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.

Thursday July 23rd

Slow or non existent broadband.

There is a major outage affecting all internet services on all ISPs across the UK.
Please do not ring in, as there is nothing anyone here can do to help you. All we can do is wait. I will post more later.
We do not know the cause yet, but three little letters - DNS - will be part of it. DNS is the child in the class that is always at the centre of any trouble!

Since the start of lockdown the vast majority of our customers have been very understanding of the difficulties of running a small business under the COVID19 regulations. Keeping customers and staff safe and trying to run the business has been a challenge, so a big thank you for bearing with while we haven’t been as efficient as usual.

Unfortunately we have had complaints.
As we can’t have more than one of us in the workshop at a time, staff had to be furloughed, workshop methods revised etc, so juggling phones along all the other work has meant some customers have had to wait longer than they would have liked. I take all complaints very seriously, as well as personally. I was thinking about how to address this until today.

If you don’t know already, my wonderful wife, Vanessa, owns and runs a Tea Room. I make no apologies for sharing her take on dealing with running a small business in the current climate, as she nails it in this video here.
