    An intentional "sparkeh" in this case.

    Yeah, I know, I just wanted to read the Edugeek bit. And when I saw the typo, I couldn't just leave it although I did try...honest!

    What could you offer if I said:

    Do me a £1000 (excl VAT and Edu Discount) @VeryPC branded Gaming PC. I think it would be quite cool. I do not need a monitor or keyboard/mouse.

    Thanks

    Replied - Not that I have the £££ currently but was asking more out of general curiousty. Hopefully 8gb of RAM, 240gb or 512Gb SSD ( was thinking Samsung 840 Pro or possibly an Intel SSD ), Reasonable CPU and Mobo and wanted most of the money to go on the Graphics card ( whatever is better between Nvidia or AMD / ATI )

    Did anybody else let out a loud gasp, followed by a long, slow drooling sound when they first read this?

    I'm still in two minds about getting a small laptop for the front room to learn coding and play indie games (which also means more time with the Mrs!). I was comparing the 14" and 15" Thinbooks (both customised with i5's and 120GB SSD's) and am confused as the 15" build is cheaper then the 14"? I've been through the spec and the only difference is the screen size. Am I missing something?

    Hi @Rawns, I can help you here. The 14" is out of stock until early March (I've asked if we can show this on the web store to avoid any unnecessary disappointment), and price wise, the cost of 14" screens is more expensive than 15" screens at the moment explaining the price difference.

    The 15" Thinbook has an additional USB 2.0 port, a numeric keypad, and a fantastic screen resolution upgrade making the difference in specification though, so in my mind the 15" represents pretty awesome value for money. If you want to play games, I'd recommend the 15" with IPS screen matey.

    Nope - it just works out that way with the pricing from our parts suppliers at the moment. It surprised me at first too, but that's the way it is right now. We'll be recalculating the webshop prices soon so we'll see if it continues like this.

    Remember that EduGeeks in education IT get the edu discount for personal purchases too, so contact us for a quote to see how much you can save (!!! I sound like Barry from Barry's Discount Carpet Warehouse here: "deals Deals DEALS! Come on down this Saturday and see how much you can save! Must end Saturday! My hat just exploded!")

    Cheers chaps. Thought it could be something like that. The 15" would be the preferred choice anyway.

    Out of curiosity then,would you be able to send me a quote on the 15" Thinbook base build, upgraded with an i5, 120GB SSD and no O/S please?
