    Just out of interest are you going to bring out a Intel NUC based unit at some point?

    Its the new market leader in energy efficiency.

    I'm being forced to look at other suppliers like Tranquil PC at the moment but would rather stick with VeryPC as had good service in the past.

    however I did find this review: VeryPC Nano Sketch review | Expert Reviews
    Oooo that's annoying for you.

    Does your filter block ecommerce sites?

    And yes - a lovely recent review for the Glide, and also the Nano Sketch - both 5 stars! I'll be posting more about these in a couple of days.

    The filtering im on doesn't block ecommerce as ive got special permissions

    I'll send an email to our filtering company and see what they say.

    3. 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'.
    4. We also have an account with BT/Dabs that, when we log in, shows our discounted price. Possibility?
    5. BTW - I've already set up my new account!
    1. Ahhh thanks!
    2. It is based on an OpenCart template called 'MetroCart' that we have modified a bit. You can tell from the name of that template that it takes its inspiration from Windows 8.
    3. ^see point 2 above - as we are using OpenCart we do not want to meddle with the layout too much - we've done it this way because it works within the parameters we have without clawing apart the code.
    4. Currently being debated at VPCHQ... watch this space (maybe)
    5. I saw! I'm currently monitoring all webshop activity during the launch phase - I danced a little dance in my tummy when i saw your registration pop into my inbox.

    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.
    Yep - one of the hallmarks of the Broadleaf brand is the 5 year warranty at no extra cost. It goes with the whole sustainable and high quality thing and is made possible because we build the chassis ourselves, so are not reliant on 3rd party parts that might become unavailable.

    Broadleaf = 5 year warranty.

    Yep it's good isn't it? We went with OpenCart and a template so we could concentrate on the content and not get bogged down in coding the ecommerce from scratch.

    Fair comments, all, Al.

    Can I just check that the Rhinobooks are not customisable? Clicking on Customise/Buy adds it straight to the cart with no options available.

    Yikes! Will get that looked at immediately - thanks for the heads up.

    EDIT - this is corrected now - was an error with the way that our data import handles negative values. Appreciate the eagle eyed spot @Willott

    Indeed we are - I have the chassis in my hand now as I type (it's that small that I can type while holding it! - well, nearly). I'm just working on the branding.

    It will be a silent, fanless, uber-tiny super energy efficient wee beastie and is not far away - watch this space in the new year.
