Why is that, do you suppose?

Here it's quite common; all of the big office supply chain stores and electronics stores sell at least laptop computers and usually a few desktop models. The prices are generally quite attractive, but they never seem to match the specs I'm interested in.

I'm a cheapskate. I want a computer to last me four years or more, if possible. That means paying more for it initially, but it costs less overall than replacing the computer every other year.
