I have checked all links on the site and all links are accurate and in working order. The other links I wanted to check was the forward and back button as you can see the back and forward screen shots below. Page Structure www.pcworld.co.uk have designed the site with consistency all the way through the site, so that navigation are in the same place on the screen throughout the site to make it easy and quick to find your way around the site. The highlighted page structure is consistent on every page on www.pcworld.co.uk to make it easier to navigate. Desktop PCs Gaming Kids Zone Screen size www.pcworld.co.uk has been designed to be easy to use regardless of your screen size. The text flows to the width of your screen, so you don't have to scroll horizontally to read the text if you have a small screen size and it allows you to enjoy the full width of your screen if you have a larger computer, which also means less vertical scrolling for you.

Conclusion

easier for them this can be very useful for www.pcworld.co.uk as some products information text is very small and can be hard to read by others. Overall I think www.pcworld.co.uk is a really good transactional site to shop from and it meets it customer's needs and what also makes it a good site is the navigation, it makes it easy to go from one page to another and that makes it very easy and simple to shop from. I also think that shopping online is much easier then going to the store and buying it from there, however shopping online has it ups and downs for example one disadvantage is that it takes time to receive the product you purchased online, therefore going to the store and buying it, is quicker. I personally prefer shopping online, as it is simple and it also allows me to find the product(s) I'm looking for much easier and quicker. I would definitely recommend a lot of people to shop online from pc world as it meets it purpose by advertising (new) products online with the product information and allows customers to collect their product(s) from store or have it delivered to them. ?? ?? ?? ??
