Getting a new laptop is exciting and when it arrives you just want to dive straight in and get down to testing it out. But when you switch it on for the first time there's always a lengthy set-up process and updates to install, which can be quite time consuming and tricky for those unexperienced.
We've got the perfect solution, our essential set up service and 10 point system check. It'll save you time and give you peace of mind that everything has been done right, so you can get straight down to enjoying your new laptop.
There's nothing more disappointing than finding a fault straight out of the box, so we double check your new laptop is in perfect working order and even check for dead pixels on the screen (which aren't usually covered under the standard manufacturer warranty). If we find either, we'll swap the laptop for a new one and start the 10 point inspection again. We can also install any hardware you purchase alongside your laptop, like a printer.

The in's and out's of our 10 point inspection…
Start up & critical updates
We'll take your laptop through the initial set-up process that hits you as soon as you switch on a new laptop. All critical drivers and updates will be installed too.
We put the laptop through a full display check to guarantee there are no dead or permanently lit pixels. This is important as once you see one they're hard to ignore! And the manufacturer of your laptop won't consider this a fault or a reason for return.
If you've ordered any hardware alongside your laptop, such as a printer, well install this for you, so it's ready to go straight out of the box.
Well put the speakers through their paces with a few different forms of audio playback to ensure they're in full working order and crystal clear.

Each key is inspected to make sure they are all working and that none are lose or sticking. We'll also double check the touchpad for double tapping and button clicks.
We'll make sure that whilst the laptops running there's no unusual drop in charge and that it also charges up as it should. We then charge it to 100% so it's all ready to go straight out of the box.
We check all the different ports and connections on the laptop, like USB ports, VGA ports and power connections. Making sure they all work as they should.
