yes, that's the same guy I deal with. Small world!
I've just had an email from Stone to say my machines will arrive on Monday. This is the 4th or 5th time that has been promised, so I will see if they do arrive or not. If not, I am cancelling and looking elsewhere.
We use IML Technologies.
They are exceptional. I dont know where you are based, but our account manager is Mak Khosse, he is a good bloke aswell.
Have you looked at the Acers......a lot still come with dual load options with both Windows 7 Professional and Windows XP Professional.
Well Stone have finally delivered, just 6 weeks after I placed the order. To be honest, I was starting to hope they wouldn't so that I could start afresh with another supplier.
Have a chat with Dan at WStore. He's on Edugeek. We recently got a good deal on HP's with downgrade rights to XP.
