Our computer systems are designed primarily for businesses who are interested
in acquiring top quality desktop systems. Therefore, McGrath Electronics
uses only the highest quality components in our computer systems. The importance
of reliability is foremost in our assessment of choosing components for
our computer systems. Computer down time will cost a business far more than
the small difference in the cost of using the best components available.
We offer several basic computer configurations that can be customized
to meet your specific needs. Please refer to the sub menu for details of
these systems. In addition, we can custom build just about any computer
or server configuration to suit your specific requirements. We also install
and pre-configure the operating system and any other software you require.
We do not install any useless software that is commonly found on computers
purchased from any of the big manufacturers. If the computer is to be used
on a network, we can properly install it on the network for an additional
fee. Please feel free to contact us with any
questions you may have.
Our computer systems are built for maximum reliability using:
- Intel boxed motherboards and boxed processors that have the best
manufacturer warranty in the business. It is our experience that these
components frequently outlast those from the major manufacturers. It
is also our experience that an Intel motherboard and processor combination
is very reliable as they were specifically designed to work together.
- Seagate hard drives that have the lowest failure rate in the industry.
Over the past 20 years we have experienced only 15 Seagate hard drive
failures. In this same period we have encountered over 200 failed drives
by other manufacturers.
- Kingston Technology memory that has a limited lifetime manufacturer's
warranty. This means that as long as the memory is still in production,
any failure will be replaced by Kingston. To date we have experienced
only one failure of Kingston memory.
In over 20 years of building computers, we have found this combination
to be the most reliable in terms of stability and longevity. None of our
customers have seen the "Blue Screen of Death" due to a hardware issue since
1998 when we fully switched to this hardware combination.
