It has been over a decade since I have built a new system. I’ve just been doing laptops for years, and I’ve had no need to go out and build a system. I have frankenstein-ed together systems from old parts but not new ones, which makes me a little sad. One of the great joys in being a computer guy is the satisfaction of picking out your individual parts and putting them together yourself. There is a lot of pride when you do that for the first time and you learn a lot about how computers work. I think that we should make kids learn how to build a computer in middle school just so they have a basic understanding of the things that run the world now. It’s terrifying to me to talk to a twenty year old who doesn’t know how to identify a USB cable or still turns off their computer by pushing the power button.
Since schools don’t teach this to everyone, maybe any parents out there should take this sale as a starting point to teach their kids or themselves a bit more about computers by building their own. There is tons of material out there to help you figure it out!
