I had owned my trusty HP Pavilion 1GHZ desktop computer since the turn of the century - (1999 to be exact, but turn of the century sound good doesn't it?) But, it was time to upgrade. I was quite happy with the machine taking the best part of whole morning to render my home videos ready to burn...

ConsNone so far

The ordering process was fantastic. The forums were a great place where advice is well thought out and the deal I got on my Vortex was brilliant. The ordering and amendment was very straightforward and logical. I also loved being able to check on the status of my order at all times, although for...

PC Specialist have an excellent website. The configuration options for a pre-built PC are varied without being too overwhelming, and you can narrow down the search right from the off by choosing the approximate price range. I have made the mistake in the past of ordering from a really cheap...

I bought a laptop from pcspecialist.co.uk in December 2007 and it hasn't worked properly EVER! It is now January 2009!!! They have the worst customer service and after sales service I have ever come across. They're incompetence is surpassed by none. This may seem like a lot to read, but if you're...

ProBuild a machine how you want it, Reasonable Prices

ConsNone that I can think of

I am always sceptical of purchasing goods from the internet when I have never heard of the company. Having owned numerous computers, I already had a monitor, operating system and peripherals so didn't want to be weighed downed by having to buy off the shelf with all of these included in the price...

PC Specialist seem to be really good value for money in relation to their specifications however the likelihood of having to spend so much more on righting their faults makes the overall cost huge. Their team aren't very helpful and do not sound at all interested on the phone. My experience with...

ConsCredit card surcharge.

When I decided to replace my desktop I chose pcspecialist.co.uk because the website allowed me to specify exactly what I wanted using quality components without the risk and anxiety of self-build. I might have chosen a different site if I hadn't checked the reviews and been warned off. I use my...

ConsGuarantees not worthwhile.

The reason I went to this company is due to the simply unmatchable amount of customisation available to their laptop builds. Layout & Design: The website was clear and easy to navigate, with prices being updated as you altered each component. Navigation: Navigation of this site is generally good...

I will divide this review into three sections - the first for PC Specialist as a company, the second for the laptop itself, and the third for a conclusion. PC Specialist: I bought a 15.6" Ultranote in October, as I was a new student at university and wanted a better and more portable laptop to...

I ordered my Inferno on the 4th of January, and unfortunately my build was delayed while new stock of the 120W PSU arrived. I chose an i7-3630QM, a higher wattage CPU. Most likely I'll never need that much processing power, but it wasn't much more than an i5, so I thought why not! Overall specs...
