My current Windows desktop computer needs to be replaced. My budget is $1,000 to $2,000 USD just for the desktop unit itself.
I don’t want an off the shelf unit from a Best Buy type store. Also, there’s no one here in my small community that is available to build one for me.
Would you please tell me where I might buy a new computer online that offers at least some degree of customization? Is Dell worth considering these days? Someone else?

This thread on FM has some links to Dell configurations at ~$1700. Depending on your use (and if the discount is still there) it might be a reasonable option. You can do some configuration changes as well.

I have purchased several computers from Puget Systems. While probably out of your price range you can customize them and get a lot of help from knowledgeable techs before purchase. Each system is very carefully tested before shipment to you including a thermal scan to identify any possible hot spots. They have all been rock solid. I am currently using a Puget system from 2016 or 2017 that still works well for 50-60 MP images. For a Windows laptop, I would go with Dell.
