Hi.

 

It's been a long time since this has been something I've needed, so I am not sure what's still in the market.

 

I have a few customers looking for specific builds for PC's that aren't cost-effectively met by using premade PC's from our usual Vendors.

 

Are there any ideally Auckland based PC building distributors any more?

 

 

 

Cheers

You could try QMB Computers www.qmb.co.nz - I used to use them to build my own years ago, discounts increased with more purchases or you can get quotes

They have OEM software, so I guess they sell to resellers. Otherwise get a trade account at pbtech?

I've never used Dove's custom builds, but they looked decent enough to me.

 

Insite was my go-to in the early 2000's when I was Wellington-based, and they used quality Intel mobos and decent power supplies.  I see they have an Wiri address.

Dove Electronics do a few barebone PCs that you then add your own storage and Windows too.
You can also add a graphics card and more RAM if needed but you have to install any extra parts yourself.

 

While they have an office in Auckland I think they usually ship their PCs from their head office in Christchurch.

 

 

 

Edit: I use them all the time, and have done for many years. Any issues have always been sorted in good time by Dove, but there haven't been many.
The good thing is they also have all the individual component warranties so most things are covered for at least 3 years.

Also used Dove for many years, with plenty of their barebone PC's. Great service.

We get PC's built by JDI (Ak) for us to resell.

 

Not sure what you mean by Distributor in this case, distributors just onsell other manufacturers products
Are you just after trade pricing ? margins are so small trade pricing sometimes is often litte better than retail unless its more specialized hardware

What level of customization do you need? many places sell barebones PC's as a starting point (Dove etc)
Dont Dell give customization options via their website ?. Perhaps you can get custom Dells through Ingram ?
