These days were are often replacing older hard drives with modern ‘solid state’ units. It’s an easy performance boost for any computer, and with SSD drives costing around £35 for 240GB there’s never been a better time!
As a result we are left with quite a pile of older mechanical drives to dispose of at times!

New Edge! Microsoft are gradually replacing Edge with a new version which is compatible with older version of Windows and Mac as well as Windows 10. It’s quite an improvement and well worth a try! It also has an updated logo - which means our giant Edge poster needed an update too.

BROADBAND ISSUES!
Unfortunately it seems there's a widespread issue with broadband connections today. Sky are down, and BT have some issues reported - so the chances are this will be causing problems for other providers as well.
Reported issues are from the Angus area, although Sky are saying "East of Scotland" problems at the moment.

Tiny custom PC build today. This computer is so small you can mount it on the back of a monitor (using the supplied VESA bracket) to create your own All-in-one custom PC!
Interestingly the mainboard is also tiny so the M.2 SSD actually installs on the underside!

You'll see this sign on our door from Monday. We are open but would encourage you to please contact us before visiting in person - this will avoid you having to wait to be seen, avoid multiple customers arriving at the same time, and guarantee someone will be available to help you.

COVID-19 PRECAUTION UPDATE JUNE 2020

We continue to be ready to support everyone with their IT requirements and have adapted our processes given the on-going situation.

The Scottish Government has announced that “non-essential” shops may reopen from Monday 29th June provided suitable plans are in place to protect staff and customers.

We plan to continue operating our current door-entry system and will not be freely open for drop-in customers. We would continue to encourage you to contact us beforehand to agree an appointed time to come down. If you arrive without prior arrangement you may need to wait outside, or we might not be able to see you at all as the shop may not be covered at all times.

Surfaces such as door handles, doorbell, and counter will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes regularly throughout the day. We will provide a tub for you to place smaller items in when dropping off (laptops or smaller).

Where possible we will handle your devices wearing inspection gloves and clean any appropriate surfaces before return to you.

Call-out options for consumers will be undertaken in only limited circumstances – our preferred methods at the moment are either remote assistance or customer drop off/collection.

Onsite service for business customers will be provided and we will adhere to the measures you have put in place in your own premises.

Our business hours remain 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday but we may be unable to accept visitors without an appointment.

We hope everyone is continuing to keep safe. Just a reminder that our retail shop remains CLOSED as per Scottish Government guidelines. There's still no official date for when this might be able to change.

We are however open for remote assistance, and can organise drop-off, courier delivery, or collection by appointment for any requirements you may have.

In addition to the above we can accept items for repair at the shop - this must be prearranged where you will be given an appointed time to come in. We have a process in place to enable contactless drop-off and collection.

Finally we have been adapting the shop to make it safe for everyone in anticipation of more relaxed rules coming soon. In particular we have reduced the size of the public area and are introducing a door-entry system so we can control access and limit numbers as required.
