14 Day Return Policy

You can return an item to us within 14 days from the day after your order was delivered for a full refund.

You can examine the goods as you would in a shop but to obtain a full refund you must not start using them, install them or input any data/software. The goods must be returned in the condition they were sent to you in, with all the accessories that came with it, any free gifts or promotional items and ideally the original packaging.
You are liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. For example, if it goes beyond the sort of handling that might reasonably be allowed in a shop. We will deduct this amount from the value of the refund.

If you want to return an item, you should do so without undue delay and not later than 14 days from the day on which you informed us of your decision to cancel the order.

If you have changed your mind about a product, you are responsible for paying the return postage.

If your device is within its Warranty Period

Your computer comes with a 90 Day Return to Base Warranty (or 12 months if you purchased the extended warranty), so in the unlikely event that a fault occurs within this period, please contact us so we can help resolve the fault.

Please read about the Warranty before contacting us.

If the fault cannot be rectified over the phone, we will arrange collection of your device so it can be returned to our repairs centre. Before this collection, please make sure all data is backed up as we are not liable for any data loss. We will then repair/replace any faulty components, test, and return the device to you using a next day courier service at no extra cost.

If we are unable to repair your device for any reason, we would then offer to replace your item for a like-for-like device. If we are out of stock of this item, we would then offer you an alternative or a device of your choosing, up to the value that you paid for your original order.

In the first instance, please contact our Technical Support team who will help you with your query and can create an RMA number if required.
