Death of the Clone PC?

It looks like the clone pc builders are facing tough times. Laptop and Media Center PC sales are accounting for more than 50% of PC sales now. It's pretty hard for an OEM builder to build a box that will look comfortable in a livingroom. Could be a good time to be selling laptops though.

I built a PC for the first time in ages yesterday. It was a rebuild using a new case an old AMD XP 2400+ chip, motherboard and drives from a faulty unit. Installing Windows XP was the hardest part. It takes about 4 hours to get the install completed when you go through the SP2 update and all the security patches and applications.

Sounds like you need an updated XP disc.
