Change to opening hours from Monday 22nd May 2017

We have now changed our opening hours to 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and will be closed at weekends and on bank holidays.

This change is effective from Monday 22nd May 2017. If you have any questions please call us on 01793 533300 or email

We've moved, but not very far!

Following continued increasing demand for our PC and Laptop repair services we've moved into the unit next door to our previous shop, our new location will provide us with a larger workshop area and increased storage space enabling us to keep more parts in stock and offer a faster turnaround on computer repairs. 

We're pleased to say the move (probably better described as a swap with our neighbours, Swindon Bearings) went smoothly and we're open as usual while we finish unpacking and tidying up. 

Windows 10 - coming to a PC near you!

Windows 10 will be available in 7 versions, far more than you would have expected in the first place. While IoT, Mobile, Home, Enterprise and Professional were already confirmed, Mobile Enterprise and Education were unexpected. In comparison, there were only four versions of Windows 8.1 (five if you include Windows Phone 8) and one of them was Windows RT.
