I agree you will probably save money if you build your own. Here's an example build:

Total before shipping and tax: 1032.93. And that's a pretty high end rig. If you're worried about actually building the thing, lifehacker has a decent guide. It's not that hard, I swear!

@Anarchi3cht: those little acers do lag on video purely because of specs, or at least mine did. They typically ship with GMA 950s, which can't keep up with HD video, especially when iTunes is using up 99% of the crappy Intel Atom CPU.
