Getting the Right Geek for the Job

When you are looking for the best buy in computer answers about your Latham home PC consider calling Amgeek. 

Nobody likes computer trouble. No, not even in Latham. Fortunately, in Latham, when you do need help with your computer, be it support or repair, one thing is clear: you have choices. So, in Latham, the key to getting the best computer help for you is finding the right geek for the job. Here are a couple of questions you can ask yourself before you reach for the phone to help you find the best answers.


Computer Support or Computer Repair

The first thing you need to know is weather you need computer support or computer repair. It is easy to confuse computer repair and computer support. Even Google lumps computer repair and computer support together. Just type “computer support Latham NY” in the search box and you likely to get results for “Computer repair Latham NY”. But computer repair and computer support can actually employ two completely different sets of skills.


Computer Repair

Is your computer physically damaged? Then you need computer repair. Today, with the intricacy and delicacy of modern miniaturized components, computer repair can require skills more akin to watchmaking than those of software engineer. Aside from an occasional hard drive or power supply replacement most “computer repairs” involve the replacement of display screens or internal circuit boards or power jacks. These types of computer repairs can easily cost more than the device is worth, especially if the computer is more than a couple of years old. You are often better off finding some who can salvage your data and transfer it to a new device.


Computer Support

If, however, your computer is slow or if your computer is just running poorly. If your email is stuck or Yahoo won't work, Facebook won't load or you can't sign into your bank or you've caught the latest computer virus or malware, you don't need computer repair, you need computer support. If it is not broken but you still can't use need computer support.


IT or Geek
Is it Business or Personal

Where is this computer? What is it used for? Is your computer used in the Latham of a large corporation, networked with 10 or more other computers? If so, you need an IT company. They excel at serving large businesses with highly specialized systems and where users are tightly controlled because lost time can cause major drops in production and revenue. IT companies can charge hundreds of dollars an hour and for bigger businesses, can be well worth every penny.


Some geeks work for big box stores
A few are with the mob
Some of us are really neat
But most of us are slobs


Call Amgeek

Is your computer is used mostly at home or in a very small business. Most IT pros won't willingly stoop to support personal computers. Personal computer problems are tougher and the pay is less. Frankly, real IT pros often don't have the time, patience or skills to properly support the “wild side” - personal and small business computers. You need a geek. Geeks can be great at giving the personalized support that home and very small business computer users need.


Finding the Right Geek for the Job
Now it is Time to Choose Who

From Latham you can call out of towners like Best Buy, large chains like Staples, local chains and like Computer Renaissance  , conglomerates like the Hitmen and a few independent geeks like me, Amgeek. Yep, in Latham when you need a computer repair or support you can call in the“Squad”, contract with the “Mob” or engage your very own personal geek.

Making Windows Great
Its What I do

I support desktop and laptop computers running Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, and to a lesser extent support those with Linux and Apple software. I also support (but not repair) Smartphones and tablets, especially those running Android. I help people in Latham, and elsewhere, make better use of their computers, the Internet and search engines for both business and pleasure.

So now it is up to you Latham. You have to to pick support or repair and the right geek for the right job: be it a “Squad” , the “Mob” or just a... ummm...geek :)

You know who gets my vote.
