Option 1. Purchase a new machine from a highstreet retailer
Pros : Quick turnaround getting a new machine.
Cons : Retailer not an expert, dedicated to try and sell you the most expensive kit.

What to do with your old data ? How to transfer email settings and reconfigure internet access ?
What do you do when it goes wrong ?
Dealing with strangers.
Built from mass produced parts, sometimes of dubious quality, built down to a price. Some parts
can be proprietary and can only be replaced from the original supplier …. at a price.
New machines often laden down with junk, ie., trials and “special offers” of little value.
The actual software is usually months, if not years out of date and represents a security risk until all
the relevant updates and Patches have been applied. This is down to you!

I’m not a Pizza tech. I’m a bonafide Limited Company, with Indemnity insurance and registered

I have a good reputation for honesty and customer service, not something I risk lightly.
Cons : OK. I am a little bit pricier than the highstreet, but in terms of the additional services on offer, I
suggest a no-contest.
Erm……. No others come to mind !
