Give us a call or visit the shop if you are thinking of buying a computer.
If you have a desktop or laptop that you want upgrading, or if you are considering getting a newer, faster computer, but are unsure whether to upgrade your old one? Then come and see us. We can advise you on potential upgrades, how much they would cost, what kind of difference they would make, and how an upgraded machine would compare to a completely new one.
SSD Upgrades from £60!
One of the most popular upgrades that massively speed up computers is fitting an SSD drive to a computer. SSDs are microchip based storage devices that can replace, or work alongside traditional mechanical spinning hard disks. They are both immensely faster and more reliable. They shorten boot times in some case cut them down to a quarter or less, as well as speeding up almost everything else your computer does. With SSD prices falling all the time it is now more affordable than ever to have one fitted to your machine.
The £60 quoted above includes a brand new 120GB SSD, the labour to fit it and to move all your files and programs onto the new drive. Larger Drives are available and may be required for customers with a lot of data.
Callouts, Collect and Return Service and Home Visits:
If you are unable to visit our shop and need us to collect a machine, then return it when any work is complete, or have problem that needs to be looked at in your own home, such as networking issues, we are happy to come out to you. To discuss your needs and the exact prices please get in touch, see the contact us page for how to do so.
Collect and Return – £20 we collect a machine, bring it to the workshop for any work that is needed and then return it when we are finished. Any work on the machine will be charged as normal.
Home Callout – £35 per hour in normal working hours. An additional mileage charge may apply depending on where you live and how long the job takes.
Emergency Home Callout – £60 per hour. While more common for our business customers sometimes people need or want a problem fixed very quickly or in times that we would not normally agree to do a callout. Emergency Callouts are for jobs that take place during shop hours or before 9 am, after 6pm, or on sundays.
Large Jobs – For large jobs taking 4 or more hours of on site work a custom quote will be made giving some discount to our normal or emergency callout rates.
