hardware support, proprietary hardware (depends on model), and in my experience, non-existant technical support.

I agree. Generally brand name computers do't allow overclocking but I'm not sure if you'd want that. I kinda disagree with Frollard in a sense as well because if you build your own computer the tech support is yourself. I'm assuming Frollard meant by from someone else though so this would not be a problem.
