    I know, that's what I'm confused about... Surely, as the OLD version, Win7 should be cheaper than 8.1.

    What are you using? It looks fine with Chrome.

    Just been speaking to our sales manager @VeryPC_Tom_B about this exact thing.

    We've decided that EduGeek users WILL qualify for the education discount if currently working in education IT. All you need to do is tell us your EduGeek username and your contact details at the school/college etc that you work for and we'll sell you as an individual the computer you want at the edu discount price (which is pretty hefty btw).

    Like the sound of that?

    Does it also apply to stuff that ISN'T on the shop? [Seriously, EDUdiscount on a gaming PC is likely a massive chunk of the cost off. Enough to get MOAR GRAFIKS!]

    We get 7 and 8 at the same price from distribution (give or take a few pennies), so you get them at the same price from us. We don't add a premium for the new OS. To MS a license is a license essentially.

    Yep - all VeryPC made products (which is all the computers basically) will be included, not just configs you can make on the shop.

    The amount of configurations we can offer is too vast to cram into a single online shop, so we only list for example a single i3, i5 and i7 CPU for each PC rather than the true gamut of processors available (wanna keep it simple for our home users). Configs outside the short list of options available on the shop are totally available if you contact us.

    GTG - I have a video to film on another thread!

    Like it? I love it! And I am looking at getting a new home PC in the New Year so this is good timing!

    Tiles with at the top remind me of the whole Windows 8 thing. Simple and effective.

    Having the Education Discount notice in bright pink and white makes it really obvious. However, I would remove the grey bar just above it, adding the phone number to the pink box and moving the Search tool to the menu after 'Reviewed'.

    There seems to be a massive space at the bottom afte the footer though
    There is a space, but it doesn't appear too big; about the size of the scrolling graphics.

    We also have an account with BT/Dabs that, when we log in, shows our discounted price. Possibility?

    Hey, nice looking site!
    Its got the VeryPC roominess feel to it.

    I can finally show people where they can get a VeryPC computer like the new ones we have in school from. Laser etched cases are a winner - its all people want to know about when they see them in our school.

    5 year warranty on retail?

    Hey @VeryPC are you really offering a 5 year warranty as standard on the broadleaves?
    That's an amazing offering - even trumps the customer service kings, Richer Sounds, who charge you a small, reasonable fee for their 5 year Supercare.
