Are there any good/generally recommended prebuilt PC suppliers?

simply ebin

The more general rule of thumb is to never buy a consumer prebuilt PC. If you want an actual advantage over building your own, buy a business model so that you get superior build quality and better support from the vendor. This applies to Dell, Lenovo, HP, and anyone else with separate consumer and business lines, and also applies to laptops for everything but Apple.

apple makes good computers and they are worth the price

>>52356793
apple is by far your best bet

Dell Optiplex or other business-grade system. They are generally higher quality than consumer grade trash, and come with less bullshit installed.

Cheers, looking at these right now. Seems like a good option.

This. I run an optiplex 9010 sff and a latitude e6410 and couldn't be happier. I could have built a better tower, but this optiplex is tiny, has a quad core i7 and 16Gb ram, so I'm happy. The latitude is far nicer to use than my macbook. Weird getting used to the keyboard nipple though.

Building is better when possible but isn't always possible; e.g. when what you need is a laptop.

We so direly need open laptop and tablet form factor standards akin to those we've had in the generic PC world for decades (ATX, mITX, etc). Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could fix or upgrade your laptop with off the shelf components from your vendor of choice? How amazing would it be if you could build a laptop to perfectly fit your needs instead of having to settle with the concessions that today's laptops inevitably burden you with.

>Building is better when possible
So you use packet cake-mix and think that adding that egg makes you a chef.
But you're not buying a bake-house cake, are you? So that's good, isn't it?
You're also not making anything from scratch.
Selecting the raw ingredients and blending them.
I'll bet you don't even read the data sheets.

Even if you only use packet cake mix, at the very least you can read the ingredients list and know the actual level of quality of what you're buying. Premade mixes aren't really analogous to building a PC, however; it would only work as an analogue in the case that you buy your PC components as a pre-selected, mostly-inclusive kit. Which precisely nobody does.

Aside from that, building a computer entirely from scratch at this point is impossible for any particular human, at least if you want a computer as we know them now. I'm not sure that there's a solution for that either unless humanity suddenly decides that it's happy with reverting to 80s-level tech.
