Holiday Gift Guide 2018
- Give the Gift of Security
Do you have a family member who is constantly running into security issues on their computer? Does he have a virus or pop-up problems? These pesky little ads are more than just annoying – they can steal personal information and cause damage to your loved one’s computer and documents. A virus scan can remove all the current malware or viruses that are causing damage. After removal, add a quality virus software to keep their computer clean without interfering with their computer usage.
- Give the Gift of a New Computer
How often do you hear someone complain that their computer is too slow or too old? Getting a brand new computer for someone is an incredibly generous gift. When purchasing a new computer for a loved one, consider their lifestyle and how they will use it. Desktop computers are great if most of their computer usage is done at home and stationary. If you know the individual will likely use their computer in various places, a laptop will be a better option.
- Give the Gift of an Upgrade
Your current computer needs some maintenance from time to time, this includes upgrading it. Your current computer needs some maintenance from time to time, this includes upgrading it. If you know someone who is using a computer that just can’t keep up with their usage, additional RAM may solve their pain points. Or maybe they have saved too many music or image files on their computer and need to invest in a larger, faster hard drive such as a solid state drive (SSD). Updated hardware can really change the performance of a computer for a lot less than a new computer would cost. Offer to have your loved one’s machine inspected by you local Geeks on Site tech to run a test to see where the upgrade may be needed.
- Give the Gift of Peace of Mind
We store so much on our computers now, images and videos of important milestones, personal documents, and much more. Imagine if all of that just disappeared one day because your computer crashed. A simple solution is to always back up the content of your hard drive onto an external hard drive for safe storage. If you are purchasing this gift for someone who isn’t very technical, you can set this up to be done on the backend so that they never have to do anything other than continue using their computer as they normally would but with peace of mind that their images, videos, important documents, and more will be there even if their hard drive crashes.
- Give the Gift of Education
Do you know someone that wants to learn the basics of using their computer? Or maybe they want to learn how to do something a little more technical, such as setting up a network? Give the gift of one-on-one training with an expert from Geeks on Site. Training sessions can take place right at home.
Geeks on Site hopes you have a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones but should you need assistance with your holiday gift guide, repairs or upgrades of your own, don’t hesitate to contact us.
