Hey all, just wondering if anyone has bought a computer from the Linux Emporium? I've had a look at their high end desktop and I'm quite tempted, but even though this is purportedly a Linux company, I'd prefer to see if other people can recommend them before I give them the best part of a 1000

Cheers,

-Dante

I live in Spain and it is lonely wrt linux - esp if you are an OAP recovering from a stroke.

I decided to try broadband via wifi and bought a wireless router from Linux Emporium. It cost 20 and of course, I had probs.

The MD spent about an hour talking to me until I had comms.

The fault was with my equipment setup, not his gear.

Outstanding Customer Service for a 20 sale!

Highly recomended!

Best

David

Not bought from them recently, as I haven't needed to. A friend bought a laptop from them last year (on my recommendation) and has been happy with it.

My cousin got the Linux emporium from there and he is happy with it. He has no problem because of it. I also got it but not from there. I got it from my nearest dealer for my reliability at the reliable price.


Did you mean to say that? Very Happy

I suspected this user was a potential spammer from the style of their posts. I was waiting for a spam signature link to appear, which it has now done.

Edit: I went to delete the post after writing this but someone beat me to it.
