Not quite sure I understand.

What I was saying was that if Linux Emporium, instead of sourcing all their
components individually and assembling them, could merely do a deal with
somebody like DSG (ie. PCWorld, Currys) and get the machines "whole" then
install a disc image on the hard drive and ship them out again as Ubuntu
machines would the price come down?

If so, why aren't they doing it?

And if not, why not?
