In reply to stdevel: I'd have thought any company that sold computers would at least use them to run the company! I'd also have thought stock tracking / pricing wouLd be a basic requirement. If you dont know how much it cost how do you know how much to charge? Following on from that, how hard is it the extract that info to a file and stick it on a website?

I've found quite a few small companies sites like this. Just a few basic pages about the company etc and a link to a file of their price list. OK it's often in excel format, but even converting CSV to HTML isn't that hard.

After all, what costs more? Ten fifteen minute phone calls every day from people trying to find out what you sell (assuming they bother to call at all of course, I know I wouldn't) or an hour every week or so keeping the prices upto date?
