PC instruction schools expand on classes started in factories

Fujitsu is going to offer build-your-own computer classes to customers in Japan. The Hands-on Custom PC Assembly Service will teach absolute beginners how to build their own computer, as well as fundamental knowledge about its inner workings, and to perform computer support tasks themselves.

Prospective students will be able to choose from 19 computers across four ranges, including both desktop PCs and notebooks. Processor, system memory, and other options can be further customized, with all of the parts supplied in a dedicated parts box, except for the motherboard, which is pre-installed and pre-wired to the case and power supply.

The service will run in over 100 "PC instruction schools" across Japan, as an extension of the PC assembly workshops that have been running in the Fukushima and Shimane manufacturing plants for the last 8 years. Under the Fujitsu Open Classroom College, engineers will be on hand to assist with problems during builds as well as teach the construction process.

Although the price is not mentioned, it will likely be at a premium to what the computer would normally cost straight from the factory. Computers built at the classes are examined at a Fujitsu production facility before being delivered to the customers, and come with a three year manufacturer's extended warranty on top of the conventional one year warranty.

It is unlikely that Fujitsu would expand the service to other territories, due to the need for inspecting customer builds at a factory. [via Bit-Tech]
