PC building

Concentrating on the local market (Ferndown, Bournemouth and Poole) we build PC's for business and the home specialising in small form factor PC's such as the Shuttle and Ideq which we consider to be some of the most stylish PC's to be found outside of the MAC range which we admire but it has too steep learning curve for those users brought up on the PC. We also stock a range of high performance laptops for Business and Education environments.
