Unfortunately people new to PCs often regard name-brands highly when
shopping for their first computer, and they will often turn up their snouts
when they see my (very nice looking) white-box clones. I have also had
people tell me they didn't believe small shops actually built systems, but
that we bought them from some Asian factory (too "complex" to be produced
outside of an assembly line).
