Please be advised that, in order to keep costs and prices low, I do not have a storefront. Please do not go looking for my store! I offer on-site consultant services at your home or business. As a result, my prices are often half of what you would expect to pay at the big stores. Less overhead! For fastest service, call 281-773-4772 or e-mail jimboballard@gmail.com

Why are new laptops so inexpensive?
They're LOADED with spyware talking to the mother ship. Junkware publishers are subsidizing computer manufacturers. They've got junk installed that you don't need or want hogging resources. I'll take care of these problems for you and, in addition, create recovery media for WHEN, NOT IF, the hard disk fails, and help you build a backup plan. Please call to make an appointment. "On-Site - At Your Service!"


 Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13-Inch (White - Early 2008/Penryn), 2.4 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (T8300), 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, 160GB SATA hard drive, DVD RW/CD-RW SuperDrive, Intel GMA X3100 integrated GPU, 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution), AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire "400" port, two USB 2.0 ports, optical digital audio in/out, and video out capabilities (mini-DVI) that supports an external display, "scrolling Trackpad", built-in iSight video camera, "MagSafe" power connector. The battery holds a charge and the magsafe charger is included.

This machine has been configured as "dual-boot" - it runs OS X Snow Leopard (the latest version of OS X that will run) and Linux Mint 18.3. Snow Leopard is getting rather old now but still works fine at the time of this writing. Safari is dated - I wouldn't use it, so I installed the Opera browser which works fine. What really shines here, and was my motive for acquiring this machine, is Linux Mint 18.3 - the latest and greatest. Runs great! Includes Firefox, LibreOffice and much more. Note: If you are looking for a machine that will run macOS Sierra, this one is not the one for you. Snow Leopard is the maximum on this unit. $150 firm - cash only. See photos below.

Need a new phone or computer cable and jack?

Planning on getting a new Windows PC? For safe use on the internet, you’ll need to have it set up properly – personal data migrated to the new system, recovery media created, bundled junk software removed, firewall holes closed, Antivirus installed and configured, all critical software updated, backup plan and schedules in place; etc. A new computer is not safe for use until this work is complete. I can do this work for you for way less than you may think - usually takes takes two days to complete. For fastest service, call 281-773-4772 or e-mail jimboballard@gmail.com
