Here are some of the terms you may be unfamiliar with when reading the listings. We are always here to help, so feel free to contact us via live chat or via the contact form HERE.
Dual Booting: The ability of the computer to run both MacOS and Windows, either separately or at the same time.
VMWare: The program that allows Windows to run inside MacOS.
Virtual Install: The installation of Windows on the Mac that means you can have both on screen at once.
Native Install: This means you can reboot the Mac to run only Windows, so you effectively have a Windows computer with Apple hardware. This is useful for gaming or increased compatibility for programs like QuickBoooks or Sage. You can have this in addition to the virtual install for £60.
Build to Order: Machines that are non-standard configurations, they must be requested to be built from Apple, and hence take longer to arrive.
Steady Comps Originals: These are brand new Macs upgraded by our own qualified team of experts to much higher performance levels for a fraction of the price of new machines. That might be a hard drive upgraded to an SSD, or a RAM upgrade that Apple do not offer. All machines comes with the same 12 month warranty as brand new machines, and arrive to us brand new from Apple.
Reasons to purchase:
We effectively supply two machines in one, saving you time effort and money. You get Mac hardware and Windows software on the same machine, configured to your specific needs, as one size never fits all.
All our machines come with a personally tailored guide, online backup of your machine, a free DVD drive (where applicable) and a USB HUB. These, like the software we install, have been carefully chosen to make your out of the box experience as welcoming and as easy to use as possible.
We are experts in this particular setup, having traded here and on Amazon/eBay as well as our own store for over 12 years. We were the very first to offer this service on eBay, and have supplied solutions to everyone from large corporations to private buyers. They all get the same excellent service and after sales support.
