About 1,500 jobs will go after the UK's largest computer maker, which produces Tiny and Time PCs, went into administration and closed its 80 shops.
Lancashire-based Granville Technology Group has been making monthly losses of up to £2m since the start of the year.

From what Ive seen of the build quality of their machines, good riddance. We have some old Tiny's on our network. They are the most shoddy built troublesome machines on our network....

I couldn't agree more AS. Based just down the road from me, people are contacting me all the time re their crap. Barge pole and all that , their after sales sevice was non existent when at it's best. Shame about the jobs but that's life.
