PC arrived on the expected date along with the PC speakers I ordered. PC was easy to setup. Only problem was that the speakers don't work. They are not powering up. Checked the fuse in the plug and it's not gone.

Bought a basic preconfigured PC for my elderly parents to replace a defective machine which took them offline and unable to manage bills & shopping etc.. Delivered in one working day. Awesome. And as always worked flawlessly out of the box. This is my 5th Machine from PC Specialist in 16 years, 3 for myself and 2 for family members.. I wouldn't buy a machine from anywhere else. They just work straight out the box.Good Job.

It is a powerful machine that can be used for a variety of tasks, like web development, gaming, some light video editing, and hasn't even been stuck at the "not responding" issue I used to have with more heavy apps (Chrome and Android Studio), except when running on power saving (which is to be expected, and even then, only for a maximum of a few seconds). And even the weight is a reasonable factor considering the specs I put in, only the physical size is a bit hard to find a bag for, but as it just fits in my old one, I was able to carry it with me to class. The weight was still okay for commuting (laptop, charger and some small accessories), but I would not recommend carrying it on your back all day long. The keyboard also looks very pleasing when in use, and no complaints whatsoever about the brightness (although I would have liked a per-key backlit RGB keyboard to help me with the massive amount of shortcuts I work with, but that is due to personal preference and can be overcome by attaching a USB per-key backlit keyboard, and since my use case is pretty specific, I don't think this will be a major issue for other users)

I would also recommend when you order 2 batteries (which I did, keep in mind such devices need a lot of power) swapping them out on a regular basis, that way, you keep both of them in a fairly good condition.

The design is minimalistic but still very pleasant to look at, and the dent for the power jack and screen ports almost feels like a little handle to prevent it from slipping out of your hands.

The speakers do their job perfectly with clear sound, and actually are able to still play a good quality when the lid is closed thanks to the design (facing upwards and towards the user) which makes it also a perfect machine for just background music. Many other laptops have this issue as the main speakers are entirely covered by the lid.

Thank you for the laptop you built and delivered just before Christmas, a present for my daughter.
Once again I was very satisfied with your excellant service and my daughter is delighted with it.
This was one of many computers supplied by PCSprecialst over the years. Their quality is great and when I have needed technical support, often when the warranty had expired, it has alway been second to none.
Many thanks to all the team,
John

Ordered my new PC from PC Specialist after being recommended to by a friend. What can i say. What a really great company to deal with. Fabulous web site full of info easy to navigate. Very professional in everything that the do, easy to contact, very prompt with their replies. My computer may not be of the most advanced spec available but i can honestly say that im 100% happy with what they built for me. Would certainly buy from PC Specialist again.

I Just bought an excellent PC.
The PC SpecialistWeb page is an excellent starting point from which to start the configuration process, the process is guided ad very transparent.
Once configured I decided to commit to purchasing
My decision was supported by my very positive first impression from the web site and I finally committed on learning that PC Specialist are Quality Certified to ISO 9001 Standards
T he adherence to a Quality system was also very noticeable at every stage of the process.
I enjoyed the fact that transparency was very prominent in all my interactions.
Once an order was placed there were both constant and timely status reports
As a customer I wasn't left guessing as to what was happening with my order.
Once the order was confirmed I could follow the assembly process and testing right up to dispatch I was even able to look over the shoulder of the testing engineer.
Who also provided feedback via the my order status area of the webpage, excellent stuff.


Their choice of courier DPD also instills further confidence in the product which arrived well packed and in a timely manner
On unboxing the absolute attention to detail is immediately apparent.
As expected the setup and commissioning of my new PC was an effortless and enjoyable
Event. I immediately took on an air of Proudness and congratulated myself on this fine choice of Built to orderPC provider. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending PC Specialist to anyone whatsoever.
I would not hesitate one second before ordering fromPC Specialist again, and will strongly encourage all others to give PC Specialist close consideration.
I am very happy and if I compare the PC they built for me to a motor car, it would be a Mercedes Benz.
Thank you!


Stephen Ward.

I've had my Desktop build for a few weeks now and I'm very pleased with it. Configuring my PC on the website was easy and educational. I swapped components around three times after submitting my order and doing so was trouble free. The delivery was on time and the build quality is great.

I have just placed My order with PC Specialists and I couldn't of asked for a better service. Spoke with two advisors via email and live chat and they have been nothing but informative and professional. Credit where credit is due and these two gave me the confidence to place my order.

First class customer support and service. Ordered my PC and to my surprise was built a lot faster than expected! (Obviously depends on how busy they are) I had previously asked for a Saturday delivery not expecting them to be so efficient. They politely changed the date of delivery to my needs and shipped the PC early! Would highly recommend this company.
