Today sees the launch of a partnership between bit-tech and Scan Computers. We've worked with Scan for years on both the bit-tech and Custom PC side of things, with Scan supplying us early access to kit, and components for labs and features. Let's not forget their Dream PC either. Most of the team have ordered kit from Scan at one time or another, too.

Wouldn't bring it up usually, but I cannot remember the last time I saw a pre-built PC reviewed by Bit...

We have reviewed pre-built PC before (though, as you say, not in a long time), but that's no reason not to do when the content is relevant and the samples available. You may well see more PCs like this reviewed in the future across the magazine and website.
