During the level 4 lockdown our online store will be available for the support of essential services, supply of essential products, and for businesses and workers needing equipment to ensure that they can continue working from home. We expect that orders being placed adhere to these requirements, and reserve the right to question or decline any that we consider do not. Our staff will be working from home, but you can contact us by email as usual. A number of suppliers will not be shipping during this period, and this information will be on the product specification page where relevant. Please note that emergency services and key resources have first priority for stock.

Know the Ascent Difference

When it comes to computer gear, not all online retailers are the same.

There are plenty of sites that will offer you a broad(ish) range, and sharp pricing. But when you buy on price alone - the few dollars you might sometimes save, could come at a cost.

You might find hidden fees for things like shipping and delivery. Or end up waiting - and waiting - for your order to arrive. Or find that if you need to make a change - you're out of luck.

Know it's
