Why should I buy a Vantechs customized or standardized OEM Desktop PC instead of a global OEM branded Desktop PC (Acer, HP, etc.)?
Vantechs standard and custom desktop PCs have several advantages:
Flexibility in hardware configuration:
You can choose to control every technical detail for your customized computer; from motherboard to power supply, to your computer's look (case) and more!
However, if you don't want to think about all the details, then you can simply choose one of our three standard OEM systems, and based on your needs, their listed optional software and hardware upgrade routes (RAM, Operating system, etc.).
Local support with experienced technicians:

What is included in our Standard One Year Parts and Labour Warranty?
All our global OEM brand systems and custom non-standard systems come with a one year parts and labour warranty.
The one year parts warranty includes the manufacturer OEM replacement of all the hardware assembled in the system. This usually takes 4 to 10 weeks because defective components must be shipped to the manufacturer. The one year labour warranty only includes the fees for system testing, inspection, and hardware diagnostic. Software related problems that require troubleshooting or reinstallation are not covered by the warranty. This includes software problems such systems infected with malware, system instability or incompatibilities caused by driver, operating system, or software updates, or corrupted operating systems due to blackouts or other residential or business related electrical problems. If found by our technicians that the system is having problems due to one or more software problems, a minimum $50 per hour service fee or problem-specific in-store services will be charged to the customer.
How do I determine what kind of system I need?
If you need help choosing a system that is right for your situation, please contact our sales department for no-obligation advice. Our retail business hours and contact information are listed here
Why would I be interested in Carry-In Warranty?
With Vantechs Carry-In Warranty, you will have overall peace of mind knowing that it if your system needs service, the downtime of your business or personal use will be greatly minimized. One year of Vantechs Carry-In Warranty is already included with our three standard OEM systems, but longer term options are also available for two, three, four, or five years.
The major difference of having or not having our Carry-in warranty is that with our Standard One Year Parts and Labour Warranty, defective components must be shipped to the manufacturer and this can take up to 4 to 10 weeks, greatly prolonging the service period of your system.
With our Carry-In Warranty, your system will be repaired within 72 hours because hardware replacement(s) for your system is issued from our Service Department.
Note that our Carry-In Warranty is only available for our three standard OEM systems: VT Starter, VT Economic, and VT Performance. For further details, please contact our Sales Department.
