Computers & Laptops Alice Springs

Buying a Computer, Notebook Or Laptop

Some of us rely on laptops. We need convenient access to our files wherever we go.

Often a tablet, even our smartphone, will be up to the task. In most cases, many of us will still need the luxury of a desktop computer with a bigger screen and seemingly boundless storage space on tap.

How do you make the most sensible decision when it comes to buying a new computer or replacing an old one? You need an eye to the future but we all know that technology moves in mysterious ways. And quickly. You don’t want to invest in technology that then sits idle while you wish you’d bought the one you passed up—eBay is bloated with the cast-offs that no longer serve the purpose intended.

We’ve been at the coalface for 20 years, providing practical and sensible IT solutions for the needs of people in remote locations, throughout SA, WA and NT, as well as in Alice Springs, who cannot afford to fall behind in business.

Before you make your purchasing decision on a laptop, notebook, desktop, or any computer hardware, make a quick call to the team at Red Centre Technology Partners. We will be happy to steer you away from the lemons and provide you with some well-informed advice.

Our partnership with Leading Edge Computers gives you an easy way to shop online. Give us a call to find out more. 

Our advice, of course, is always independent and focused purely on what will work best for your specific needs.

Computer & laptop repairs

Virus removal and device security

One of the most common computer/laptop repairs we come across is the removal of viruses and malware. If left unattended, these viruses can do some serious damage to your device, such as stealing valuable information and data stored on your hard drive. At RCTP, our friendly professionals are experienced in removing all viruses and malware. Using up-to-date software, we can also secure your device against future attacks and offer safeguarding advice to prevent an incident like this from happening again.

Internet issues

Our professionals have extensive experience in solving internet issues that may be affecting your devices. Whether it’s connection issues with your router, slow internet performance or streaming delays, our team members are skilled in getting to the root of the problem and will offer advice to prevent these issues from arising in the future. An example of a solution would include the installation of troubleshooting software, and we’re also very happy to show you how this works so you know what to look out for in the future.

Computer/laptop parts

At RCTP, we understand that sometimes, problems with your device can be cosmetic, rather than internal. Our technicians are happy to replace the parts of your device that are damaged, such as the screen, mousepad and keyboard. However, rest assured that we’re also skilled at replacing batteries and motherboards should your laptop or computer be experiencing power failures.

Slow speeds

If your laptop or computer is running slowly, there could be a number of factors causing this, including a lack of storage space on your device. It’s also common for older models to run more slowly as software becomes out of date. If this is an issue that concerns your computer, the experts at RCTP can identify the root of the problem and fix it so that your laptop runs at lightning-fast speed again. Our professionals can also offer advice to customers on the common causes of slow speeds and how to prevent these.
