One of the cool things about having a blog is that you get to talk about whatever you want. And if by chance the thing you're talking about is something you're promoting as well, the odds are at least some of your readers might be interested.
In my case, I'm not actually promoting something I've done, but a new business my son has started. And in the off chance that you can benefit from his newfound venture too, then everybody wins!
If you remember, my son Brandon has forever been involved in all things high-tech. In fact, you can read about how he hacked into my computer here and how he builds computers from the ground up here. Or - you can simply scroll back two stories and read about how he launched Homer Simpson into song during a meeting with one of my clients.
Fortunately, all of this "experience" has led him down a path of entrepreneurship. And as a result of these efforts, Brandon has taken his skills to the next level and started his own business called PebiPC.com (a pebibyte refers to the next byte level above terabyte).
With this intuitive on-line configurator, you can easily build your own custom PC by choosing all the components that best suit your needs. Then when you're done, Brandon will order the parts and operating system, assemble and test it thoroughly, and ship it directly to your house or place of business - all at a fraction of the cost of what the same computer would sell for in a retail store or from a large company such as Dell or Gateway.
As an example, his last customer bought the PC shown in the picture at the top with this configuration:
Processor: AMD 64 X2 2.0GHz (Dual-core)Total cost (not including shipping because it was for local delivery)... only $562.
Video Card: 6600LE 256MB
Memory: 2GB DDR2
Hard Drive: 200GB SATA
Optical Drive: DVD+/-RW DL
USB Ports: 6 (4 Back + 2 Front)
PS/2 Ports: 1 Mouse, 1 Keyboard
Parallel/LPT port: 1
Serial/COM port: 1
10/100Mb Ethernet: 1
Audio Jacks: 3 (1 Audio out + 1 Line in + 1 Microphone)
Power Supply: 550 watt
Cost if you ordered a similar PC from Dell? $999.
As you can see, this is a very substantial savings.
Brandon has several satisfied customers already - many who have begun referring even more business his way every week. In fact just this afternoon while he was demoing his website to a local business owner (who bought a computer from him on the spot) - the person sitting next to them in the restaurant overhead the meeting and asked for a business card for himself.
Bottom line... if you're in need of a new PC, stop by PebiPC.com first and check it out. You can "test configure" it right there online and see the savings yourself. Support is free for the life of your computer, all parts are guaranteed for one year and you won't find an easier way to order.
