3) Where do our computers come from?
Due to our links with LEAs throughout the UK we have regular supplies of machines coming in from schools, and we also collect from other organisations who have used Acorn machines in showrooms and training facilities in the UK.

4) What are our warranty terms?
All machines are supplied with a limited DOA warranty and are guaranteed to be working. Thorough tests are carried out and machines will have been tested at least twice before despatch due to the nature of our booking in and testing procedures. We have not in general found that extended warranties are necessary or taken up, as any problems with machines will have been ironed out in the life of the machine. Extended warranties are available upon request.
