THE ½ Yearly Clearance is now on at Harvey Norman Waurn Ponds Computers and customers are invited to check it out to see Geelong’s biggest range of computers in store.
Proprietor Peter Bartlett said the latest designs of computers and laptops in the Modern PC range were proving very popular with customers.
“They’re slimmer, lighter, with better battery life – it’s more suitable for everyone’s needs. People want a portable computer and to use it almost like a tablet and a computer at the same time.”
He said gaming computers were also making a comeback, with the bigger brands offering them.
“They dropped off for a while, and then they’ve been really popular again.
“I think a lot of people are going online and seeing e-sports and how popular that’s getting, and that’s driving the market a little bit, especially now a lot of the big brands – HP, Acer, Lenovo – are getting into the gaming space and supporting it, whereas previously it was all custom-built computers.”
Mr Bartlett said anyone looking to upgrade their existing computer could use Harvey Norman’s full range of software services, starting from as low as $49.
Services include setting up software services, or transferring data from an old computer or laptop to a new one.
“The good thing about that is that it is fixed cost – whether it takes us five, or 10, or 15 hours, it’s still the same low fixed cost,” he said.
“We had a MacBook recently where we spent almost two full days on it for a $99 service to make sure we got all of the customer’s data.”
