When u search for some wholesalers you get a web page come up offering a book/cd of all the wholesalers in the country! I have had this several times from different places, is this a load of rubish and is a con? again greatly appreciated

Imgram micro, ccl computers (There a halfway point between comsumer and trade), and spire are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. There's a bi monthly trade mag for computer supplies, but I can remember its name! Try searching uk search engines for computer trade magazine. To subscribe to it you'll have to apply via their website. Once they've reviewed your application for subscription you'll get a yes or no answer via email. A word of advice, it helps if no end if your already a registered company when applying for this mag.

They are very good. I got all my stuff from them. Excellent stuff, just tell them Ali told you and ask to speak to DAVID ZEPHIRE.

you have a distribution channel... these include
ingram micro

you then have resellers that offer trade prices,
micro direct
plus loads more (look in CTO)

to deal with the distribution channel usually means being a limited company and quantity orders.

Another one to mention is Insight.com. Although they are not entirely just trade they often beat the likes of Ingram Micro

This thread has been resurrected after two and half years so I suspect that Mr-Alive has either found his source by now or is doing something else.
