To begin with all services will start with a diagnosis, this carries a charge of £25 which allows us to see what is wrong with the machine and the total price to repair it. The diagnosis tends to take around 48 hours and we will get back to you with the results as soon as we have them.

Once we receive your permission to continue we aim to get all repairs and services done in 48 hours (plus the delivery time of required components if we are out of stock) allowing us to get your laptop/desktop back to you with in 4 days (in most cases).

Prices vary depending on the required service, repair components and there are far too many for us to list. If you know what is wrong with the laptop you can request a quote from us for the desired repair here, please include the make and model of your laptop and the type of repair required with the request.

A laptop made by Lenovo

We sell both brand new and refurbished laptops. In our opinion if you are intending to spend less than £400 you are usually better off buying a refurbished laptop instead, this is primarily due to the decreased build quality of the laptops of the lower price ranges.

In our experience the best brand for a new Laptop is Lenovo, however new Laptops are released at a very fast pace so we generally recommend a different model each week.

If you would like to know more about the new or refurbished laptops we are recommending this week please contact us here.

A HP Desktop set
Office/Home Computers

If you would like a new PC to replace your unrepairable computer custom built, in our opinion, is the best way to go about it. In most cases all we require is the intended purpose of the machine, allowing us to get the best suited desktop for you, everyone requires a different computer as everyone's use is different. The best way for us to get you the best PC at the best price is for you to come into the shop and discuss it with us. We can build computers ranging from general purpose PCs to gaming PCs. Our large expertise allows us to include many items that a lot of shops can't including water cooling.

Alternatively you could always contact us with a maximum price and a purpose and we can get you the best possible PC for your money.

If you email us with an idea of the games you would like to play, whether you intend to stream them and whether you'd like access to VR we are more than happy to provide you with both advice and a quotation on the type of computer we'd suggest for it. We try to make all our gaming computers as future proof as possible and we design them to last as long as possible.

Refurbished Items

We are a registered Microsoft refurbisher and offer both refurbished Desktops and refurbished Laptops. As our refurbished items are constantly changing we do not have a list on our website and the best option is for you to visit our shop and discuss with us your requirements. All our refurbished goods come with a 60 day warranty.

The majority of our refurbished items come with either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64, however we do also stock items with other versions of Windows for special circumstances. All computers come with LibreOffice and Google Chrome installed by default and have previously been fully cleaned so there is no risk of receiving either viruses or data from the previous owner.

We normally keep a range of specs in store so we can help if you just need a normal computer for general use or a more advanced setup. If you find, within 1 week of purchase, that you require a more poweful computer we can credit the amount paid for the one purchased towards another.
