From as little as £10
We can repair your laptop
Laptops are fantastic pieces of equipment, but they are prone to faults. Once your warranty has expired, some companies charge as much to repair as it would cost to replace.
At Akita Computers, we realise that after spending a lot of money on a laptop, you shouldn’t be expected to throw it away and get a new one at the slightest problem. We endeavour to fix any faults we possibly can, for as little as we possibly can and we undertake repairs that other companies would not even attempt.
With our no fix – no fee policy, it’s always best to try and repair before having to think about a new one.

Why don't we provide the parts?
We decided some time ago not to supply parts for a number of reasons. The first being the cost.
The value of computer parts is a little like stocks and shares in that their value rises and falls. Buying parts in advance often left us with parts that were no longer in demand, or with prices that were no longer competitive unless we made a loss. We also realised that our customers may in fact be able to source them cheaper than we can as a business using the likes of ebay and Amazon. It is for that reason that we will guide our customers where to get the very best prices for their components and then we can fit them for our customers.
It’s also possible that a customer may not be able to afford brand new parts, especially the likes of graphics cards for gaming PC’s that can cost several hundreds. We are perfectly happy to install second hand components if a customer wants to buy from Ebay etc.
