PC Specialist Skyfire II
Member Name: NecroMunga
Advantages: A custom PC built to your needs and specifications
Disadvantages: Long delivery time
Having spent a lot of time trying to find a Laptop to replace my Desktop which I could no longer use I decided that the only route was to have one custom built for my needs.
A little more research and I came across PC Specialist and to be honest try as I might it was difficult to find a bad review about this company and this review is not going to be an exception.
I made several attempts to configure a Laptop on the Website but was unable to come up with the Specification I thought I needed and come within my budget of £1200. In a last attempt I rang the sales team and discussed my needs. The sales adviser looked at the quotes I had saved on the website then discussed my needs he then made several suggestions altering my specifications whilst assuring me that the Laptop would still meet my needs. The result a Skyfire II a higher specification laptop than the one I had been considering just outside my budget, but he then promptly offered me a discount which brought it in just below budget. I was well chuffed and promptly placed the order.
Then maybe the only downside of the experience the wait for delivery I had ordered my new Laptop and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The Laptop was delivered in just under 4 weeks which felt like ages but the company was upfront about delivery times and delivered on time.
I have had the Laptop since just before Christmas and all I can say is that it exceeds my expectations. The build quality is excellent the keyboard takes a little getting used to but is very positive and shows no sign of flexing that you get on a lot of laptops. The laptop sails through multitasking and I can play my games at full settings the first time I have ever been able to do this. The machine also offers a clear upgrade route so some future proofing.
I would recommend PC Specialist to anyone the buying experience has been a pleasure from start to finish the staff are knowledgeable and helpful and the finished product is excellent.
Summary: An excellent retailer a pleasure to do business with highly recommended
