I know how worrying and frustrating it can be when the gadgets you depend on stop working properly. So I talk in plain English and explain what we can do about a problem. You won’t ever be left scratching your head. And when I have fixed your problem, you can join with others and write a review to to say thank you. It’s always a pleasure to share encouragement for I work some long hours to help you and for considerably less than others standard service charge fees.

I provide value by recommending certain IT products and helping to educate customers on how to make technology work for them (usually as a free part of other paid workshop services).

Apple - Windows Integration

Apple - Windows Integration: Laptops, Tablets & Mobile Phones
Computers, Tablets and Mobile Phones

For most of us computers, tablets and mobile phones have become integrated into our everyday life. For all the great advantages that this technology provides, setting up and maintaining your devices can often be tricky and time-consuming. So, to ensure your support needs are met, and everything runs smoothly, I am here to share my knowledge and help you get the best from your purchase. New computer, old computer, even really old computer (yes even that old Windows XP).

I have the skill to transfer your data and (often) programs from your old machine to your new one, whether it be PC to PC, Mac to Mac, or PC to Mac. Additionally, I can build you a multiple operating system; such as running Windows 10 on a Mac OS X. And that is often a technical challenge for the average computer owner. I can even downgrade operating systems if required and without losing your current data. I use external disk imaging (archiving) to with your data to make sure nothing gets lost.

Both Windows and Mac have access to Adobe Reader, iTunes, iCloud, Thunderbird, Gmail, Google Chrome and Firefox. To Sync from your iPhone to your PC is easy enough with iCloud.

Do I need [want] a Windows laptop, iPad, MacBook or Chromebook?

Current devices broadly run on three different operating systems that run on the four main varieties of portable devices:

Windows 10

Some of the most common devices run Microsoft"s Windows operating system. They are able to perform wide-ranging tasks and have the greatest variety in models, brands and pricing. Microsoft recently released Windows 10 S, which is designed to compete with ChromeOS, limiting some apps and downloads. Windows laptops have also been considered [much] more vulnerable to viruses. Update: Microsoft have recently released a new Surface Pro Ultra-light and versatile "3-in-1" device.


The common tasks people perform on their laptop or desktop PC are the very same tasks in which the iPad excels: surfing the web, checking email, finding out what friends and family are up to on Facebook, playing games, balancing the checkbook, writing a letter or a document for school, etc. General productivity has also become increasingly easy on the iPad. The virtual touchpad makes manipulating text easier, the iPad supports Microsoft Office and includes a free version of Apple's iWork, and if you need to do a lot of typing you simply connect a Bluetooth keyboard.


The MacBook Pro, MacBook and MacBook Air are all Apple laptops running on macOS. They are generally seen as powerful, smooth and reliable (require less service). They are best for high performance software and connectivity to other Apple products, but are [likely] more expensive.

Chrome OS

Google’s ChromeOS used on Chromebooks is largely limited to online use, essentially operating like a web browser. Rather than installing programs users access them through Google's Chrome web store. They have limited storage capacity, but are fast and inexpensive.

Generally businesses lean more towards Windows cloud-based solutions, which is a fancy way of saying they are building software on the web, many business users use software that requires Microsoft Windows.
