    Hi All,

    I'm from the UK and am about to pull the trigger on a new P775TM1-G, But am hoping you can help regarding BIOS Advise.

    There are 2 Clevo resellers I have cheapest prices from;

    EUROCOM (Offers "UNLOCKED" BIOS)
    PC Specialist (Offers Stock BIOS, but with overclocking via Software / CCC)

    EuroCom offer "UNLOCKED" BIOS, though as I understand it, they are no longer PREMA partners?

    Are EUROCOM using PREMA Bios without consent? Or is it their own unlocked BIOS?

    If it is their own Unlocked BIOS, does anyone know how it compares to PREMA?


    Which of the two would you choose?

    (FYI: I cannot buy for any PREMA Partnerssuch as HIDEvolution because they are unfortunately too expensive)

    Xoticpc is a Prema partner and eurocom are the most expensive I've seen so far. Not an actual advice though but check Xoticpc :)

    I'll check them out now! :)

    The reason EUROCOM are cheapest for me is because I don't pay any 20% TAX (eurocoms site allows you to deduct tax and pay without any applied, most others don't), I also get 10% discount as a student.

    How are getting away with not paying the 20% tax from Eurocom ?

    From what I have heard Eurocom unlocked bios are just the stock bios that have had the options turned back on, whether the machine supports that option or not.

    Maybe worth contacting Prema about a bios and get your machine from PCS is a better option.

    EuroCom allow the sale without TAX, when it gets brought back onto the UK I have to pay import VAT (20%) which I then claim back from the UK Government.

    In total it would be 30% discount including the 10% discount because I am a student.

    PC Specialist don't do student discounts but they are already cheaper than EUROCOM.

    I will try and get hold of PREMA to ask about getting the BIOS onto a PCS Machine.

    Yes, based in the UK, at a new (VAT Registered) Company.

    ClevoCenter, based in Portugal (Europe) are able to provide a P775 with the same spec, Excluding VAT and with an 8% discount.

    Effectively I can get a PREMA P775 from Clevo Center, if anyone recommends them?
