Great computer, perfectly customised

Advantages: Completely customised PCs available. Good price. Ability to easily "post spec to forum" for advice
Disadvantages: Takes a couple of weeks to arrive
What seems like a long time ago (2005), I ordered a desktop from PC specialist. When I realised I needed another PC, I went straight back to their website, as I'd had a good experience then.
Now it's even better. Where the website was previously a little clunky, and you had to bank transfer money over, there's now a great interface and you can pay by all the usual cards etc.
The ability to fully customise every aspect of your PC is still there, and for me is the main attraction. An added bonus this time was the ability to click a "post to forum" button, which uploads your spec to the PC Specialist forum where other members advise on ways to save money, boost your spec for the same price etc. This saved me nearly £200.
Oh, and the small matter of the PC itself: great as always, exactly as designed, comes with all the original manuals etc. The price is good, the ability to customise is market-leading. It did take a couple of weeks to arrive, so if you need a PC "right now" then I guess you need to pop to a local shop. But that's only to be expected for a completely custom-built PC.
Next time I need a PC, I don't think I'll even bother looking elsewhere.
Summary: Very happy return customer; will be back next time.
