Custom Computers


Cates-Associates provides clients purchasing services for mid-range business computers and high end work stations. We design computers and provide clients a complete specification and cost, which they may then use to shop for price. Additionally, we will purchase computers on your behalf. While we charge for preparation of the spec, we do not markup the hardware and when purchasing on your behalf we provide you the manufacturer's invoice.

We are competitive on price. We are NOT the cheapest. We do believe we provide the best quality for the best price.
