PCs and laptops

We sell both PCs and laptops, for home and for small business.

All PCs are custom built to the individual customers requirements, with PCs for basic internet and word processing at one end of the scale, right up to bespoke systems for CAD (Computer Aided Design), Photoshop work, and dedicated gaming machines.

We only use high end components from the more reputable manufacturers, which enables us to give all our PCs a two year, on site, guarantee. Some components within the built have individual guarantees that last even longer – for example, the memory we use carries a lifetime-of-the-PC guarantee. All our PCs include power supplies that conform to the 80 Plus standard, a certification that ensures the power supply meets a higher standard of build and efficiency than the norm. All of this means a PC from us will be more reliable and longer lasting than most off the shelf machines.

We only sell the premium brand laptops such as Lenovo and Asus. As with our PCs, using such manufacturers has proved very successful, as the warranty issues are few and far between. We don’t sell entry level laptops, as such machines, although cheap, tend to disappoint very soon after the users software is all set up. They tend to be running at full capacity all the time to keep up, and in combination with inferior build quality, result in a short lived product. All UK bought laptops come with a one year manufacturer guarantee, but we can upgrade this with guarantee packages to extend this cover two or three years.

All systems now come with an SSD (Solid State Drive) as standard. This new generation of drives has no moving parts and is much faster at dealing with data. Even on a standard office PC, this will mean a boot up time of around 10 seconds, with a 4 second boot an the CAD/Photoshop systems. We can still supply the standard mechanical drives if required, or as an extra where large volumes of data storage is required.

All our systems are quoted for to include all build costs, all software installation, data transfer and email etc transfer from an old system, and ESET antivirus/security. The system is then delivered and set up in your home or business, with any peripherals set up too. Basic training and guidance is then provided at that point. We also include 30 days’ worth of Remote Support access, meaning we can connect to you without the need to call in person, in order to help with any queries or training once the system is with you. We will also dispose of any old computer equipment for you, and arrange total destruction of old hard drives.

After sales is very important, so we are always at the end of the phone for any advice.

Trading hours w/c January 4th 2021

Happy New Year to all our customers.

UPDATE - Comments have been deleted and turned off due to attracting negative and/or insulting comments from COVID deniers!

Regrettably, we have been forced to keep the workshop closed this week due to COVID related or suspected COVID infections from contact tracing.
Until we all test negative, we can only trade in a limited capacity, responding to emails and phone calls only.
After that, with us now being in Tier 5, we will still not be able to fully open, but we will post more details later.

With Rob essentially working alone, and dealing with Remote Assistance all day, the phones will be engaged for 90% of the time.
Because of this, the best way to get a quick response is email. The phones have been very busy, and the voicemail is often full, so an email will get noticed, and responded too, more quickly.

I will update this site as and when we know more.

On the subject of COVID, please be very aware of the fake NHS texts and emails. These ask for bank details as proof of identity. Do not be tempted to respond.
UPDATE - just to clarify, the picture shown is of the FAKE text, so you can see what a FAKE looks like. It is not genuine, which is kind of the point of the post.

New Year trading hours.

There has been a necessary change to our trading hours in the new year. Because of COVID isolation, we are now unable to open the workshop or make any call outs until Wednesday 6th January at least. This only affects Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th so far, as we are closed for the New Year break until then anyway.

We will still be able to offer telephone support and Remote Support on the 4th and 5th, but no visits or customers calling into the workshop.
We can only open Wednesday assuming a negative COVID test. I will update this post when I know more.

I can only apologise for the inconvenience, but keeping this insidious virus at bay takes precedence over everything.

In the meantime, here is a photo of me preparing to venture outside to put the bins out.....

CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR TRADING HOURS.

It’s been a long and strange year for everyone. Many businesses have struggled. But we have been fortunate enough to be working in a field that has been in higher demand than ever. We’ve been busy, very busy.
This has meant long hours and missed days off or holidays for us all here.
So this year we are having a longer break than normal over the Christmas and New Year period, and support cover will be limited. There will be no routine home or business visits for two weeks. We have a colleagues local business covering any really urgent or business critical call outs.
We can answer most support requests by email, so this will be the best way of getting in touch during the break. We will reply in order of priority. Please only telephone in if it’s urgent.
