After purchasing an MacBook Air At an Apple store, Apple informed me that they could not transfer my files from my old MacBook due to harddrive issues and in the process of trying to repair the drive, they had destroyed along with the 5,000 photos on it. I contacted Northboro Computers and within 3 days Brian had backed up all my data from the "broken" hardrive onto a stand alone drive I had given him. I was then able to upload all files to my MacBook Air. Brian was professional, knowledgable and very pleasant to work with. I would recommend Brian to anyone with any PC issues - no matter the brand. Meeting his dog Zip was an added bonus.Jun 10, 2014Verified

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Pc's are personal, why arenÃÂt the companies that fix them? We take the time to understand the client, educate the client on what the problems are and go over options, itÃÂs so easy to get over whelmed and become frustrated. We believe that a little time to help a customer understand the giga this and mega that, what they do and how they differ, they then can make educated decisions on repairs and purchases. If your PC company doesnÃÂt have the time to talk to you without holding out a hand for payment, I recommend getting a new computer guy.
