So often when we go into our local electronics store we come out either more confused than we started, having paid for a way more powerful machine than we need, or with a computer that simply doesn't do what we need it to do. That's where we come in. Although we do not have a big public store, or even a supply of computers here ready for sale, we will work with you to identify your exact needs, and find you the right machine for the job.
When you request hardware from us, we will look for the best computer for your use and provide you a quote based on what our suppliers have in stock immediately. Wherever possible we will find you an option with a 3 year warranty included, so you can be assured of at least a 3 year life span. We will also offer you the option to have us setup your new computer ready for you to simply use.
In addition to computers, we also supply Networked Security Cameras, Servers, Networking Equipment, UPS and many other computing peripherals.
What do I need to think about when buying a computer?
Processing Capacity (CPU) - for normal business use we would recommend at least either Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5. If you are doing any version of design, engineering, graphics or media type work, we would recommend at least an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7.
RAM - RAM is important for multitasking and can also be shared to the video card. For normal business use we would recommend looking at 8GB - 16GB, and for design use look at a minimum of 16GB - 32GB.
Harddrive - On the description this will either look like HDD or SSD. With servers and cloud technology often bridging the gap in storage space needed, Most people will only need 256GB - 512GB. Solid State Drives (SSD) are becoming more common, and are far superior in speed and robustness. As a result we will only recommend a machine if it includes a Solid State Drive.
Screen Size - When purchasing a laptop, most business uses find that a 15.6" screen is ideal - small enough to be mobile, but big enough to work on. If you are purchasing a desktop computer, you will also need to consider a separate monitor. Most business uses will look for a 24" monitor (or two). The key thing to consider here is to ensure that the cable supplied with the monitor will plug into your computer. There are a number of different connection types (VGA, DisplayPort, HDMI), and although you can get conversion cables, it's helpful to know this when you purchase. The other solution is to buy an All-In-One, which is most commonly found in at 27" screen size.
Video Card - For most normal uses of a computer, this is not an issue, but if you are looking for a computer for the purposes of design or media applications, then a dedicated graphics card suitable for the software being used will be required. If you are planning to change the video card, or add a dedicated graphics card, it is critical to ensure that the one you wish to add is also compatible with the rest of the hardware.
Optical Drive - More and more computers are no longer coming with optical drives (or DVD players). If this is required, you can either look specifically for a computer that does include it, or you can purchase a separate optical drive that connects via USB.
