    The key word being "like" a cool company. It's all a cynical act really!

    I dunno, you seem pretty cool to me.

    Free upgrade [which you didn't have to do], cool machines, prizes, jokes and 90% of the stuff Tom[?] said this morning on the phone was pretty cool... though he was probably thinking of someone else.

    Le EDIT: oh yeah. Our HT loves the glide, too.

    Yeah I thought that too:

    Me: "I saw this Geezer shooting 10 metres in the air on my way to work this morning"

    Colleague: "You saw what?!?!?!?"

    Tom needs to get his head checked. I think he may have banged it... I'm nowhere near as cool as he/you think I am.

    Well, it's working! Just been perusing the VeryPC website to see what they're all about, as we could do with some new computers in the staff room. 5 year warranty always goes down well in procurement discussions with SMT. The only downside with the site for me is that there are no indications of price range without getting in touch.

    Still, they seem like a cool company.

    I 100% agree with this.

    Even RM ~spit~ let you see how much things cost, even when you change the spec.

    Though, VeryPC are pretty good on price. Even if/when they're a bit more expensive, you get a 5 year warranty instead of the usual 3 years. So the extra is justified in my mind. [To a certain degree. A 50% price difference cannot be explained away as "an extra 2 years warranty"]

    Cheers @StevieM

    Shall I add you to our list to be @mentioned when we announce (very soon) that our new webshop is open? It is designed for home consumers primarily so will have the retail prices of our products on it but education and volume customers get a very significant discount off RRP. If you can't wait, PM @VeryPC_Tom_B and ask for a quote - he'll be very happy to oblige.

    I was thinking the same ref the Very PC Website - would be good to have it similar to Apple / Dell websites as far as If it has a default config then price is X and then you can click a configure button to customize the spec and as you add / remove items etc it adjusts the price accordingly so SSD vs HDD, Extra RAM etc etc

    As I wanted to look at the very pc slim notebook and what else you do and wanted to get an idea on price for the different lines you do ie laptop / desktop etc but could only see a few different variations of the same desktop / laptop you do but no price

    That sounds like a plan.

    Normally, if a website insists you make contact before you get any idea of a price I (cynically) assume that they have something to hide.

    However, seeing as we've already made contact and you come recommended, I'll be in touch as soon as I've convinced the head that new staffroom computers are even required.

    Check this out. Here's the design for the Stocktober T-shirts that will be awarded in addition to booby prizes and will be offered as a swap for normal prizes if you don't want/need what we pulled out of your box:



    The prizes you don't want will be posted in the classified section of EduGeek as free to a good home for whoever claims them first. We like to see kit being used by someone who needs it even when it seems not very useful to everyone else.

    I'll be PMing all the winners so far for your decision shortly

    Al

    [and yep - that is me. I designed a t-shirt with my own face on *wins pan-global biggest ego prize 2013*]
