Brainstorm Computers & Technology: Local Computer Doctor

Brainstorm Computers & Technology is a computer and technology repair shop in uptown Kingston, that also has computers available for rent by the hour. Shawn Conklin, the owner, calls this part of Brainstorm an Internet cafe without the coffee. The full-loaded workstations come with MS Office 2010, Adobe CS 5, and CorelDRAW x5 and are available by the hour or by the day ($5/hour for desktop $10/hour for graphic design computer). Brainstorm can also visit your crashed computer on-site.

Conklin and his staff can fix laptops, desktops, and servers. Brainstorm also offers tech laser engraving—custom engraving for leather cases, laptops, aluminum, wood, steel water bottles, etc. Conklin has graciously offered to engrave my Hudson Valley Good Stuff logo on something of my choosing, and once I figure out what it is I'd like to get engraved, I'm going to take him up on that offer. He said he would be able to engrave an iPad case so I may get the logo engraved on that.

Sorry, he doesn't fix cracked iPad screens, but when he examined mine he suggested I browse iFixit.com, which has thousands of how-to-repair-stuff videos for techies. That site is a bit over my head, though, so I may have to wait until Apple comes up with an easy cheap fix. It is nice to know there is someone local who can come to my rescue when my computer fails me. Conklin assures me that Brainstorm's turn around for repairs is much shorter than Geek Squad at the mall.
