Computer Upgrade Time – Locals? Market?

By Mothy 12 August 2010 21

Having seen warnings of scams on All Classifieds on RA before, I thought I’d ask if any of the readers had ever dealt with a seller I have found on there. They list their company name as A.I.Trilogy. I am looking at a Computer upgrade and a couple of theirs look appealing. Not encouraged, however, by the fact their own website isn’t up and running.

Any RA readers a past A.I.Trilogy customer? Or alternatively, can the hive mind recommend a good local retailer of an upgrade box that’ll stand by their work and not rip me off? Have had a couple of friends offer to do upgrades to my current box after a trip to one of the Computer Fairs/Markets, but worry that makes taking back defective components that much harder.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, that thread lasted a lot longer before degenerating into a fanboy discussion than expected. Cheers gp for holding out as long as you did to call the flames.

And for those still following the fun, I’m trying to run Starcraft 2. Yep. Gamer nerd.

… saw a Dell ad on the telly that day…

Cheers for the suggestion but regard the Dell (and for that matter, boxed packages sold at Harvey Norman/DSE etc) with great suspicion.

Are you just looking for parts? or a ready made box?

Looking for either really, but not without awareness of what goes IN the box and how adequately its all put together.

…and the CPU and RAM are correct in the My Computer details, there’s no reason to think it’s not a kosher deal….

Bugger My Computer – I’d be opening the case and checking serial numbers.

Dells are good as well but you’ll be paying about 30% more than AI trilogy and your computers won’t be as flexible for future upgrades etc.

Bingo.

Cheers Harvyk for feedback on Markets, and the many who +1’d ATM in Belconnen. Got some good starting points for my shopping about now.

Basketcase – yeah ran a seach for Trilogy over Whirlpool, nothing there.

🙂
