    There ARE American Businesses who assemble computers and service them here in AMERICA! Not from outside the country!

    But are these computers worth it? YES!
    They are machines that can do work at a competitive price!

    Systemax Computers [USA] -Systemax has a policy never to outsource an American job.
    Systemax Desktop Computers at CompUSA.com


    Pudget Systems [USA] - Pudget Systems is an American manufacturer based out of Seattle. They specialize in custom, build to order computers, based on high quality parts and excellent customer service.
    Custom PC Builder, Gaming Computers, Desktops, Laptops, Servers


    ZT Systems [USA] - ZT Systems is an American manufacturer of high quality PCs. Based in New Jersey, they build affordable desktops and notebooks for home use. They also manufacture high powered computers and servers for business use.

    ZT computers are priced competitively, but still use quality components. And not only are their computers made in the USA, but they’re supported here too. That’s even sweeter because ZT Systems stands by their products by offering lifetime 24/7 technical support, a tremendous value.

    I applaude your effort to help Americans buy American.

    But I must ask you if these companies are manufacturing the computers, or merely assembling parts made offshore?

    I suspect they're merely asembling the parts.

    My first real PC had a 1 Gig hard drive and a whopping 16 megs of memory and cost 1600 bucks so it really blows me a way to see modern computers with a Terabyte hard drive 16 Gigs of memory! Just wow!

    My first computer was a Commodore 64 (Commode Door) so that had what, a 64K hard drive?

    That's right, RAM not a hard drive. That's why it took 5 minutes to load a game! :lol:

    Yeah, it keeps on getting more powerful.
    But Hard Drives have kinda reached their limit in speed
    Solid State Drives replace hard drives in terms of speed
    But a PCIe Solid State Drive is the fastest you can go. It utilizes the expansion slots which have a much faster data transfer rate.

    And there are allready laptops that can take 32 Gigs of memory. (and desktops too. 32 gigs is all windows can handle. We don't know what windows 8 can handle yet)

    Processors can go to 4GHZ+ if you have the correct cooling and a factory unlocked processor.

    AMD just released an 8core processor. Intel is soon to follow. (I believe with ivey bridge. I dont know if they will have the 8 core under the sandy bridge platform)

    Video cards have the cross fire ability. (when they connect together to become one) and there is a card that has a whopping 4GB of memory thats GDDR5.
