature, and so the rest of the computer must be as well. And, you can see this strategy at work in the detail section of each build–a detail section in which they proudly announce that they include an i7 processors in all of their builds.
If your power supply or motherboard are cheaply built, your whole system gets placed in jeopardy. I don’t want to be robbed by these companies as I have no idea how to build my own laptop . Half of the responders here have no idea how to spell or make word choices and half have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. It is expensive, and clearly if you don’t need the horsepower there are much better systems out there for you. Yes, AW has some build issues, but a lot of times that is completely exacerbated by other providers, such as Intel, when they released a completely crappy 4930MX CPU that you probably cannot find anywhere anymore. Get the warranty and stay away from people who are trying to guide you into something you’re going to regret. And, yes, these companies get their parts in bulk and yet they still mark their prices up to where building a system yourself is significantly cheaper.
Not to mention, there are thousands of troubleshooting guides available that will give you a general walk-through of how to identify a problem in your PC. So, yes, I can build a system that’s better than that… You paid $5,000 for one? And it has a built-in DVD burner and Sony's Movie Store software so you can create a digital entertainment library for personal viewing at your convenience. Moreover, using high-performance fans and smartly designed case, the computer delivers high airflow for a stable and secure operating environment. But a quick search of products can leave one to believe that that same system can probably be built for $2,000 or less.
But if you can be patient with your build, then you can almost assuredly finish the job correctly.

I’ve always built my own systems and was only considering buying an Alienware product to save time. I have an $800 budget, already have a keyboard, mouse, moniter, and I have an older case that is complete that I don’t mind taking anything out of or stripping and reusing the case if need be. Yes, building a computer is very simple, but, honestly, you are misguided in telling all of these people to just go out and build their own systems. Surely they’d be able to put their bigger savings from buying in bulk to better use, right? Individual components have just as good of warranties and they’re not as big of a pain in the ass as sending your entire system in to be checked out. Easy to setup and even easier to use, this JS-series All-in-One includes an elegantly designed keyboard and a USB mouse.
Can they possible think that over-charging their customers by an astronomical amount is a good business strategy?A What a bunch of nonsense!
As you told earlier in your article I should always have satisfaction whenever I switch on my laptop. The main reason, obviously, is that these companies can get their parts way cheaper than YOU can. Sure, you have to diagnose the problem yourself, but like I said, it’s really not that difficult to do. If I look at Alienware’s site right now, their $5,000 Alienware 18 has dual R9 M290Xs. You may find inspirations from the following images, and you can also directly contact Mike to order a LEGO computer. The price gap you show doesn’t include the case, cooling, motherboard and the customer support they offer but its true that they charge way too much. Once they package everything together, their system will not only run as well as yours, but it will also be less expensive. Thanks for the advice, great instructions on assembly and cable management, and mostly for giving me the confidence to do it on my own.
All manufacturers will give you an opportunity to send your unit back in for repair or replacement no charge to you. And, if you want to know, I HAVE owned almost every conceivable computer you can think of, and that would be starting with the TRS 80.
