    I think it is yes, i looked for the spec but my collegeue said he did not think they had put it on their website yet. Apparently they buy in the monitor with chasis and then build the pcs to your specification.

    What- "MikeSoft" who, when they call the school asking to talk to someone in IT Support, fail to pronounce their name properly (consistently) and instead *let* receptionists and others believe that it is "Microsoft" who are calling you?

    Yes. I had the sales guy for our area out one day last term and he took up nearly three hours of my time showing off a turkey basting tin...I mean, an all in one computer system. It was very crude. And cheap looking.

    Anything like ours here SCL AIO

    These are a pretty good mid range solution as far as small form factor / all in one are involved as you have been told they take a standard micro atx mainboard, cpu, memory, hdd and optical drive so dont have the draw backs of being completetly proprietary i.e standard desktop parts can be swapped in and out with little hasstle.

    Not sure why companies go for the hard sell like this and risk alienating thier potential customers?

    Mikesoft are partner company to The IT Support Centre based in Burntwood, Cannock.

    I have purchased computers, TFT's, SMARTboards and Servers from them. They are really cheap, and i bet you cannot beat their prices for SMARTboards and Servers

    Their warranty of 4 yrs is awesome too. Their contracts are onsite, and its nice to know that the warranty has probably cost nothing and it also runs out just as your ready relocate them to the bin.

    Contact details are a follows:
    01543 458714

    Contact:
    Nick Scott

    Please state that you obtained these details from Dean Stanley. Thank you

    This has quickly degenerated into another free advertising opportunity!

    Deano, in what way are you affiliated with Mikesoft or IT Support Centre?
    A noob posting about a company, in such glowing terms, is always suspicious!

    IT Support Centre is like Mikesoft, as soon as a receptionist hears the name, they assume it's a legit call, as opposed to a sales call!

    Same deal on the telephone, our reception thought they were microsoft too. Whether they are a good company or not, this behaviour means I will NEVER use them.

    i dont know why companies do this, when all they need to be is helpful and honest. I'm pretty sure they will get more business than trying a hard sell.
