If you are a computer reseller with a tax ID, you can try www.ingrammicro.com (http://www.ingrammicro.com), or www.techdata.com. (http://www.techdata.com.) If you are not a computer business, you can try www.newegg.com (http://www.newegg.com), or www.cdw.com (http://www.cdw.com).

Pom is short for whinging pom LOL. Not sure where that really comes from, I heard once it was Prisoner Of Mother England, they just dropped the E off.
Yank I suppose comes from the Yankees from the civil war era. I can't be too offensive as we are apparently the 53rd state, but we also use septic tank for yank.

OH Yeah

History 101

The Brits sent all there prisoners (Such as Rapists & Murderers) to OZ with POME printed on there tops Like you say Prisoner of Mother England

It shows how daft us Brits are

these days we pay 2000 upwards for two weeks in OZ

I wonder who got the good end of the deal?????

us convicts certainly got a good deal, with the beaches and all. I am very impressed with your charges for pc service though, one member, it may have been yourself, said they got 50 pounds per hour. That equates to about $150 oz dollars. I wish I could earn that!!!!

I'm curious. What kind of discount do you typically see from buying wholesale?

Having seen Ingram Micro's prices and been registered with them for a few months, I can honestly say you're better off sticking with the likes of ebuyer and scan. Ingram Micro prices were usually more expensive and then you had a minimum 25 delivery charge per order. I'm hoping to try a few toher wholesalers once I'm VAT registered, so fingers crossed they are better.

I've only tried Ingram Micro because the others want you to be VAT registered/Ltd. I currently buy from ebuyer and Scan. It looks like Scan have their own trade accounts, which you can get with a minimum 1000/month spend. I might take a look at that aswell :)

yeah ebuyer and scan are good i like ebuyer's customer review thing so you know when a product has alot of reviews then its a good thing to buy

I have a list of distributors on theforcefield.net with comments and ratings. I also have a list of vendor partner programs. If you sell a fair amount of hardware and software it is a good idea to join some of the partner and reseller programs as most vendors will offer free marketing and sales tools, spiffs and sometimes demo units and NFR software.
