I have been going on about it for a while in the various competition threads we run, but the time has finally arrived. Our online shop is open and ready for business. From an online transaction point of view it is aimed at our home user customers, which is why the prices are full retail, but we still offer our significant discounts to education and volume purchasing customers like the IT techs and managers of the EduGeek community (like it says on the shop, just give us a call for a discounted quote).
Whilst we don't expect schools, businesses etc to do their buying through the webshop, we do think that it will act as a really useful tool for you to browse our computer products and get a rough idea of the prices of the different units and configurations of each. Most of the products listed have loads of configuration options so you can see how the price is affected as you adjust the spec before you decide to contact us for your discounted quote. If the spec you are looking for isn't one of the online options though, just get in touch with us and we'll do you a custom quote matching your specific requirements. We can customise a computer any way you like (within reason!), so it would not have been practical to list every single possible option online.
You can take a look for yourself right now at shop.very-pc.co.uk- if you feel like it, we would really value your feedback at this early stage to help us tweak it to perfection.
...and before I forget, I promised that I'd mention a few of you in the webshop announcement post so that you get a notification and don't miss the launch, so @mac_shinobi @hardtailstar @Rawns @X-13 @StevieM come on down!

Can I just clarify. Are you saying that the educational discounts are for products bought for school use, or do you mean that because you are incredibly nice, you are offering discounts to EG members for products purchased for home use?
For 'home' shoppers, is there a way to enable prices 'with' VAT rather than without?
Edit: Ignore me. I opened a product and see it has 'with' Vat prices too.
Is there a 'Discount code' field at checkout where if you put in 'BRING ME THE BOX!' you get an additional 98% off?
We wanted to lead with ex.VAT as we realise that most of our early browsers will be folks like you from schools and businesses etc, but of course the inc.VAT is there on each product page as you spotted.
For that discount code you should get it for free surely, but fired at you through a giant cannon across the skies of Britain.
