Walter, what you do is 100% awesome, and all the VARs I've worked at in the past 6 years have done this.

Master Build on a HDD with a clean OS and base apps installed, like FCS 3/ FCP7. Enter in master SN, perform updates. This drive is then cloned to every system that needs it. When FCP launches, it realizes that the CPU has changed, and you enter serial number. Viola. Shaves hours off system builds. Also allows for swapping of drives if you suddenly need a CPU to work as if it were another machine.

To streamline this even more, we have a hardware cloner, that clones drives bit by bit via a physical hard drive duplicator. Rock Solid. In a pinch, I've used Carbon Copy Cloner as well.
