So, basically, you are not paying for the system, but the 1 year of technical support and in home warranty for the system.

Sad part is...

Most businesses would find this system reasonable and perfectly do-able.

Let's look at it though - most businesses don't need a work horse system for gfx or gaming. So, for your spreadsheets, documents and daily emails, internet, this would be fine. HOWEVER, at that price no.

Is that a complete joke? Sounds like it.

'Extended' one year warranty. :p haha

I would expect no less than 2 years rtb warranty on a computer.

I bought that system nearly 3 years ago and it still cost me less than that. Sigh.

I used to work right across the way (Actually a parking lot and a small field) from that place. Very non descript. You walk in their front doors, nobody around, all in the back behind closed doors. Nice entry way though, but very pricey systems. You wouldn't know it from a regular business if you didn't know what they did there.

Without even bothering to look, you could self-build that for about $500 if not less

Crazy money

Well I just did one from the same place I bought mine (seen above), for roughly the same money and here is what I could get today for what I spent 2 years ago:
