Description

Hello - I'm Craig Baker - the Eldest Geek. I'm the oldest computer dealer you will EVER run into - as I've had my computer stores for over 35 years. I had 3 computer stores in Colorado for over 30 years before I moved out here 8 years ago - and I've opened up a little shop a bit south of Alexandria directly on Rt 1. Inside the Mt Vernon Antique Center. I do ANYTHING to do with computers. You cant think of anything I don't do - and believe me people have tried. I sell good used computers and give a SIX MONTH WARRANTY on every system I sell. I fix ANY problem. with ANY computer. PC or Mac, no problem. Hardware or software, no problem. Desktop or laptop or server, no problem. And I always do FREE ESTIMATES! I also BUY broken laptops - and fix them up to get them a new home. I'll look at ANYTHING - it does not matter what happened. And I can get your data off the dead laptop as well. I have been repairing Macs for over 25 years. (since the very first Mac Classic). I can fix ANY mac with any issue - even including liquid spill damage! And I do it for half or less than what the apple stores charge. (And I can fix ones they say cant be fixed!). I do data recovery. I can get back your data even if the drive is going click-click-click - and the G**k squad tells you nothing can be done! I have about a 95% chance of recovery. No data recovered, NO charge! I also do website development. I've done over 700 websites for folks, and I've done them anywhere from $100 to $150k. And I can tell you what makes a website WORK! So if you need any computer service - give me a try - drop by my shop and check me out! I'll show you the VERY first computer I ever owned - a beautiful old NorthStar Horizon - which is the ONLY computer - EVER - to come in a Walnut Wood case!. Back then they believed in a quality computer! Call me at 703-436-4756 or email me at cdb@theeldestgeek.com!...

They found out all it needed was a new cord. New ones are no longer made but TopTech had one that would work. Saving me from having to replace the computer.

I used The Eldest Geek guys for several items including an HP laptop and an iPod Touch and I am very impressed with not only their capabilities as computer experts but also their integrity and reliability. The Eldest Geek guys were easy to find: their shop is on the 2nd floor inside the Mount Vernon Antique Store at 8101 Richmond Hwy in Alexandria. That might sound unusual to some, but when you se...

I'd done business with Craig remotely. I needed to pickup a laptop from him, and my 2011 iMac needed some updates. The laptop was ready when I got there. The memory upgrade was done VERY quickly. The system "slowness" was due to the fact that my internal hard drive had some problems. The drive was replaced very quickly. They installed Yosemite on it, and all I had to was use my Time Machine backup...

After several weeks of the screen on my laptop occasionally flickering when initially turning the computer on, the screen went completely black. The laptop would still power on but I was unable to see anything on the screen. After doing some trouble shooting I realized that I would need a professional to diagnose and fix the problem. I contacted a few local computer repair companies and Craig was ...

I gave that GEEK 3 Macbook Pro laptops to repair . I had to wait 4months till I got them back. Once they were ready some did not work right. Instead of giving it back to the GEEK, I rather got it fixed from providers on eBay. I should have seen the red flags. The shop is located on the second floor of an antique store. Very unorganized , equipment all over the place.

Repaired laptops but I got lousy service and the repair was not a100% .

Service Provider Response

This review is astounding. And causes me to question Angies List verified reviews- claims. [Member Name Removed] paid us NOTHING. ZERO. NADA. and he brought us 3 macbooks he had attempted repair on and had failed - in fact damaging the components he purchased and installed. We had one fixed next day - another (a 17in one) was just pathological. It kept failing after being repaired. It took quite a...
