I am writing this as a fairly computer illiterate parent. We found so many positive reviews for UKGC that we felt safe buying our two teenage sons a gaming computer for Christmas from them. We contacted them by email and discussed our needs, they suggested one of their Eos i5 computers. When ordering the computer on their site there was a long list of add-ons (many of which we didn't understand) so we rang them to discuss what the boys used their old computer for and which of these add-ons we needed. The chap we spoke to wasn't terribly helpful and said we would be better reverting back to emails for advice. So we again emailed and received prompt advice.<br>Once we were vaguely sure that we knew what we needed we sent a final email asking if the computer would have everything it needed to be up and running on Xmas day. The reply we received said that all we needed was a keyboard and mouse and we were good to go.<br>This morning the boys opened the big box and were thrilled. We then spent 45 mins looking for the power lead to plug the computer into the mains. No Lead. So two disappointed boys and two frustrated parents resulted. I suspect that it may be the case that 'everyone' knows that you need to buy your own power lead for a computer, but being techno noobs we didn't. Its sad that in all the email correspondance no one mentioned it, when it was clear that we were very limited in our computer knowledge and had asked specifically what else we needed.<br>So my review for this computer is as follows: great machine (older cousin eventually saved the day with a spare lead) but shame about the lack of advice for computer illiterate parents.<br>Happy to recommend, but make sure you know what you want first!! <br>(UKGC- remember not all of your customers are computer whizzes, even when it comes to the basic stuff)
