Ordered a slightly different upgraded laptop and approached several other supplier. Only supplier to offer good answers and quote delivery time. Good follow up before delivery and delivered on time.
Excellent supplier of high quality laptops. Will use them again when we buy more IT kit.
We have ordered about 9 laptops from PC Specialist and each time they have been excellent quality and very competitive prices.
Will be using them again.
The service I receive from Pc Specialist is outstanding, the speed and after sales are excellent.
I wanted to buy a high performance laptop and I couldn't find one in other shops that would match all my needs. I always needed more memory or graphic drivers. In the pc specialist web site, I could personalize all the features of the laptop with a reasonable price. I needed the laptop as soon as possible, so I paid the fast delivery and the laptop was delivered in less than a week.
Firstly the delivery did take some time but was still reasonable considering the product is built and tested from scratch and i was kept well informed of its status. The product itself is well put together (and even well packaged). I am more than pleased with the laptop as it performs as i expected, i ordered a very fast laptop and thats what i got. Its been a pleasure to use so far. Thanks.
PC Specialists came to my attention through friends who had already purchased their computers from here, they came highly recommended. I purchased a high spec computer and still received a quick build and delivery time.
I am an industrial designer using 3D modelling and rendering programs,I am still exploring the capabilities of my new machine, but have had no performance issues so far.
I was unable to find a laptop that I liked in the usual places (PC World, Dabs etc.) that matched the specs I wanted. PC Specialist allowed me to specify my own build, which allowed me to use an SSD (not bothered about hard drive space!), relatively modest but decent Intel CPU, 14 inch monitor, decent but not unnecessary amount of RAM.
The best bit was that I was able to specify that I didn't want an OS installed! As a Linux user, that was £79 saved on the Windows license which is usually imposed on you by everybody else!
Yes, I had to wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive -- but I was updated by email at each step of the build, and I was able to follow the progress on the website. It actually arrived a couple of days prior to the estimated date. Bonus points for using a reliable courier service!
Really happy with everything. The website couldn't be clearer, and the only other way I could have got the PC i wanted was by buying the components separately and building it myself (and who really enjoys doing that?). If I ever need any upgrades or accessories, I know where I'm going!
Very pleased with my custom built laptop; SSD, i3 processor, 4GB 1600mhz Ram, Windows 8 and Office all for £500. BARGAIN.
Would never buy a branded pre-built laptop again. Chassis is very good quality, looked the part, plus it was nice and fresh from startup - no clean install required, no bloatware, all the right drivers preinstalled. Thing starts up so quick it nearly turns on before you press the on button.
Very impressed. Plus they use DPD. Quality courier.
Couldn't ask for any more - an easy to use website, a good range of components so I could build exactly what I wanted, great communication as the order was progressed and everything arrived in a perfect condition.
First time I'd ordered from PC Specialists and I have to say a pretty good experience. First problem I faced was that I tried to order items for my client. I was paying, delivery to my client - which their online system doesn't allow. A quick call to them, they explained if I pay via bank transfer, they can send the items to the client. Easy. Ordered Monday, Paid Tuesday, hardware was in the client possession Friday. My only negative, if there could be a negative - is that I ordered a solid state Micro-PC and an additional USB Wifi Unit. It arrived and worked fine, but Windows didn't recognise the USB WIFI without installing drivers... which was a bit of a pain with no CDRom Drive in the unit - cue lots of running around looking for a USB pendrive to download drivers etc. Apart from that, faultless!
I used PCSpecialist to create my new gaming PC and I must say I'm delighted with the outcome.
The times they said were spot on, when selecting parts the websites would give tips when trying to move on and you could change something. This case doesnt support built in memory card reader etc, also wether or not the power supply I put was too much or not needed. Delivery used a DPD which gave a accurate time for when the parcel arrived (good since I work weekdays).
I've now had the machine for about a week and with a few personal touches I am very pleased with the outcome.
Whilst there are a few companies trying to do what PC Specialist do, they're the store I keep coming back to when I want a bespoke build, rather than an off-the-shelf PC.
It was delivered within the time estimated, there are a great selection of parts, highly recommended.
wide choice with a very user friendly website, machine is working well so far.
