Actnet Advanced Technology

Actnet understands that you can’t always find the system you need in a pre-packaged box. For home use, we can build any system that ranges from a simple internet PC to an intense gaming machine. For office use, we can build all the dependable workstations you need while architecting, installing, and maintaining a corporate network that is optimal for your business. Whether it’s the computer, the network, or the servers that connect them all, we can provide a tailored solution for your situation.

Actnet strives to differentiate our service from the typical build-to-order site by providing professional consultation as part of each request. Our goal is to deliver the perfect solution for your needs at an affordable price.

Actnet can build the machine of your dreams or just the machine you need. Leveraging our large selection of top quality components, we can customize any part of your computer including a more personalized look and feel. If we don’t have the parts in stock, we can order items to fulfill any request. For our computer savvy customers, we’ll build according to your specifications. For those customers who aren’t as savvy, we’ll use our years of experience to build the best machine to fit your circumstances.

The standard turnaround time for building a custom computer is three to five business days. If you have an emergency, we can turn around repairs the same day if we have the necessary components in stock. A variety of pre-built systems are also in stock for pick up in our store or to have delivered to your home or office.

We can install and repair any operating system including all versions of Windows. Newly built machines do not have to come equipped with Vista as we can install any of the previous Windows versions.

Upgrade Services – keeping up with new software and the demands put on the performance of our computers by our work and ever evolving web technology is not easy. Without upgrades, we may find it difficult to receive email, open documents, view content on the web, run graphic intense applications, remain safe from security holes, and maintain an adequate level of performance. A software or hardware upgrade is often the answer to the frustrating ‘work-around’ you use everyday and those troublesome performance problems.

Bring your system into our office, ship it to us, or call to have it picked up and we can upgrade your software and hardware as needed. If you are not sure that you need an upgrade, give us a call or send us an email describing what you see when using your machine.
