Hello everyone and welcome to a new year!

This is the last year Windows 7 will be supported by Microsoft so if you have not upgraded to Windows 10 you should. Much like Windows XP when Microsoft stops supporting its OS then 3rd party software will start to follow the same. Microsoft will stop support Jan 14th 2020 for Windows 7.

Well we have gotten a few Intel CPU’s in stock. i5 in 7th gen and 8th gen. The Intel CPUs are still sporadic in supply. Hopefully the supply will get better as the year goes by.

AMENDMENT:

Here is the latest Intel Shortage article that specifies should be back in August. Still late. Still a reason Intel is down in sales!!

There is a major shortage of Intel CPUs. This ranges from i3-i7. Because of this we have started building and selling AMD PCs. The specs for the PCs are the same its just that we are using AMD Ryzen CPUs. The naming of the AMD Ryzen are similar to Intel. Example Ryzen 5 is equivalent to an Intel i5. The Ryzen 7 is equivalent to an Intel i7.

One big difference in AMD and Intel is all Intel i3-i7 have built in graphics. Not the fastest but for general use are fine. AMD Ryzen most don’t have the graphics embedded. (Strange from a Graphic Chip Maker!!). They do make some chips that do have embedded graphics. They are the ones that end in G (ex. Ryzen 5 2400G). So for the G you don’t need to add a video card. The non G you need to add a graphics card to the system. This is why its included in the price list as needed.

Not sure how long the shortage is. Likely till early 2019.

You can check out the pricing of the AMD PCs under the Pricing Page.
