"I called 2 other resellers for the MSI GT70 notebook I was looking at. While these folks were a little busy and had to call me back, I found them to be the most helpful and informative. The sales rep was knowledgeable and quite helpful. I also called tech support to ask a few "test questions" and they were equally rather informative. The product shipped out ahead of schedule and worked perfect. Prices were also good, not the cheapest, but fair. Would buy again. "

"Very happy with my Alienware 18. Great laptop for gaming. Donald did a outstanding job on helping me thru the mind bending maze that is computer shopping these days. Donald let me know what was important for the laptop I wanted. This way I was able to zero in on only the things I needed and not all the fluff they will try to sell you at the big box stores."

"Powernotebooks.com deserves 6/6 on a 5 scale rating.

CS, (Abe) not only educated me on current technology, but helped me get started on research, then rehashed everything later after I was armed with some knowledge. Not only did he set up my dream desktop and laptop purchase, but also coached me on modems, routers, external hdd enclosures... the works. Because of him, my home LAN is incredibly user friendly and better than ever; meanwhile, my WAN/ISP speed test are performing much better, than they were after contacting my ISP for help. Considering he only makes money off the PC sales, all the extra work is really appreciated. I'm used to calling other companies for support and they usually pass the buck; meanwhile, Powernotebooks.com volunteers to help.

As for the sale... I kept trying to spend too much money, while CS reps like Abe would try and talk me down! We priced out a total of 4 systems and each time more money was saved taking advice, rather than just filling out the specs myself. Not only that, but a new laptop (MSI Apache GE70) was due within a couple weeks and instead of just pushing off one of the currently available laptops, I was advised to wait and get all the features of interest instead of either current one while sacrificing features.

I called Tech Support and Scott, who had built our systems, was a great help answering questions, providing instructions for installing the GPU, and getting the laptop reset for setup when it was acting in an unexpected fashion.

The shipping and time from order to delivery was great too. Order was finalized on 15APR, and delivered on 24APR (7 business days). That is fantastic for two custom built systems. PN.com also padded and packaged the shipment extremely well... luckily this was the case, because the carrier was brutal.

PN.com is also on the ball with problem resolutions. The shipper/carrier dropped the container so hard, that a box inside was crushed so badly that the cardboard was splitting and ripping. No problem, PN.com just says to take photos of the box and contact them if the component is defective!

We are not first time customers. Our first purchase from PN.com was about 10 years ago, and that laptop is still doing great for being so old. If it wasn't for Windows XP being put out to pasture, it would still be a primary system in our house. Go Sager!

Powernotebooks.com truly deserves their A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. Hopefully they will still be going strong when I need new computers in 10 years for Windows 9 (or whatever it will be called).

I hate signing up at websites with a passion, but here I am actually setting up a login at ResellerRatings.com to gush about Powernotebooks.com!

"I went to PowerNotebooks.com after seeing its high ratings here, especially as opposed to Woot.com's which had a laptop I was considering. While the site's design and name appear suspiciously generic and unappealing, I can confirm that the customer service and prices are top notch. They're just as careful about selling as you should be about buying, and they actually require that you call in to confirm when paying with a credit card - but that's a good thing. The call was quick and easy and the representative was friendly. Throughout the entire purchasing and shipping process, there were constant email updates, alerting me to when the charges were actually made to my account, and when the order was placed, when the laptop was shipped, as well as a confirmation of my selected specs.
I never had a need to contact a representative directly, but when I sent them a thank you after receiving my laptop, the reply I received was swift and personalized. I highly recommend this site.

"In my opinion, PowerNotebooks is an excellent source for obtaining reasonably priced and fast, well-constructed gaming PCs. They (PowerNotebooks staff) offer to the customer the ability to purchase a customized PC, giving him or her the flexibility to select different models of CPU, amount and speed of RAM, model of graphics adapter, type and size of hard drive, and whether or not an operating system should be installed. The three or four variants of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are offered.

Its staff is friendly, yet professional, and technically proficient. I have made two transactions with them, once in December 2012 and again in March 2014. Both times I received customer service from Mr. Donald Stratton. The first time, I ordered a Sager brand notebook. Minutes later, Mr. Stratton called me directly, explained that the particular model of Sager notebook I ordered was not in stock at the time, and guided me through the customization of a PowerNotebooks "PowerPro" laptop of similar specs and price.

The second order I made was also for a Sager laptop. This time, it was in stock and Mr. Stratton e-mailed me promptly, giving me updates for the laptop's ordering and shipment. I received it today and it works very well.

"Fantastic seller! Very highly recommended. Donald was extremely helpful in configuring a system, and I'm thrilled with the final product. Considerably better than many of the stock PCs! All of the upgrades are well integrated into the system, the packaging was very good, shipping was quick, and the communication was extremely good throughout the process. I would definitely buy from them again!"

"I ordered the Sager NP8278 Notebook on March 10th. Due to changes made to video cards, the newest batch of Sager notebooks were being shipped out about a week later. All of this was explained carefully to me over the phone before ordering, so I was aware before making my order. It turns out I was able to get a free upgrade on my video card and ended up saving a few dollars on the final price. The laptop was shipped on March 19th, and I received it on the 24th because it was shipped during a weekend. Everything was nicely packaged and the Notebook came in excellent condition, with battery charge, and no extra filler software installed on the machine. My experience with Powernotebooks was a very postivie one. I found the staff to be polite, and knowledgeable and able to answer any question I could throw at them. I especially appreciated their ability to predict the shipping date. It arrived exactly when they said it would. For me expectations are everything, and they fulfilled mine."

"Excellent customer service. Donald Stratton was my customer service representative. He reviewed my order and actually discovered that I had ordered Windows Ultimate when I only needed the level below it. He also helped me find an alternative when the ASUS laptop I picked did not offer RAID1. I ended up paying less for a higher performance MSi that better met my needs. Donald has exceeded my customer service expectations and I plan to use PowerNotebooks in the future."

"What a great experience I've had with Donald and everyone at Powernotebooks.com! The service, quality and value I've gotten has been impeccable. As a filmmaker, 3d animator and editor Donald walked me through the essential steps to building a one if a kind power house laptop I needed to compete and also stay mobile! Needless to say I'm very pleased and will look no further than these guys on all my computer purchases! "

"Wonderful experience. Donald Stratton was knowledgable, helpful and friendly. He answered my questions in a way that i understood and did not patronize me for my lack of computer knowledge. I ordered my laptop right in the middle of a big rush for new GPU's and he was still able to expedite my order so it would ship on a certain date. I had a small snafu involving FedEx with the shipping address, but the woman who works the phones did absolutely everything she could to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. She kept in touch with me to work with me and was prompt about replying. The situation was resolved by the next business day and i was able to pick up my laptop. The product is exceptional, exactly as I ordered, and even sexier than i thought it would be. A huge plus was all of my drivers and my OS being pre-installed with NO BLOATWARE. A truly wonderful experience. I will be buying my next unit from them as well."

"Great service! They were able to customize my laptop to my specs and I was able to receive it 4 days after purchase. Donald was great and I highly recommend them for high end laptop purchases! They are cheaper than just about everyone else and don't weigh down their website with too many "extras" - just meat and bones, which I like.

I will be going back in the future.

"PowerNotebooks.com's Donald Stratton made me feel comfortable in my 3k purchase by paying attention to detail and fully understanding my needs. From this understanding Donald was able to give me the proper guidance to make my purchase, and for me to do it with confidence. I dj for a living both in clubs and private events and needed a VERY strong machine that would never miss a beat. After many months of scouring user feedback info on a worthy compnay I chose PowerNotebooks.com. Let me say this was GREAT decision for many reasons. A few of which are, I spoke to a person who listened to what it was specifically I was looking for. He asked me questions to help me fine tune things I did not fully understand. I never once felt rushed. Thank you Donald, you and your staff are very professional and PowerNotebooks.com will be my first stop for any further computer related dealings I may need in the future..

"Over two years ago I had PowerNotebooks custom build the laptop of my dreams. I needed it fast and I had some pretty exacting specs to satisfy. Two hard drives(C: solid state, D: TB disc), special graphics capabilities, etc. They delivered the product to me within 72 hours of my initial request. For the last two years it's worked perfectly until two weeks ago I discovered some Windows-based issues that were hampering my ability to update software and drivers correctly. Brought it to a local computer repair outfit who informed me I'd need to wipe and re-install Windows on my C drive- he could do it for me for a couple hundred dollars. Then I decided to try the PN tech support line...and boy am I glad that I did! Over two years after my purchase and they treated me like I was as important as the day I made my decision to purchase. Tech guru, Zoltan, stayed on the line with me throughout the whole process(almost 2 hours) and helped to optimize all the settings based on my preferences. I've loved the laptop ever since it arrived. But it was the support I received in my hour of need that has brought me to post this review. If you're considering purchasing a fantastic customized laptop, they do a terrific job. If you're interested in being treated like a human being with considerate and competent tech support long after you've bought, you've found the right place. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"A lot of online shop offer customizable laptop service. And I I had problem with all of them. I am not gonna name anyone but I bought around 6 gaming PC and returned 4 of them.

When I saw PowerNotebook, I though it was yet another shop of that kind. Yet, Their website was a bit different : more clear and with better slightly better deals and a WAY better customisation interface. (Again, a lot of website use that kind of interface but they are all, in opinion, bad)

I though it was great! So I contacted a seller for 2-3 questions. No waiting, got my answers right away.

When I bought the computer, I didn't know I was about to see the best customer service of my life. One word : Dedication.

I have only a single complaint. They ask 15$ for removing the bloatware from the computer. I didn't take it. But I had a MSI computer and GOD!! MSI like those bloatwares!
All in all, it is more of MSI's fault that Powernotebook, but I suppose offering this service for free would be great. I sure can unistall bloatware, but since I don't all of the software, some software that I think are bloatware may be driver-associated software. And unistalling them would make the computer lose some feature.
