Build A Computer

Monday, July 13, 2009 at 7:17 PM
So I finally delivered the computer that I built for Grace's parents...and I'm really regretting doing it for them. It's not that it took a lot of time or cost me anything. It's just that..I'm afraid the computer will fail in some unforeseen way, and then Grace's parents will think that they made a bad decision in asking me to build their computer. See, the computer worked fine for a week while I used it. But what if a random hard drive error occurs? Well then it would be "my fault". In an OEM computer, the customer can go back to the OEM company and ask for repairs/fixes. However, if a home built computer breaks, then it's up to the builder to fix it. Which would be me.

It's not that I'm unwilling to fix the computer. It's that I'll be in Boston (759 miles away). Thankfully, I just checked Dell's website, and their computers come with a limited warantee for only one year. And really, what are the chances that my home built computer will fail in one year? *knock on wood*

Grace: Your parent's computer will be fine. I'm just being extra careful here.
