Trading as Grab-a-Laptop, the team originally worked out of a small corner of the Just Develop It head office.

In early 2013, Grab-a-Laptop’s growth and performance captured the interest of JDi Senior Management and by mid 2013, Solent Laptops had secured investment from JDi and also gained access to the accounts, design and HR teams.

"The team at Just Develop It have supported us, mentored us and provided us with the investment we needed to take our business to the next level.
