This past year has been an exciting one in many respects. It has definitely been a roller coaster of a ride. The ups and downs of the economy, the re-election of the first African-American president, the ongoing conflict in the Middle East. So many newsworthy events took place it’s nearly impossible to comment on them all.
It’s 2013! Happy New Year! Where did 2012 go and doesn’t it seem like we were just celebrating the beginning of 2012? Well you know the old saying “Time flies when you’re having fun!”. 2012 has been a wild ride for us here at Geek Easy Computers, but overall it’s been a fun and exciting trip!
Two years ago, Geek Easy Computers was merely the idea of a couple of guys named Silvano and Nate. Hard work and devoted dedication to providing quality customer service to their community has resulted in the premier Computer Sales & Repair shop in the Kalamazoo and surrounding areas. Geek Easy is also the ONLY full service computer shop located in downtown Kalamazoo.
Another of the mighty have fallen. Hewlett-Packard (HP – the worlds largest personal computer maker), coinciding with their Touch Pad disaster, is selling off their PC division after decades of making computers for the consumer and business markets.
“Hewlett-Packard… on Thursday confirmed that it is considering selling its personal computer business, along with announcements of an end to its tablet computer and smartphone products.” – English.news.cn
So what does this mean to you as a consumer and user of HP PC products. It may mean nothing, depending on what happens to the PC division. It could mean a nightmare for trying to get tech support, repair, or parts from HP as they transition through this process. One thing is for sure, HP as we know it and have loved it for years will cease to exist in its current state. As history has shown us, these major changes with companies like Hewlett-Packard rarely translate to “good times” for consumers.
Regardless of the path HPs future takes, we at Geek Easy want you to know we will continue to support HP PCs with tech service and repair. Until the changeover process is completed, we recommend holding off on any purchases or service requests from HP as your transaction could be held up in the mire of red tape that typically accompanies this type of move.
Geek Easy will always be your point of reliable support. You can always source us for any of your PC or Mac needs!
