Viglen were not the only supplier to have that problem. In fact google around for PSU issues with HP and Dell to. HP's were even more impressive in their explosions than Viglen's were - some cracking Youtube vids of that That was purely down to these OEM's being duped into buying cheaper components to manufacture their hardware (and even then I'm sure Viglen don't manufacture their own PSUs) - components which were defective due to alleged industrial espionage.

You're 100% right, that it isn't viglens fault that our school purchased under specced machines.....however, by selling the system to an assistant head and telling him that these machines, with 256mb Ram(!!) three years ago, were top spec smacks of pushing out old kit just to get rid of it. Not the best customer service I would say. 1 year warranties aren't much better either.

I am a chief report at MicroScope - weekly trade publication for computer resellers and retailers - and I have just posted a story about Sir Alan Sugar's resignation as chairman at Viglen.
Thought this may be of interest to some of you
