Which computer is right for me?

Whatever personal computer youíre looking for, we have a wide range of PCs, laptops and netbooks to suit all your needs and every budget. Thereís also a wide range of PC and laptop accessories to choose from. Whatís more, you can buy in confidence, knowing that we have UK-based technical support, available 7 days a week.

When buying a computer, the first decision you need to make is whether you want a mini laptop, laptop, desktop PC or an all-in-one computer. Each of these offers their own benefits.

Mini laptops or netbooks

Mini Laptops or NetbooksThe main benefit of a mini laptop or netbook is portability. Theyíre extremely lightweight and have smaller dimensions than a laptop. This makes them ideal for use on the go. Mini laptops or Netbooks are great for browsing the web and sending emails to friends and family.

When buying a mini laptop or netbook, itís important to note that they do not come with a built-in CD/DVD drive. This means that any additional software you require will need to be downloaded. You can buy an external CD/DVD drive, which simply connects to an available USB port on your Mini laptop or netbook. We offer a range of drives suitable for all of our netbooks.

Laptops

LaptopsLaptops are portable without compromising hard drive size, processing speed or screen size. Ever-improving technology means that laptops are becoming more and more powerful and able to rival desktop PCs in terms of their processing speeds and power.

Our laptops offer a wide range of screen sizes and additional features, such as Blu-ray. If you want a laptop for multimedia entertainment, a larger screen is ideal, though if portability is important, we also have a range of smaller, lighter laptops. If you intend to be away from a power source for long periods of time, ensure that you choose a laptop with a long battery life.

When buying a laptop itís important to note that itís not easy to upgrade the hardware. Therefore itís worth buying the best specifications you can afford in order to future-proof your purchase.

Desktop computers

Desktop ComputersBy purchasing a desktop pc you are investing in a high-performance computer. Often this means that it has a more powerful processor, and a bigger hard drive than a laptop or mini laptop, allowing you to store more files. This is especially useful if you have large numbers of pictures or a lot of music on your computer.

A desktop PC also allows you to choose a monitor size that suits your needs, from a smaller screen for everyday use, to larger screens ideal for multimedia entertainment. We have a wide range of PC monitors available to suit all your needs and every budget.

A desktop PC is not portable, so will normally be located in one place in your home or office.

All-in-ones

All-in-onesThe main advantage of an all-in-one is space-saving, as all the components usually found in a desktop tower are built into the screen. All the ports and connections you would expect are also built into the screen, so none of the features of a desktop PC are compromised.

Many of our new range of all-in-ones are touch screen meaning that you can play music, scroll through pictures and perform many other functions simply by touching the screen.
