    Misco get almost all mine - good prices, good kit, superb account manager (Mike Hinchliffe). Almost always next day delivery and the number of times they have sorted out warranty issues for me makes them almost priceless.

    For me now its limited

    But Previously at a school was Misco, BT Business Direct, a Local company called Casscom, Millgate. Majority of desktops where purchased direct from Stone although the have recently gone to Novatech (and I believe a little disappointed!)

    90% Misco who I've had a good relationship with at both this and the previous school. Novatech are our go to guys for bespoke builds, I think they might be getting most of our server/desktop orders in the future. Insight are used if Misco (vary rarely) can't supply and Ergo's Hardcase Pro's are about the only laptops I'd buy for student use. Then there's Axel for the thin clients and I think we've used CPL once or twice.

    Like most schools, we shop around. But we, like others, use CP Ltd. Joe is fantastic, and beats quotes of all competitors.

    We've just bought 100 new PC's, and as a gesture has upgraded the RAM for us on all of them.

    I think for me, a smaller company is better to use as they offer that 'personal' approach. I know if one of PC's is faulty Joe will do is utmost to fix the issue.

    Quadrant solutions, Equanet, Primo IT, Academia, XMA, IDN, Dell, Misco

    The first three get the lions share and that is due to the service from my account managers.

    Virtually nobody over the last 20 months due to the rebuild procurement although we are just starting to need to start buyign stuff again.

    We used BT Business religiously for many years but the AccMan Changed and it's went so far down hill we have given up.

    Not used misco in a long time as they seriously wound me up, mind you it was over a cisco ISDN2 line card when we were on 128Kb Broadband so that gives you an idea of the length of time ago that was LOL...

    So at the moment we are an open book, everything out for 3 quotes and see who we like. And anything over 1K has to go out for quotes anyway.

    Shop around depending on what we're looking for, but, some of who we use have already been posted.

    we used CCL for a long time as they are about a mile away from us so we could just go collect the odd bits, but we now use aria from manchester Aria PC - Computer Hardware, Components, Monitors.. at lowest prices, the builds they send us are fantastic and the cable management etc is superb and most of all great prices.
