Support The Little Man - Where Are You All From

I have an idea, Oh-No He hears them say..... Not Another....

Let's kick off a thread about where we all come from, and more importantly include a local computer shop we use and recommend. Not your usual big boy's PC World etc, but those quaint little ones where you pop to pick up your essentials when all else fails.....

Well, I'm near Marble Arch and there are hundreds of "computer shops" around. I've not found one I would recommend.

In my corner of Lancashire there aren't any 'Little Men' around. I would patronize them otherwise.

I'm on the Costa Blanca - and I'm one of the "little men" - though I guess some of you know that already!

Diesse, do you ship to the UK & are your prices & services 100% good, if so big up yourself & post your url.

  watchful 13:18 03 Apr 2003

That's a bit too far to go to the corner shop!

I only deal where I can travel to.

I am thinking of starting up as a little man. Can you give me some advice like suppliers etc? I am in London so do not compete with you.

  DieSse 15:06 03 Apr 2003

Suppliers is difficult, as I use mainly Spanish ones! I have used click here for software, and found them very helpful.

General advice - you can't compete on price with the big boys - so compete on expertise, support, customer visits and handholding, and custom builds, particularly high-value specials.

Try and make a big thing out of something - ultra quiet cases, for example.
