Quite right, Roger - and this is standard industry procedure, used (if less frequently) even by the biggest names in the PC business.

But it should be noted that what "customization" involves may be quite substantial, and go beyond what processor/motherboard is used. Investigating forum discussions on the difference between this same machine as offered by Alienware and, I read that the LCD display used by Alienware is quite high quality, but that is something Alienware itself installs. That's obviously a big difference in the quality of machine that you get, and Eugenia was right to note the performance of the LCD.

Also, this is the first time I've heard of this machine coming with the Cyberlink media-viewing firmware installed. Those giving opinions on the bang-for-the-buck of this machine seemed to have overlooked that this feature was included by LinuxCertified.
