Of course, that starting price only gets you a Ryzen 3700X with the stock cooler, 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM, an RX 580, Two 250GB SSDs (one boot drive for each OS) and a 2TB hard drive for data, apparently with some undefined motherboard and PSU that they aren't listing. So, it's somewhere around $1000-$1100 worth of hardware for $2200, along with the operating systems, at least one of which is grey market, and the other probably is as well. And they charge $600 more just to switch from a 3700X to a 3950X. It's not quite Mac pro pricing, but they are still marking the hardware up by close to 100%. Except they are some unheard of company asking for payments via Bitcoin with no real buyer protection if they fail to deliver. >_>The system appears to be built into a Lian Li TU150 chassis, packing up to a Ryzen 9 3950X CPU, AMD Radeon Vega VII GPU, alongside 64GB of DDR4 memory, with a starting price of $2200.
apple really isn't overpriced, the problem is the lack of options so there are only a few hardware options at each price point, but that also ensures stability.Ha, of COURSE it does. Every video and tutorial you see about doing this disclaims that Apple doesn't support or endorse the use of "other" products than what they officially support. They don't have permission and they aren't going to get it. Apple isn't going to endorse undercutting their overpriced systems model.
This company must be plain dumb to put themselves in a position of risk like that.
If you know hardware prices and don't shop like a total idiot Apple's prices are insane. Of course if you buy a built computer from HP or Dell its likely to be almost as bad. The problem is most people buy quality in areas they don't need. Like if you don't game you don't need a gaming card. Maybe you need lots of ram but not such a fast CPU? We all have different needs. Manufacturers have to make a profit on their parts. Why not circumvent them and buy exactly what you need direct from the source? Makes more sense. Also, many people when upgrading don't even need all new parts. Often the power supply can be used, often the case. Rarely do we need to replace everything.apple really isn't overpriced, the problem is the lack of options so there are only a few hardware options at each price point, but that also ensures stability.
