An English country furniture fanatic has taken it upon himself to start a "hit parade" of the best and worst computer sellers in the land.

David Knell has made a list of 44 PC sellers, from the likes of Carrera and Panrix to the big boys Compaq and Toshiba, at his Web site for computer enthusiasts.

Voting started today, and Priceless currently holds the number one slot thanks to one vote from Joe Public (out of a total of six votes).

According to Knell, the list is aimed at anyone who wants to buy a computer - and is designed to be the British answer to US site resellerratings.com. It lets readers rate their PC seller on a scale of one to ten and add comments to either slag them off or sing their praises.

"The more people use it, the more useful it will become," says Knell, who aims to add more companies to the list on reader suggestions.

On the site, Knell says his "major interest, apart from computers, is in English country furniture... He was formerly a specialist consultant to Sotheby's and is presently the furniture consultant to the Mary Rose Trust".

Regarding his eclectic hobby tastes of computers and furniture, Knell admits cheerfully: "It is a bizarre combination."
