Thank you very much for your advice &
Jim Beach -
You helped me understand the computer world
when I was purchasing and have provided invaluable support whenever I
become lost or stuck with my machine. Thanks again, March 2003.
Duncan Crow, Duncan BC,
I am a wholistic consultant in BC. I needed computer upgrade anyway, and a
notebook computer would allow for greater impact when delivering my
workshops, impact that an audio-visual component would provide.
After some internet searching I settled on the DeskNote from Duncans
Computers partly because of the reasonable price. It offered everything I
needed and uses the same USB components that a desktop uses. That means no
expensive notebook-specific attachments are required.
I got the DeskNote tested and ready to run just as I expected. John Duncan
was helpful and thorough, also as expected. The DeskNote is a good quality
unit; it's so easy to set up that the slim owners manual supplied is
I've had computers continuously since 1978. I've worked as a programmer
and computer operator, later as a Microsoft Certified Professional, so you
could say I have knowledge of the field. I recommend both the DeskNote and
the source, Duncans, The Computer People. Duncan Crow, Duncan BC, Nov 30,

Hey, sorry it took me
so long to get on this letter Iíve been crazy busy. There are so many
things that I adore about this laptop. I havenít used it a lot yet
because I havenít started school yet. I can already see it is going to
make a difference in how much quicker I can type my notes and listen to
the lecture more closely. That will make a great difference to my marks
as well. Itís nice to just be able to have access to any information I
need whether Iím on a plane, or at home. The only thing I need to look
into more because Iím not even sure if itís possible it having internet
access at all times. At work I can pull out my laptop and play some of my
favorite DVD games, and know one knows I was ever playing games. And when
I have to sit and wait for late people like my father and Justin I can
whip out my laptop and continue what I began earlier that day. I like how
drive A is separate from the actual laptop because I donít always use it.
Itís good to know that there are other batteries you can buy. It fits
every ones needs and budget. As for the price! I went out to look at
other laptops before I bought this one and there was at least an $800
difference more for the same options. I am overall happy with my decision
of buying it through you guys because of the good deal and options that
this laptop came with. As well as the fact that when I have any questions
or concerns I can call you up and the knowledge you have educates me as
you guide me through it, and Iím in Alberta! Thatís definitely why you
have such an awesome business going on. Thanks again for all your help.

Desknote A928 for TevlinGleadle
All went fine, set it up over the weekend, and works great. Thanks for
your help. I would like to order another, a Desknote A900 or an A901 for
my partner's daughter. The 1Mhz processor in the A900 or the A900 would
seem ok, I presume both have a 10Gb HD, she would want the DVD/CD combo.

...also, I have been checking around
and you DO have some of the best prices on computer parts
and systems. Not just that, but your warranty is not to be beaten in
comparison to your prices. I always thought they were good but now that I
have checked them, they are really good. I think the Duncans
motto should be "the best computer prices with warranty
in Saskatchewan...period!" I mostly did the research
to show my mom how much cheaper it will be to get a system from Duncans
then anywhere else, plus the fantastic warranty. November 29, 2000

...I just wanted to thank you guys for everything. My computer is
working great ....
I'm finally settled in to Physics. Last year I was thinking of switching
into a few different faculties, but I think I'll be finishing my degree in
physics for sure. The university has a rather large Computer Science department.
I did 2 courses in it last year. They have just finished a brand new
building for Computer Science and for Computer Engineering. November 27,
