While I was out visiting Amagansett, I brought my laptop with me to work on some of these articles for IgoUgo when my laptop crashed. Now, there is nothing more terrible than that for a person like me; a person who doesn't understand the inner workings of a computer.Frantically, I sped into town and looked for an Internet café or phone booth (it's funny how I looked for an Internet café first then a phone booth since phone booths have gone the way of Old Yeller) so I could call to find a repair man or something. I thought of calling Geek Squad but I have used them before so I was up the proverbial creek. Luckily, though, I went for a cup of coffee to a coffee store I used to head to down the street, and I found that my overpriced coffee shop was a new computer repair shop. What are the odds, really?So, I ran in and asked the prices for them to look at my laptop. The guy behind the counter, Lee, told me that he could look at it and fix it in an hour and a half at $85 an hour. He said that he knew the problem and could do his magic. I ran back to my car, scooped up my laptop and jetted back to the shop. Lee said that, while I waited I could use the Internet in his shop for $5 per 15 minutes. I didn't really need the Internet, but tooled around on it for 10 minutes then left for lunch, promising to return in an hour.
When I got back, my computer was fully fixed and he finished faster than expected. The problem was that some wire was messed up and he just put a new one in it. All that for a little wire! He only charged me $94 with tax and with the 10 minutes on the Internet, the whole experience cost me under $100 and that is still cheaper than Geek Squad was to me at home; they ran me an uncomfortable $250 to only half fix my computer because here I was again getting it fixed.So, if you are in Amagansett, or anywhere in the Hamptons for that matter, call the Computer Shop at (631) 267-3088 or just stop by their location on Main Street at 136 Main Street in Amagansett. Lee, or any of the other employees, are all extremely knowledgeable in the computer repair field and are willing to help you at reasonable rates and not ones that are generally so out of control.
