New Custom-Built Computers I build new computers for customers with what they specify they want in a computer. These computers are truly custom-built computers as I build them to exactly what the customer wishes to have. I cannot build the computers as cheaply as a person can buy a mass manufactured computer. I believe in only using quality components which are more expensive to purchase, but I feel they are worth it in the fact they may well last longer.
I give a standard one year warranty for custom-built computers on hardware only. I can not give a warranty on software as I have no control as to what may occur with owner use. The components I build the computers with lots of times have a longer manufacturer warranty. If one of those components fail within the manufacturers warranty period I will replace it with a labor charge only for replacing the component after my one year warranty period is up.
I charge a flat fee of $200 labor plus the price of the components for a custom built computer.
New Purchased Computers I purchase new computers for customers that want this service. What I do is purchase the computer and set it all up before delivering to customer. I put the security programs that I recommend plus any programs desired by the customer. I also remove the bloat ware on the computer that customers do not wish to have on their computers. I transfer customers documents, pictures, etc. from their old computer, set up their email and transfer favorites, etc. when I deliver the new computer to them. The normal fee for this service is $125.
New computers whether built by me or purchased by me for customers are subject to NYS sales tax of 8% unless the customer is tax exempt.
Used Computers At times I have good used computers available that I have gone through and reloaded the Operating System, upgraded the RAM, etc. for sale at very reasonable prices. Used computers are also subject to NYS sales tax of 8% unless the customer is tax exempt.
