Looking for major PC Vendors with Threadripper?

From what I have been able to find, Alienware had exclusive rights to sell Threadripper based PC's last year. I have found a couple of boutique vendors such as Titan and Origin PC who let you build a Threadripper based PC, but haven't been able to find any configurations from major vendors such as HP or Lenovo selling Threadripper desktops. Does anyone know if these vendors are planning on releasing any highend TR units in the near future? I am looking to replace my now aging 3930K workstation, and after years of doing custom PC builds would like to just have the simplicity of buying a prebuilt unit. Also, I am in Canada so it seems like the selection is even more limited.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Boxx.com has custom workstations, some with Threadrippers.

EDIT: Sorry, I should read better. There are several boutique venders, as you said, that will build you a system with Threadripper.

Is there any particular reason you need a major vendor to make it? My company almost exclusively uses Dell or Apple for corporate purchasing so I can guess that Dell is not on your preferred provider list.

surprisingly you can get a cyberpowerpc system through walmart https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/cyberp...-1920x-35-ghz-processor-english/6000197586439
bestbuy.ca has their CLX line that has a bunch of threadripper options: https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/Seller.aspx?&Seller=438301

Thanks for the replies, guys. The reason I am interested in a major vendor like HP is that my brother has had such great luck with them and their in home service. After the last year of non-stop computer issues, I would just like the piece of mind that knowing if something goes, it will be replaced promptly with as little downtime as possible. I use my computer for 3DSMax rendering, so the Threadripper 1950X looks to be a great fit and a good upgrade from my 3930K system.

Avadirect has a few Threadripper workstations (maybe desktops too, didn't look), as well as epyc servers and workstations.

I'd second BOXX, I deal with them personally at work for some of our high-end simulation needs, and I've gotten next day parts delivered (had a couple SSD's go down, luckily, RAID1, so nothing lost), and fantastic customer service from them every time I've needed it.

I definitely wouldn't write them off simply because their not HP or Dell.

As you have the experience, you are much better off building your own one more time. I have been building Pc's for years and have never seen a major vendor or custom vendor PC that's assembled with the same care and precision of a rig built with my own hands.
