Laptop Computers

Rascom I.T. can supply laptop solutions for a wide range of applications.


From simple systems for educational use or general home applications to high-end gaming or CAD design, there is a range of products to suit all needs.  I commonly supply solutions from specific brand-name manufacturers such as Lenovo, HP, Toshiba and Acer.

With so many different laptops available in the market, it can be a minefield trying to identify what is best for you.  By discussing your needs, I will do this for you.  Personally, I do not use or recommend Intel Celeron or Pentium-powered systems as I feel these processors are under-powered for regular usage and I often hear of users complaining that their systems are running slowly shortly after purchasing their new systems (not from me I should point out).  For only a very slight increase in cost, systems powered by an Intel Core-i3 based or better processor offer much better value for money, increased performance and generally have a longer lifespan.

All laptops include a free initial set-up service so that your new system is ready to use as soon as you receive it and switch it on - including the installation of any relevant system updates and any additional software applications as requested.

If you are replacing an existing system, I can transfer documents and other data from your old computer onto the new system for just £30 inc VAT (up to 100Gb of data).

Below is a list of the laptops I have in stock at the moment but others may be obtainable upon request.

* Windows 10 S is a restricted version of the Windows 10 operating system designed to be more secure.  Users can only download software etc. from the Microsoft Store and are prevented from installing software from any other source.  However….  It is possible to apply a free upgrade to the full edition of Windows 10 Home.  Due to the extra setup and time required in doing this, I have to impose an additional £25 inc VAT charge for this service.

If you would prefer to have Windows 11 pre-installed on any of the above systems then please let me know. 

For other display sizes, or different specifications, please contact me on 01243 374585 to discuss your requirements.
