Evesham looks to learners

Computer firm targets students

Computer manufacturer Evesham today announced the launch of e2students, its dedicated student division set up to provide affordable, reliable IT equipment to the 3.2 million people currently in higher education.

To launch the service the company has announced myriad offers, including a five percent discount on all purchases until from 1 August to 30 September, a £5 gift voucher to be spent at gadget haven Firebox.com, a free SIM card from mobile operator O2 and a two-for-one offer at coffee shop chain Cafe Nero.

Evesham has appointed 19-year-old Chris Mole, responsible for setting up Studentdesktops.com, as its sales manager.

"This is a great opportunity for us to create the number one student PC company in the UK. Students can come to us and get fantastic deals on a wide range of PC packages," said Mole. "Although other PC companies offer back-to-school packages, they don't understand that students know exactly what they want and how they want to be treated."

A Quest II 2400 PC with a Celeron 2.4GHz, 512MB DDR RAM, an 80GB hard drive with an Olympus C150 digital camera, HP PSC 1110 all-in-one printer, scanner and copier and a three-year warranty ? all for £759.05.

To purchase goods from the range students will need to provide a valid NUS number.

Chris Mole sold his interest in Studentdesktop to his partners, but the company is still fully operation.
