Visionary Summer Tune-Up Special

Visionary Summer Tune-Up Special

One of the reasons we all love our Macintosh Computers is because they are nearly trouble-free. Now that Malware for Macs is so wide-spread, having a quick check-up every once in a while makes a whole lot of sense and, as they age, there are often other issues which could use some attention. Our team of Apple Authorized, skilled technicians can optimize performance, eliminate small problems, and help identify big ones before they get out of hand.

An important message from Visionary Computer regarding ISP email.

An important message from Visionary Computer regarding ISP email.

Recently, we’ve had a massive increase in the number of customers using legacy Internet Service Provider (ISP) email systems that are having increasing difficulty getting new mail, sending mail, or moving their account to a new computer or modern OS.

It’s time to Upgrade your older iPad

It’s time to Upgrade your older iPad

Those of you who know me know that I’m not the kind of person who pushes upgrading unless there is very good reason. I believe that every device has a life cycle and that so long as your device is still technologically capable, there is no reason to replace it. Apple makes wonderful products which last a good long time. They are reliable and relatively durable which sometimes is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that their long life gives you excellent value for your money. The curse is that…
