Q: Can you upgrade my system to better meet my needs at a reasonable price?

A: We do complete software configurations including upgrading your older computers (Windows 7 and above) to the new Windows 10.  The labor to do the upgrade depends on how you want it done. A “clean” install, meaning backing up your data, reformatting the hard drive and installing a New copy of Windows 10 usually goes for $220 including the license for Windows.

An “In-place upgrade” is when we take your existing system with all your software and data and migrate it to Windows 10. This is a more time consuming process and therefor costs a bit more. Usually $300 complete including all updates.
