I suppose I should add here that my friend's Orb worked quite crappily,
and Orb treated him crappily in trying to get it replaced, and then get
his money back.

But I should also note that that particular computer had the power supply
replaced twice, the hard drive twice, the motherboard four times, ...

MicroCenter treated him like crap too. But he got an in-store credit out
of them and is selling his new Coppermine system on eBay to build himself
a new box. :)
