The only reason i use this place...

AdvantagesDown the road (i live in coventry)

DisadvantagesMight as well be in Australia for support

"...is i live in the same town. And even then as a last resort. Get the picture?! Ok, ok, you want reasons: 1) No support, even if you turn up in person! 2)They GLUE IN components, for "warranty purposes" you're more likely to break the components than remove them for upgrade. 3) A little story: My friend bought an Athlon XP2000+ system. It died after a few days. Being a computer enthusiast (ok, nerd!), i knew what he problem was (incompatible ..." Read review
