that's hardly "PC upgrading" - it's a replacement computer.
And you can buy Apples in quite a few stores now (including of course the Apple Store)
But don't forget thats how the Mac users have to upgrade their machines any decent amount; by buying new ones LOL

Re: Where do you buy your computer in Switzerland?

i've got a new laptop after 7 years of using my titanium powerbook (which in fact is still operative as a homework computer)! how many PC upgrades have you gone through in this time?...let me guess...20? maybe this is a theme for new thread. MAC or PC?

Re: Where do you buy your computer in Switzerland?

have to agree with Zombie, I bought my powerbook two and a half years ago, my husband bought a new laptop a year and a half ago and now needs a new one due to the screen not working and too slow, mine? still running smoothly, infact he has been seriously considering getting a Mac as a replacement especially since he saw this http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/

Re: Where do you buy your computer in Switzerland?

if he puts windows on his mac, in 1½ years it'll be slow again

reason? The windows user "model" where everyone is admin by default means your system gets clogged much quicker. My machines at home never get slower as nobody has admin rights....

Re: Where do you buy your computer in Switzerland?

hehe, I knew my comment would bring the zealots out A PC vs MAC thread is so pointless, you would have to pick a PC manufacturer, unless you want to compare hardware or OS/Software only.

And then again you would be preaching to the choir, I would also recommend Mac to first time and beginner computer users. Tight hardware/software integration, more intuitive OS.

Only if stuff is installed (ooh, nice Google toolbar ), or IE does a drive-by download, or "Please let me know when Real Player updates are available"...

Re: Where do you buy your computer in Switzerland?

I was having the same problem as most of you. Well since I don't speak German, and the French are so slow to get stuff done, I opened my own company. We cater to English speakers, deliver and setup what we build for free, and guarantee it all for 12 months. Check us out! www.pcdesigns.ch . If you ever need help or simple advice, we'll get it done for you.

Rocklobster or anyone else on the "platinum coast" did you ever try alcom.ch in Lachen. They have a good selection at good prices. The guy who owns it is a good and honest guy. Daniel

I don't want it to seem like I'm stalking you but if you're going to band your company about on this site, you could consider offering forum members discounts
