Hi there, in the lastest issue of pc advisor there are literally tens and tens of pages of tiny computing ads. The laptops in particular look like fantastic value and if they really are as good as they claim then surely they should be in pc advisor's budget laptop charts???
I'm considering getting one of these laptops instead of one of the top 3 in the budget chart...am i stupid???!!!!
Has anyone actually splashed out on one and if so any complaints???
of biased comment when you ask about Tiny, and my advice is to ignore it - make up your own mind, based on your own judgment about the machine's apparent value.
You can make your own copy of the Windows XP installation quite easily, so you don't need to pay for a restore disk if you don't want to. My feeling is that if I was making a purchase as important as a new laptop I wouldn't be worrying about an extra £30 or so, but there you are - some people see it as a major factor, and that's their prerogative.
I have no axe to grind for Tiny whatsoever, I have no connection with the magazine's advertising department, and I speak as I find - whether or not a company advertises in our pages. Tiny suffers because of the past, but the present company is a new one - not connected with the previous company of the same name - with a new range of machines, and a new marketing policy. Whether or not they succeed remains to be seen, but so far I have heard no bad reports about their computers and several good ones.
Some people take a delight in knocking suppliers for the sake of it - it beats me why - but I believe in making my own mind up, based on personal knowledge and research. I suggest that you do the same.
very carefully.Friend of mine bought a desktop from Tiny and found that the modem is tied to their choice of ISP which my friend didn't want to use and he had to buy an external modem. So unless Tiny have had a policy change recently watch out for this one.All in all he's happy with the pc though.
