What are Overclockers like? There forum seems to big them up but other google searches don't seem that great.
Anyone brought a full system from Overclockers? If so whats your thought on them?

And can anyone beat this spec for about the same price?

Dont think this forum bigs them up to be honest. All ive read on here about them is the extremely TERRIBLE customer service they give/dont give to people! Wouldnt use them tbh

They are good butnreturning stuff is a big problem. Tbh there's mixed reviews about them. Buy at your own risk.

Yer that's kinda what I mean in terms of returning if I have a problem with the laptop.

I don't live near the shop so can't just pop into the shop and get it sorted out there.
Ive emailed them with a few questions and seemed to reply pretty fast but since its a custom build (Based on Clevo M860TU) wasn't sure what the build quality would be like and if I did have a problem how there after support would be.. Might just order and hope for the best...

racists, rubbish customer service, don't touch them

It's not strictly relevent when you're buying a laptop, but Overclockers policy is that they don't sell PCs just components to go in them and the service of putting them together. This totally flies in the face of what everything on the website says, but it means that they can justify their stance that, when your system fails, they'll only replace the failed part or grant you a refund on the failed part. This means that if a mobo fails, it's up to you to somehow prove it, or face a long and expensive sucession of RMAs for individual parts, and no chance of a refund for a system that breaks within three days of ownership. You can kiss goodbye to protection under the DSA's cooling-off period too, since the custom-built nature invalidates it. They probably apply the same principles to laptops.

Your best bet is to go to someone like Dell. Especially if you don't want to pay devout racists your money/

Iwould go Dell but they are much more and don't really compare spec wise.. I'll have to keep looking
