Choate Custom Computers

Founded in 2017, Choate Custom Computers provides PC repair/upgrade services, as well as phone and tablet hardware repair, to clients on the Mendocino Coast.

Using a combination of professional and personal experience, I can diagnose and repair most issues to arise on a PC desktop or laptop system. Hardware repairs are also available for smartphones, tablets, and other devices. Have a cracked screen, bad battery, broken camera or speaker, troubles with the charger port? I can help.

I also have a passion for the Linux operating system, and can help users to migrate from other systems to Linux. Let me know if you are tired of the subscriptions, fees, and usage/license restrictions of commercial software, as well as the vulnerability to malware and viruses. I can help you find other solutions to your software needs.

When I have an actual shop, I'll post directions to it here.

For now, here's a map of Mendocino:
