3.5. Summary

Whether you want to assemble your own computer, or reuse an old desktop computer or even laptop, building your own Windows Home Server machine can save you some money over buying a packaged system. With the reuse option, you get the satisfaction of knowing that your formerly obsolete computer will stay out of the landfill for a while longer.

Computer hardware is a commodity market these days, and you can purchase high-quality products for low prices. You can assemble a computer from component parts, and while the total cost may not save you much if anything over buying a comparable packaged system, you can be assured of getting exactly the components and features you like.
