Well Windows 7 has officially been stop supported from Microsoft on Jan 14, 2020. What does this mean? Well your Windows 7 PC will still work fine but it starts to put your PC at a security risk. Also 3rd party applications (like Sage 50) will likely start not supporting Windows 7. So you ask what can you do? Well we have been upgrading many PCs/Laptops to Windows 10. The software so far is still free to upgrade but we can do the upgrade for you at a small charge. What we do is a fully backup first in case the upgrade goes bad. We then do the upgrade, do all the Windows upgrade and test the PC to confirm works fine with Windows 10. We can also install OpenShell (free software) that makes the Windows 10 start menu act like Windows 7 style. (Windows 10 new look is probable one of the greatest reasons people don’t like Windows 10 but with OpenShell it makes the transition much easier. I use OpenShell all the time and feel the menu is much more productivity.)  Its very customizable if you like but the default settings work great. Now a lot of our clients are also upgrading there old slow spinning drive to a SSD (Solid State Drive). The prices are very reasonable and they give a LARGE performance boost!. Boot time and loading applications are much faster. Its like getting a new PC!!. So if you need to upgrade to 10 give us a call or email and we would be glad to help.

Intel CPU’s are still in limited supply and don’t know when they come back to norm. Currently (and this changes weekly) I can still get i3s and some i7s. i5s are a hit and miss. BUT I can usually get AMD Ryzen CPUs in all ranges.

The AMD Ryzen CPU’s are a great value for performance.

Hal Nor repaired my Computer in the time they said itwould take. Three days, with pick up and delivery, I was very, very happy. They were very polite and helpful. I would give them 10 stars, if I could.
