We recommend replacing your home computer once every 5 years. Your computer or laptop may last longer than this, but over a long period of time computers tend to slow down, due to the fact that the software installed on them (Such as Microsoft Windows) is constantly being updated and thus becomes more and more demanding on the computer’s hardware.
If your computer is still working well and it is over 5 years old then there is no problem with keeping it for as long as it works. However, the only thing we would suggest in this case is that you take a regular backup of your data, otherwise it may fail one day and you could lose any data that is not backed up.
New computer and laptop service
We offer a full-service package for new computers and laptops which includes the following:
- Sourcing the most suitable computer based on your requirements and budget
- Purchasing the computer or laptop on your behalf
- Performing pre-setup including un-boxing and any required customization
- Delivery and setup at your house
- Migration of all data and configuration from your existing computer
- Migration of applications where possible
- Printer and other device setup
- Help with using your new computer
- Aftercare service for any issues or questions you have following the install
We offer full transparency when helping you to purchase and install a new computer and as such we will show you the direct link to the supplier website for the computer(s) that we recommend. We will also provide full details of any optional extras such as monitors and software as well as a transparent pricing structure for the cost of us purchasing and installing the computer. This way you know exactly what you are paying for.
As part of our service, we can also offer several different options to suit your budget.
Custom built computers
In some cases, an “off the shelf” computer may not be suitable. For example, you might have some very specific, or demanding, requirements. In these cases, we offer a custom computer building service where we can source all of the individual components for your computer and build it from scratch.
Once again we can offer a fully transparent pricing structure for this service and we can build a custom computer to any specification that you require.
Dave was extremely helpful and informative when we decided to purchase a new PC. He gave us options to select from and we ordered and received the computer within a week. Dave copied all info from our previous computer and gave us help using our new one.
When our ELDERLY computer would not start we decided to contact Qwerty IT Services in the hope that it could be saved and all its files. The fact that David would come to the house was a bonus. David responded quickly and was so pleasant and friendly, explaining what was needing done in a way we could understand without being patronising.
Our elderly computer is now up and running but we know that it is on borrowed time so we are now working with David to have a new computer built to our own specifications.
Excellent service from start to finish.
This service was excellent. The person came to my house, assessed what the IT problem was with my email and attachments and fixed it quickly. I have had no problems ever since.
A good reliable and bespoke service which I will definitely use again if required.
Thank you for your prompt attention re setting up my wi fi printer to my I pad .
