macOS High Sierra Upgrade
By Asheville Computer Company / MacNews / / 0 Comments

MacOS High Sierra has been available for a couple of weeks now and we are ready to upgrade your Mac to the latest version. If you are hesitant about upgrading to new releases of macOS or not sure how it works, we can help.
Instead of you upgrading and taking a chance that you have issues or the upgrade fails let us do it for you. We take the time to do a full system backup prior to upgrade. This keeps your computer and data safe if the update results in issues or fails. You can be sure that your data is safe prior to the upgrade. We upgrade you to the latest version, check compatibility with existing programs and perform additional updates as necessary. We will also check for overall system health and recommend maintenance or upgrades where possible.

High Sierra is compatible with the following models:

MacBook (Late 2009 or later)
MacBook Air (2010 or later)
MacBook Pro (2010 or later)
Mac mini (2010 or later)
Mac Pro (2010 or later)
iMac (Late 2009 or later)

If you own one of the models above give us a call to get your worry-free upgrade to macOS High Sierra.
If you have an earlier model Mac and want to get upgraded to a previous version of macOS we can help with that too. We can upgrade to any older version of macOS with the same safe process.

It's a Mac, Mac, Mac World

We are seeing more and more Macs this year with issues, upgrades and data transfers. We happened to have 3 similar iMac models in at one time: 2 for an upgrade from an older iMac to a newer iMac and 1 having software issues.

We were able to transfer the user programs and data to the new iMac so that everything was exactly the same when they turned on the new machine.

The 3rd iMac was reset back to factory and the latest version of MacOS was installed to get it back up and running like new for it’s new owner.

If you are purchasing a new Mac and need help setting it up and transferring your data give us a call. We also purchase some older Macs or can help with recycling hardware.

We are one of the few shops in Asheville that work on both PCs and Macs.

macbook pro screen replacement
By Asheville Computer Company / LaptopMacRecent Work / / 0 Comments

This Macbook Pro came to us with a cracked screen. Due to the way Macbooks are constructed it’s necessary to change out the whole top of the laptop and not just the LCD screen. This customer received a few quotes around town that were significantly higher than the repair bill from us.

We were able to replace the screen for several hundred dollars cheaper than other computer shops in town and do it with a quick turnaround.

We saved the customer hundreds on the repair and a thousand or more over buying a new Macbook.

If you have a Macbook with a broken screen, bad keyboard or trackpad or isn’t running as fast as it should bring it us to get it back up and running like new again.

We service both Mac and PC hardware and software issues.

hp cleanup
By Asheville Computer Company / DesktopLaptopRecent Work / / 0 Comments

We have gathered some recent before and after photos from computers (PCs and Macs) that needed a good cleaning inside and out.

The fans on these computers continuously draw in air, dirt and dust that will eventually clog vents and cause it to overheat. This reduces the lifespan of your devices and can cause premature failure, reduce speed and functionality.

Your computer needs regular maintenance for the software and hardware. If your computer isn't running like it should bring it to us and we will get it back in shape for the new year.
