Yes they kitted out our whole school last year and so far the kit has been very robust, and has held up better than several toshiba laptops I wouldn't buy from ebuyer though I'm still waiting for my 2 servers 4weeks after placing the order. Go direct with them it's much easier and you'll save a bit as well.

That looks rather a lot like the rebadged Clevo that sits on my desk at work. In terms of build quality, they're adequate. It's relatively light and the keyboard isn't the worst that I've seen on a laptop. The touchpad is pants but then I've never seen on on a non-mac which isn't. They don't say what the resolution of the screen is but with a 740m gpu and at £569 I'd put money on it being 1366x768. However Clevo do offer a 1080p screen as an option so it might be better than that.

Got a link? I can't see it on your website.

Sorry, rather embarrassingly not up there yet; I gather big Al will be completely changing the product area for mobile solutions soon, but at the moment the Ultrabook is a well kept secret..! At the moment I have my marketing PDFs and such like that I can send by email. If anyone's interested feel free to contact me by email or give me a call.
