It depends on how bare you want them. Tigerdirect has a bunch of them. I've
bought three and have had excellent service from them.

Let me ask another question here. These barebones systems. Are they internet
ready but put together with the least expensive parts but set up to be 100%
upgradeable. Or are they missing one or two components . Like I am looking
at this one here
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?sku=s450-3051
but I see nothing on here about it having a hard drive in it.
That's the point of BAREBONE systems--they generally include just the
motherboard, CPU, RAM and case. Sometimes a floppy disk drive and/or
CD-ROM drive is included, but not in the system you presented.

You are expected to complete the system yourself (or via third party) by
adding a HDD, optical drives, and any other peripherals you desire.

It's like those taco kits you buy in the supermarket--they include the
shells and seasoning, but you supply the hamburger and lettuce.

To complete this barebone system, add:

* a hard drive
* a floppy drive
* a CD-ROM and/or CD-RW drive
* keyboard and mouse
* a monitor
* your choice of operating system

The motherboard already sports onboard video, audio and ethernet.
