Effective January 1st 2017, due to the economic market conditions, it is no longer cost-effective for us to offer our own range of custom-built desktop solutions.
We have always strived to offer our customers the best value for money possible but the rising cost of components and operating system software means we cannot justify charging customers a premium for providing our own systems when we can get similar products for less money.
We have undertaken a review of our business practices and taken the decision to offer and promote the Lenovo brand of products in future. Having previously used and sold Lenovo laptop products to customers in the past, as well as using them ourselves, we have always been impressed by their build quality and reliability - to date we have experienced no system failures with this brand.
Although other manufacturers are available, the overall Lenovo hardware solution meets or exceeds all of the requirements we previously had when supplying our own brand of systems - high-quality components, excellent build quality, proven reliability and manufacturer back-up in the event of pre- and post-sales support.
Whilst we will supply a base unit based on Lenovo's own standard system build, we continue to offer upgrades where possible to further improve upon your purchase and all systems will still include the same basic pre-delivery setup as we have always offered which covers the installation of all relevant or required Microsoft updates, updates to hardware device drivers such as motherboard, audio, video and other components, the removal of 'bloatware' and other unrequired applications and also the clean-up and optimisation of the system to ensure it is running to its absolute optimum at time of initial delivery. This is an extra service we provide above and beyond those of many other system resellers, and helps to ensure your system is ready to use as soon as you receive it rather than needing to waste time downloading and installing additional updates and features.
We also offer an onsite installation service for customers in the Hampshire and Wiltshire regions, which includes the transfer of documents and other data from your old computer onto the new system, setting up Internet connections, installing printers and a basic system tutorial for just £50 inc VAT.
