About SavRow Computers

SavRow is high-end system builder focusing on bespoke technology solutions for high-performance applications. SavRow was founded with a primary focus on providing the ultimate in desktop PC design.

SavRow Bespoke Technology

Among our very first desktop designs was the phase-change (think refrigerator compressor) cooled (to under -21C) SavRow Plutonium™, a 4GHz Pentium 4 system, that has retained the CPU performance crown since July 2003 when it was launched. This success has been replicated by our other desktop systems, the Diamond - recently featured in Esquire as 'Quite simply, the best computer in the world', and the Deuterium PC which won a global invitational system builder group test to be crowned Dream PC 2004 by Custom PC magazine.

Since 2003 our product range has expanded to include high performance laptops, providing the very best technology available, fully customised and tailored. These laptops have included the SavRow Blade-65 an awesome 15.4" WUXGA Centrino laptop and the award-winning SavRow Razor, which was recently crowned as the Ultimate Designer Laptop by PC Pro magazine in a high-hitting group test, and later lead to the product being nominated by PC Pro staff for most desirable piece of hardware 2004.

SavRow Bespoke Design

Our systems are somewhat unique in offering a bespoke design both technically and aesthetically. Currently we offer our laptops and desktops in 30 pre-defined SavRoyal™ paints based on Lamborghini and Ferrari-style paints, and colour shifting TVR-style Gold-Red and Green-Purple paints, these are offered in a number of designs including GT stripes and a good view of some of the designs can be seen in our product WebGallery ( This comprehensive range of pre-defined paints is complemented by our ability to match any automobile paint requested by our clients.

SavRow’s Professional range incorporated this paint expertise to provide professional clients with highly bespoke presentational laptops and desktops in the corporate colours of our clients (we can match any Pantone® colour) and also embedding corporate logo's under the lacquer of the painted units to provide a funky corporate branding statement.
