“My computer hard drive crashed.  Computer Idiot was a referral from a friend, I read about them on Internet.  I took my computer in, and they did a great job helping me understand what happened.  They worked on my computer installed a new hard drive.  I am very pleased and will refer them any time.  I always like to use a local business, that is not a big box store.   Thank you so much, Martin and Staff.. Lori."

“We have used Computer Idiot for several years... business and personal computers! Not only did he fix our computers, he saved us from having to purchase new ones. This business is on top of all the new virus's out there and can fix it with very reasonable fees. We have also purchased refurbished computers for family members.  Oh, as well as working on computers... Martin creates logos! He created our business logo and we love it.
I've referred them to my friends and family, everyone is very happy with them.
