What People Are Saying

Keir dropped my iPad and cracked the screen. Darren from Computermanic saved the day. Great price, great service, iPad is as good as new. Kept me informed every step of the way!
Dom Brierley,
Outstanding service within a time frame that few companies can meet with. Excellent knowledge of both hardware and software application across the board. I would highly recommend this company for both commercial and personal works.

Well done Darren, your customer service is faultless.

Lorna Vaughan, Reading
I have used Computermanic on a few occasions and have been very pleased by the results and the very competitive pricing. The mobile service is particularly good, doesn't matter what the problem is they have a solution.
Definately a 5 STAR Service!!

Terry A,
I had a problem with my laptops and Darren gave me great advice as to what other software I needed. He took care of all the malware and viruses I had on them and I was really happy with the service and knowledge from Darren at Computermanic so much so he is helping look after my network of computers in both my offices. I can't thank Darren and all the team at Computermanic enough.
Richard David Brown,

(Corporate Cleaning Services),
Brilliant, fast & friendly service. He turned around my macbook pro's battery replacement & SSD upgrade very quickly. Thanks very much
James Clayton,
I've used Computermanic twice now and got a great service both times. First repair was replacing the disc drive on my i-Mac that my toddler had squeezed three cd's into, second was recently, clearing up the same machine when it got a series of viruses. Both fixes done within 24 hours at the weekend and after-service was beyond expectations. Would recommend highly.

Absolutely fantastic, service was excellent, created a great website for us and repaired our laptop for a reasonable cost

Darren did an AMAZING job on my Macbook Pro! I originally asked for a battery replacement, but as the laptop had gotten increasingly slow and unresponsive, Darren diagnosed that after 7 years of constant use, the hard drive needed replacing too. He did a speedy job on it and managed to get it back to me in 4 days, and it's so much better than it was! now with a Solid State Drive. High quality at a low cost - thank you Darren!

To say that Darren is a lifesaver would be an understatement. He’s a Mac paramedic and miracle worker having saved the day for me on several occasions. Excellent service and great value, give this man a knighthood. Darren should really be working at Apple HQ in Cupertino, so I’m really pleased to have a man of his skill and endless knowledge here in Reading.
Paul Tippett - Creative Director, Vitamin P,
I was devastated when my Macbook wouldn't power on and found Darren of Computermanic online. I gave him a call on Saturday night and he came and collected the machine the next day. He communicated with me via phone and email and I'm happy to say that he was able to repair it! Within 24 hours of him collecting the unit it was in my hands repaired and working more efficiently that it has done in a long time! Darren is very professional, polite and an absolute star. I'd highly recommend him and would definitely use again and recommend to others!
Angela Youssef,
Absolutely brilliant. Super polite and knows his stuff back to front. I was expecting the repair Of my MacBook Pro to take up upto a week but Darren rang me within 3 hours having fixed it. I highly recommend!!!
Dave Kayani, Reading
Darren of Computermanic gives a very fast and accurate solution to whatever your problem or requirement is. He built me a super fast PC/Mac that works very well in both OS. The PC has worked so well in Windows 10, running all the software I require as a graphic designer that I now use that side of the computer the most. I had been a Mac user since 1986 so for me to happily change sides should explain a lot.
Roger Farr,
With a laptop that wouldn’t turn on and broken casing that made it difficult to open, I was concerned about needing expensive repairs or having to buy a new laptop altogether. Instead Computermanic was the perfect solution. Darren kept me updated all of the way whilst ordering the necessary parts and making any repairs in good time and at a fair price. I would definitely recommend.
Kieran, Reading

Sean Iremonger, Reading
5 Star Fabulous service and knowledge. Darren is great at resolving complex problems efficiently and quickly. Genuine nice chap
Nick Burrington, Theale Reading
Computamanic has quite literally dragged 2 of my laptops out of the 2010 world and given me the best performance my macs can ever achieve. 10 seconds to boot Sierra! AMAZING!!! Not only that, but the depth and breadth of their knowledge is enormous. Computermanic is the company I have been looking for since 1988. I can't recommend them more. Fantastic value t'boot! (Pun intended.)
John Garrett, Ruislip, Middx
Darren did a brilliant job with my Mother-In-Law's computer which is so important in stopping her becoming isolated and keeping her independence. When they picked it up it was so slow it was almost unusable, but a few days later its running great *and* has been optimized to help her continue to use it as her memory deteriorates. I really appreciated Darren's excellent communication while we worked together to customize the computer to address her problems and meet her needs and the price was super reasonable.
Ellie Hopkins, Reading
When you have your laptop broken and your project submission is due, with Christmas round the corner and the so-called popular repair shops showing you a wait time till next year, Darren was my saviour. You don't have to walk a thousand miles to get God, its close to Coley Park..I would surely recommend him to all my friend at the Uni.
Ranajay Aich, University of Reading
Darren at Computermanic has done an excellent job in cleaning up and de-junking my PC. I clicked on a link in an email which turned out to be not genuine and potentially malicious. I turned off the PC and contacted Darren who was able to look at it clean it up within 24 hours. I have been using Computermanic for years now and I cant recommend them enough. They provide a great service and real value for money.
David, Caversham Reading
I contacted Darren just prior to Christmas with an issue and even though he was quite busy he took the time to help me out. He was very understanding, knowledgeable and gave excellent advice. He fixed my computer quickly and was very well priced compared to some competition quotes.

I highly recommend Darren and if I ever have an issue again I will be back.

Five Stars Gr8 stuff- Darren Had to upgrade my mac - job done Swiftly and have very flexible timing now my mac is flying it's like opening an app on the phone
Joezuff, Reading
Personally I find egos can often come to the forefront when it comes to computer management, a lot of diverging opinions and lecturing. Darren and Computer Manic brings a more honest, down-to-earth approach to his computer repairs, whilst also demonstrating an extraordinary work ethic. A no brainer if the pc's failing, or you just need a few upgrades, couldn't recommend a better guy for the job.
Adam Burrington, Reading
Excellent from start to finish.. Super quick service.. and my MAC now works! Thank you Darren for super efficient service .
Steffie , Pangbourne
Having used Darren's services for years I have complete confidence in his technical expertise and knowledge. He is always professional, approachable and explains each stage of what has to be done and the costs involved - which are much better than going into larger main stream companies. I'd highly recommend Computermanic.
Colin McIntosh,
Thank you very very much for fixing my external backup hard drive. I thought I had lost everything. Delighted and relieved at your prompt turn around time and very much appreciated. Thank you again.
Kathryn Fell,
Many thanks to Darren at Computermanic Ltd for a brilliant screen replacement job on my very bent Macbook Pro. Great prices (half the price of Apple), collection and delivery included.
Oliver Dungey,
Computermanic gets a 5***** from me. Great customer service! I'm loving both my Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. Thanks to Darren, I will definitely recommend Computermanic if you're having any problems with your computer or laptops both Macintosh or Windows PC.
