Default Ever heard of a Microsoft Signature PC?

Found this quite by accident https://signature.microsoft.com/

This is from the first tile:

Many new PCs come filled with lots of trialware and sample software that slows your computer down—removing all that is a pain, so we do it for you! Every PC the Microsoft Store sells is put on a software diet and performance is tuned to run the best it can.

We call this process Microsoft Signature.
Tile 2:

Every PC we sell at the Microsoft Store comes with Microsoft Signature. Performance tuned and handcrafted. You’ll love it!
The prices seem rather high so I guess you'd be paying more for a PC since it isn't subsidized by the established vendor supply chain.

I don't think I'd pay that much for a PC. I'd rather run PC Decrapifier.

Thoughts?

If I could get a notebook that looked like the stealth bomber, I'd pay a little extra. What do you think that is, Asus, Dell?

Heard of them, Yes. Buy one? Of course not. I'd rather build my own system if the goal is speed.

I don't actually think the prices are terribly high, either. All of the systems are fairly decent systems, with semi-high end specs. They're all pretty close to what I would expect to pay.
