Computer repair technicians are a dime a dozen. Here are a few hints to help you find the right one:
1. Make sure your technician is certified. CompTIA is the industry trade association for computer professionals. Their basic certifications are A+ and Net +. These are difficult certifications to get, but are a great assurance that your technician has at least minimum competency.
2. Computer professionals working out of a shop are always a better bet than someone working out of their home. Having a physical location adds an extra layer of legitimacy to the operation.
3. Ask around. Who are your friends going to? Are they happy?
4. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce. They often have great recommendations for computer professionals that live and work in your community.Read More
When running virus software, you should never have two programs running at the same time. They end up spending more time fighting with each other than actually killing the viruses. If you are unsure which virus software is best, then we recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. It is free and generally does a great job of removing viruses for the average user.
There are a number of other things you can do to keep your computer from becoming infected from viruses. Always keep your firewall turned on, automatically have your system perform Microsoft updates and download or click on anything that doesn’t come from someone or a business that you already know.
Refurbished computers are gently used computers that have been fixed up by a qualified professional. Many refurbished computers come with a warranty. But here are a few things to watch out for when purchasing a refurbished computer:
1. Make sure your refurbished computer comes from a reputable source. Many refurbished computers sold on Craigslist do not have legitimate licenses for Windows. You will generally not find this out for 30 days, long after the seller is gone.
2. Make sure you have a warranty of at least 30 days. This way if anything goes wrong, you have some recourse.
3. Unless you have experience with Ubuntu, don’t buy a refurbished laptop only running Ubuntu. In the end, you will find yourself buying a Windows License, which can be as expensive as the laptop itself.
4. We strongly recommend buying your refurbished computers from Microsoft Certified shops as they must pass higher quality standards.Read More
The right computer can make or break a small business. Picking the right computer can be a daunting task. Here are a few things to consider:
1. Laptop or Desktop? Is the computer going to stay at the office or do you need something more portable? Desktop computers tend to be less expensive with more power. But try carrying your desktop to you next appointment at Starbucks.
2. Do you need an Ultrabook? Ultrabooks are lightweight but powerful laptops. If you travel a lot, they can be great. But expect to pay a premium. Ultrabooks generally start at about $800.
3. Do you need a Toughbook? If you routinely beat up your computer or work in construction, Tough Books are a great choice. But be prepared to pay. Tough books generally start at about $2500.Read More
