Cost-Optimized Systems since 1992
PowerSpec is registered trademark of Micro Electronics, Inc.
Founded in 1979, Micro Electronics and its subsidiaries have a long
history of innovation in the PC industry. PowerSpec products are
available primarily at Micro Center retail stores and the MicroCenter.com
Like hundreds of others, the PowerSpec® PC product line was
originally developed as an inexpensive alternative to the IBM PC.
Later, the competitors became exclusively other "clones."
Today the competition includes the new breed of lower-cost Name
Brand systems, direct sellers of computers and a very select group
of comparable-quality compatibles. Generally this class of system
is recognized by second and third-time computer buyers as worth
the investment, and PowerSpec is the price-performance leader.
More for Less.
PowerSpec is established on the simple concept of More for
Less. The creators of the brand envisioned saving the "techno-savvy"
computer buyer substantial money in three ways:
- Offer simple configurations, and mainstream technology, so customers
don't pay for either what they don't need or what's too expensive
now because it's too cutting edge
- Make sure all components are the lowest cost for an acceptably
high standard of quality, that cost decreases are relentlessly
pursued and the savings quickly passed on to customers
- Drive down manufacturing costs and eliminate extra expense layers
- large manufacturing overheads and resellers' markups are just
not part of the PowerSpec formula
We knew that a popularly-configured, price-based, high-quality system
backed by a strong warranty would appeal to those experienced computer
shoppers who immediately recognize the value and will recommend
our systems to friends. This simple premise has worked well. PowerSpec
sales continue to skyrocket and prices drop on the mainstream technology
you are looking for.
