About

We believe that parents and children are disadvantaged if they do not have the right technology in their homes. Hardware is expensive and internet rates are sky rocket.

We are a Lawrence computer and service retailer. With a focus on providing the advice, services and hardware to help people get the  affordable technology they need that makes a difference in their lives.

Problem that at times, becomes ignored:  

     The digital  divide in Lawrence Ma is real, 27% of the  35 people we surveyed did not own a computer connected to the internet. We identified four barriers that were factors of the problem in Lawrence Ma. Most homes do not have a computer connected to the internet.

  • Income 

  • Language

  • Transportation

  • Experience

Solutions to the four barriers mentioned above:

  • Provide affordable laptops and Pc’s for less than $200 with a 19.99/month internet service.

  • Provide support both in Spanish and English at our business location.

  • No longer does an individual have to far to get services, hardware and advice. Our store front is located right before the MVRTA Bus Terminal . Therefore people with no vehicles can come from Lowell, dracut, methuen and all surrounding cities.

  • People have never owned a computer, and when they get one they have no idea how to use it. We are providing FREE classes, that will teach the basics of using a personal computer wisely.

What we need from you? 

  • Volunteers that can dedicate at-least 1-2 hrs a week

  • We need large 200+ companies that are willing to recycle with us.

  • Establishment that can hold at least 20 people.

  • Know of any facilities that need to dispose of their computers or laptops securely?

Note:

We have partnered up with a company that’s compliance in Secure Hard Drive Erasure/ Destruction and provide Data Destruction Reports.
