There's plenty to choose from.
Misco.co.uk - Computer Hardware, Laptops, Notebooks, Desktops, TFTs, Printers, Servers, Wireless Networking, Software
Cheap Laptops, Hard Drives, LCD Monitors, TVs and more at Ebuyer
SCL Online - Homepage
etc etc etc.
Then there's smaller suppliers like CP-LTD, and Westwood who come highly recommended but don't have the greatest of websites.
Don't take the web price as gospel, haggle and you'll get better pricing.
It would help though if you told us what you were looking for.

James be sure to pm me your details and I'll inturn send you mine and save you all the internet trawling , consider me your personal shopper lol

Don't underestimate eBay, or second hand equipment in general:

For a decent wireless keyboard and mouse set, try Gyration kit - £100+, but they can easily replace a whole £3,000 interactive whiteboard. They're in the Tesco vouchers catalogue again this year, I see.

Misco are very good all rounders for price and aftersales, as are Dabs who are probably slightly more expensive but have always enjoyed a good aftersales relationship with them. Always make sure you get an account manager to deal with either way, makes life that little bit easier.

There's a few SCL people on here; and whilst having only purchased once from them I found the build quality excellent.
Misco on the other hand ... well (And I even worked for them at one point.)

Fair enough if you've had a bad experience, but can you be a bit more specific? What, exactly, went wrong, and after how long and after what kind of usage? We bought 21 all-in-one systems from SCL last summer and they've been fine so far - couple of dodgy bits of RAM, but that was no problem to sort out (admittedly, I sorted those out myself as I had a couple of sticks of RAM spare, so I haven't had to deal with getting a machine repaired). All seems fine inside the machine, all is quite neat and tidy. Sales representative was surprisingly knowledgeable (knew to recommend a motherboard that supported hot-swap SATA under Windows XP), although it turns out that it is possible to fit a second harddrive in those all-in-one cases after all. Our Dell Vostro machines, now 18 months old, have had no problems, and our Dimension 2400 machines (5 years old?) just keep plodding along.
