No, it wasn't a Dell or HP assembly line employee or a Windows expert. Just a member of a disappearing profession called journalist and
chow hound.

A new record has been set at an annual competition to build a computer as fast as possible.

Journalist Stephen Fung put a PC together in just over four minutes at the Build Your Own PC Race for Charity in Las Vegas.

Contestants had to pack identical components into computer cases and connect their machines to the organiser's network.

You can read about and view videos of the race to build a computer at the winner's website linked below.

Congrats, Stephen!

That is fast!! Smokin!!
It usually take's me 2 to 3 hours to shop for the components.
Then, an hour or two to put them together.
Impressive!
