About 1,500 jobs will go after the UK's largest computer maker, which produces Tiny and Time PCs, has gone into administration and closed its 78 shops.

Quoting BMIFlyer (Reply 1):
You know, I once bought a PC from 'Tiny'.

The service and support on it were utter rubbish.

I can second that! I purchased a Tiny PC a few years back, after little more than a month, the hard-drive failed. The after sales-support was extremely poor to say the least, and in the end I built my own PC. Much less hassle.

Shame about the workers losing their jobs.

Crap PCs though.

I don't think anyone who knew more about computers than simply turning it on will be too concerned.

I thought they went bust years ago! I used to have a Tiny PC....it was crap, and so was the customer service.

I think they did and were then taken over by Time (might be the other way around). Never had the mis-fortune to own a Tiny myself, but I`ve a couple of friends who did and both regretted it. I`ve always either brought from Mesh or built my own (at least then you know 100% what your getting).
