Choosing the right machine for the job

In a world where technology is changing at an ever more rapid rate it's almost impossible to keep up with developments. People are constantly bombarded with adverts for computers, with some extremely clever advertising, but what is the right solution for you?

Should you buy a Windows based PC? What about Apple Mac? What is this Linux thing I keep hearing about? It is too easy to make a mistake and purchase a computer system or peripheral (thats the extra bits that hang off of your computer) that's actually completely wrong or overly expensive for your needs - potentially a big waste of money. Whether you are buying a computer for the first time, replacing an existing system or looking for some mobile action, its a tough choice.

We can provide you with all the professional advice and assistance you need in deciding what to buy and we certainly won't suggest a system that's unnecessarily high spec - if a more basic, low cost system will provide what you need, then that's what we'll recommend.

Increasingly our customers ask us to recommend the system best suited to their requirement and purchase it for them, taking advantage of both our trade contacts and buying power, to ensure highly competitive prices. Some customers even prefer to have us build one from scratch for them, because they want parts from specific manufacturers, or aren't 100% sure they can put it together themselves.

Hooking it all up

Whether you have bought the system yourself or we have supplied it, the next step is to install it properly and get it working the way you want. Either way we'll get the job done promptly and make sure it is all set up to work at optimum efficiency, including your internet connections. We can even help you transfer your files and applications from one machine to another if that helps.

If you want a custom system built, we can undertake the whole project for you from sourcing and obtaining the parts to construction and installation. We can even deal with liquid or cryogenic cooling solutions and ultra quiet setups, if that is your need.

Upgrades and Maintenance Services

Quite often you can avoid buying new or replacement kit by giving your PC or laptop a new lease of life - sometimes it's simply a case of removing viruses or upgrading the memory.

Our professional integrity means that if an upgrade is more appropriate and less expensive than starting again, then that's what we'll recommend.

Some of our clients prefer us to regularly attend their homes to carry out routine maintenance, such as anti-virus software upgrades, handling patching and all manner of basic tasks, even down to backing up their computers for them. Some even drop their computers off when they go on holiday, so we can do the maintenance on them, manage and renew any licenses they hold etc. Whatever your needs, let us know and we are sure to be able to offer a solution that fits your needs.
