Windows 10 is here!!!

Windows 10 Microsoft Windows 10 was released on July 29th 2015 as a free upgrade to all Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 owners; the free offer is available for a year. We are now offering the full version in our Custom System packages.
There are a few ways to install the free upgrade:
  • You can let Windows do the upgrade using the 'Get Windows 10' option on the taskbar.
  • You can download the ISO file to a USB thumb drive or DVD and install when you want.
  • You can bring in your system for us to do the upgrade for you.
When installing you have 3 options to choice from: Upgrade keeping everything, upgrade keeping only the data or upgrade removing everything for a clean start. We suggest that you do a full backup of your system before attempting the upgrade.
Once your system has been upgraded and activated you can do future reinstalls of Windows 10 without needing to reinstall your original windows version. Changing hardware later in your computer may cause your free upgrade to expire and at that point you would need to purchase a full Windows 10 license.

If you have questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us for help.

SSD - Solid State Drives

SSD Drives Solid State Drives are Computer storage drives that use Flash Memory instead of the normal magnetic storage in tradition Hard Drives. They have no moving parts so they are more resistant to physical shock, which makes them great for laptop use. The main advantage is in their higher transfer and seek speeds. In fact SSD drives are 5 to 10 times faster that regular Hard Drives.

Now that prices for SSD drive have dropped so much its time to consider upgrading to Solid State.
I have personally upgraded my Home Desktop, Laptop, My Daughters Laptop and My Main Work System to SSD.

No other upgrade will make your computer experiance better that a fast SSD drive.

Windows XP end of support.

After April 8, 2014, technical assistance for Windows XP will no longer be available, including automatic updates that help protect your PC.
If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.

It might be time to consider replacing your old computer with one running either Windows 7 or Windows 8.
