Windows 10. Is it good or bad?

Windows 10 has been out for a while now and the big question is should I embrace it? Well the answer is pretty clear. Windows 10 runs perfect on a new machine but it can make your older system very slow. If your older machine is several years old just leave it on Windows 7 or 8.

Asus has just released a new laptop.


Asus is one of NZ’s most popular laptops at the moment. The above laptop is packed with a powerful Intel i5 CPU that runs at 2.3Ghz. They are shipping it with 8gigs of DDR4 ram and a 1 Terabyte hard drive. It is fully featured with USB 3.1, Bluetooth, Wireless, DVD-RW, HDMI and Webcam. It has a 15.6” high resolution screen that displays sharp and clear at 1366 X 768. It comes shipped with Microsoft Windows 10 Home Premium. These laptops should be in the $1600 range but we are able to supply them for $1299. We highly recommend this unit. We can come and install it at your business or home.

Our children are pioneering new ideas.


Have a look at this: Paul has set about pioneering a drone business. He is frequently asked to come and run his large drone through the sky too capture aerial images and video. The video above shows him doing a School Drone Demonstration. Has he been to your children’s school yet? Feel free to ask him to come. Several months ago he ran a Drone building day at Marco School. It was a huge success with the children building and flying a drone all in the same day.

Every child wants a drone for Christmas.

Paul has a new shipment of Drones just in. Christmas is only 45 days away. Are you looking for the perfect present without breaking the bank? He tells me the “GoDrone Nano” is the best drone in NZ for under $80 and that they are super durable. He provides a repair service for a low price if you do break it. If you would like one or two for Christmas be in quick. Here is his contact info: Cell: 022 189 3757. Home: 06 756 8800.

A great tip to help you use your computer better.


Did you know that you can cycle through open Windows by pressing the ALT and TAB keys together. This makes switching back and forth between running processes quick and painless. Give it a try. Open your browser. Now open your email and get some music playing in the background. Now just rest your left thumb on the ALT key and press the TAB key with your left ring finger. Pretty cool way to switch between open things.
