2018 Turquoise Coast Photo Competition


Another one bites the dust

October 4, 2018 by Jason Harris

Another one bites the dust? No, not this time.

This is a before/after shot of the inside of the air intake in a laptop. It might not be noticable from the outside, but it was causing problems on the inside. The laptop would work fine if you just used Facebook or Google. But as soon as any advanced processing was done the laptop would shutdown. Without sufficient airflow the processor inside quickly overheats. The laptop shuts down because if it didn't the whole thing would catch fire.

Not the easiest of repairs but the laptop worked fine once complete.

The sad thing is that most other computer shops would just tell you the computer is too old and start trying to sell you a new one. If you get told that, bring it in for a free quote. You might be surprised.

Latest Intel 8th gen

July 4, 2018 by Jason Harris

Some pictures from a recent computer build featuring the latest Intel 8th generation i7 processor.

This is for people who want to get a lot done on their computer, and who don't want to wait around for it. To take full advantage of the performance available, this is built with a Samsung 970 EVO M2.SSD. Together they provide fast start up and load times, super responsive computing, and the power to run workstation applications. The fact that it is also awesome for gaming has nothing to do with it!
