Customer Question
Amazon is selling refurbished...

Amazon is selling refurbished Imacs for around $350, but they keep indicating that Windows is installed. How easy to simply convert to Apple operating system?

Technician's Assistant: How much experience do you have with this particular machine?

I own one that is dying, fully backed up, but extremely slow

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

Has the highest level of system it will support. By updates I assume you mean the operating system.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Shopping on Amazon, ran into the reference "Windows"

Do you by chance have a link to the Imac you are looking at so I can have a look for myself?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
