Vortex II: 17.3" Laptop
Member Name: shelsley
Advantages: Built in the UK, easy to call and talk through questions, fast delivery.
Disadvantages: None so far..!
To start up a small engineering business I needed a PC to run some high end CAD/CAM software from Delcam. Deciding on a Laptop to take off site and work from home I tried the usual shops but ready built ones didn't have the spec suggested (and a place i've used before for custom builds [D**L] were far from helpful on the phone and apparently not even built in the UK anymore) so after a websearch and reading reviews found PC specialists. Online speccing was easy and when i called up to check the quote was what i needed before i placed the order the chap on the phone was helpful and knowledgable (having worked on the shopfloor build side for quite a while before being let loose on the helpdesk) so it was ordered (fastrack) and delivered in about 5 working days. It might be overkill but I went for 16GB of RAM and i7 2.5ghz processor with the highest spec 2GB graphics card available, which might explain why the battery life isn't the longest I have ever known.
Wish i had gone for a large HD than 120GB, it soon fills up with programs..!
Great communication all the way through, notification at every stage of build/test/despatch.
Courier arrived right in the middle of the 1 hour window specified.
Very Happy and would recommend to anyone.
Summary: Would definately recommend to anyone buying a new PC.
