‘We had what we thought was a major problem with our laptop losing all our data and couldn’t access the Bit Locker recovery key so took it to Smile Computers. We dealt with Chris who is a lovely genuine and very talented person. Did he manage to fix it? Of course he did. He knows his craft. We highly recommend anyone with a PC problem to use Smile. Thanks Chris.’ – Bob Patman, Halifax. June 2020
‘My Macbook started to show a black screen and malfunction past the point of reasonable repair. Regardless Chris took the time to test it in every way possible to try figure out the issue, his customer service was superb and went beyond what I expected of any business. I found that it would be cheaper to just replace my computer, but Chris refused to charge me for his services based on this even though he spent a considerable amount of time troubleshooting the issue, as well as teaching me how it was done at the same time in case I wanted to continue to attempt things myself. 5 stars! 100% will recommend, the only person I will use from now on for repairs.’ – Anonymous, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax. May 2020

I would definitely recommend and will be going back with any further technical difficulties! Thank you Chris.’ – Jenny Holmes, Mytholmroyd. January 2020

Thank you Smile Computers, I will always use you and recommend others to use you.’ – Dale Pilgrim, Halifax. June 2019
‘I was finding it very stressful trying to get my card terminal fixed! Chris knows what to look for, and spoke to the terminal company on my behalf.

Can’t fault him this time or previous times I have used Smile Computers.’ – The Blind Pig, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax. May 2019

The new laptop was Windows 10 and they transferred my data etc. over to the refurbished one all this was done within a few days.
