    Thanks

    I can add a +10 for Stone.
    I've used them at my secondary school for the last 2-3 years. All stations very high quality, 5yr on-site next business day warranty (which we've not used a great deal of, but when it has been needed it's been excellent)

    I've used them in a couple of our Primary Schools too.

    Honestly nothing negative I can say about them!
    Give Jamie a ring on 01785 285648 - tell him MarkB from Cornwall sent you! (We might both get a discount!)

    Nothing bad to say about Stone at all, we had an issue with them at one point but we sorted it after some long telephone calls.

    Their base units however are the best of quality and I'm currently using one!

    good machines

    i have found stone computers to be the best so far, they tend to use intel m/boards, which are dull, and dependable. no real problems here, the only thing i would say is try and go for full size atx desktops if poss, as smaller ones tend to run hotter.
    At the schools i have worked at we have had problems with voltage surges, up to 265 volts some days, and these desktops have always taken the stick, whilst others fell down dead, and were replaced by stone pcs.

    Always highly rated their technical support. The few times I've had to call them in the past, they've been helpful and not forced me to go through "The script" with them, when diagnosing faults.

    Not had to call them for about 3 years though.

    Agreed, their support is excellent. You speek to a human being, and if you tell them to fault stems from a certain component they'll send and engineer (next day) with that component.

    Speak to Jamie Stewart, he's a nice chap (if a bit strange).

    +1.

    Their engineers are always nice chaps, too. Makes a big difference.

    Another vote for Stone here

    Sometimes you may pay a little extra but the support is 2nd to none! If you need it that is

    Bought from Stone Computers for a number of years now. PC's, AV installs, Printers, Laptops etc etc. Never had a problem Hardware solid and reliable. Any issues resolved quickly with excellent after sales support both technical and from a customer service point of view.

    Support is 2nd to none, but they have a habit of choosing componants which dont work well together. We are onto batch number 3 of which the keyboards regulaly dont get picked up. Really starting to get on my wick as thats what i pay them for; so that I dont have to worry about compatibility issues, flashing BIOS' etc.

    It may just be me but on paper my stone workstations are absolute flying machines, in real life they are pretty god damn slow!

    We bought 12 stone PC's last year and as of yet they are pretty impressive and not had to ring up for any hardware support as of yet - 4 or 5 year warranty with all PC's as standard I think.
