Bob's Onsite Computer Repair

Macs are being infected by malicious threats more than Windows PC's for the first time in history!

For the first time ever, Macs outpaced WindowsPCs in the number of malicious (viruses, malware, spyware, ransomware, adware, etc.) threats detected per endpoint.Don't believe the hype that Macs are bulletproof computers that don't get infected. The more people using Macs, the more that criminals are going to target them and try to infect or compromise these systems.


The days of Apple telling consumers that their products are safer than PCs are over, unless they simply continue to lie to their customers, which Apple has had no problem doing in the past.The only reason Apple claimed that their products were safer than their competitors was because less people used them than PCs, therefore criminals had less reason to create malicious software to infect Apple products. Now, with more and more people buying Apple products, there is more reason than ever for criminals to start targeting Apple products and Apple consumers will soon begin to see just how bulletproof Apple products AREN'T. 


So remember, Apple products are not virus-proof or uninfectable. This is simply a lie and false advertising. Even your Mac needs reliable anti-virus/anti-malware software!

Our laptops come with a minimum of 30 days parts/labor warranty through Bob's Onsite Computer Repair or a warranty directly through the manufacturer. Laptops sold with a manufacturer warranty remaining always takes precedence over a 30 day warranty directly through us.

Buying laptops and desktops!

Buying laptops and desktops! I don't buy anything more than 5 or 6 years old though! I definitely pay better than a pawn shop!

I also buy laptops and desktops that aren't working or are broken.


Email me or text the model number or, if it's a Dell, the service tag #, along with condition and if anything is wrong with it along with the price you are asking for it. Include pictures, if possible!

The Truth About Apple Products

Wasting hours, if not days, trying to fix your own PC unsuccessfully, unplugging your PC desktop from the dozens of twisted and knotted cables coming out the back, lugging the heavy thing to your vehicle, driving miles in traffic to get to a computer repair shop, carry it in, wait in line, fill out a bunch of paperwork, wait days, if not weeks, to get a call that it is fixed, drive back to repair shop, get it back home, try to plug everything back in the same way it was originally, find out its not fixed, debate going back but decide to just throw it out the window and buy a new one.

Don't Fall For Fake Microsoft Tech Support Pop-Up Scam! Read This Now So You Know What To Expect and Don't Become Another Victim!

If you've ever been browsing the web/internet and gotten a pop-up on your computer screen that warns you that your computer is infected with a virus, that your internet has been hijacked, or some similar message and that you need to call Microsoft Technical Support at a phone number provided in the message, these are all fake warnings and the phone numbers in the messages are not to Microsoft!


If you call the phone number in the message, you will be talking to a fake tech support located overseas to someone usually with a foreign accent (usually an Indian or African accent) who will try to scare you into believing something is wrong with your computer and will want to remote connect to your computer. Don't let them! They will leave behind software used to record your keystrokes, steal bank info, and can even steal your identity!


If you think you've already been a victim and live in the Greater Cincinnati area, I can help you get your money back and clean your computer(s) of the software they left behind. Click here to go to our computer repair home page and give us a call.


Do not fall for any fake Microsoft Support Pop-Ups while browsing the web! Please watch these videos to learn more and to protect yourself in the future. You should also share this blog post on all of your social media networks and hopefully we can put a stop to these criminals by making all of our friends and family aware of this before it is too late! Even after many years of these same scams being used over and over again, unfortunate people, especially the elderly, are still falling victim to these scams today.




What is the Single Most Important Upgrade To Make Your Computer Run Faster?

 My name is Bob Kahles and I own Bob's Onsite Computer Repair in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have personally installed this upgrade for literally hundreds of my customers and witnessed their computer's performance and speed increase anywhere from two to five times what is was before this upgrade was made in the majority of cases. I bet you'd like to have your computer running two to five times faster than it does now! So what is the one piece of hardware you can have upgraded to get this kind of performance increase? Continue reading and I'll tell you.


 Most desktop and laptop computers owned or bought today already have enough memory in them for the average user. They also have a decent enough processor in them. The major limiting factor in today's computers is their hard drive. An average of 90%-95% of all my customer's computers have what I call old platter-style hard drives in them and this is what is limiting their system more than any other single piece of hardware in their entire computer! The platter-style hard drives mainly come in two speeds. There's the 5400rpm and the 7200rpm. (RPM stands for revolutions per minute) The 5400rpm hard drive is the slowest of the two. The 7200rpm hard drive is the fastest of the two and is the only hard drive I install in my customer's computers when they don't want to upgrade to the best of the best. If you have either of these in your desktop or laptop computer, you definitely want to keep reading! 


 This brings me to The Single Most Important Upgrade to Make Your Computer Run Faster! A Solid State Drive, or SSD for short, is the single most important upgrade you can make to your computer in most cases! The platter-style hard drives have a needle that reads data off a round plate, or platter, which spins around. As the platter spins around, the needle has to constantly move back and forth over and over in order to read the data you are trying to access. With a Solid State Drive, all data can randomly be accessed at the same speed. I'll get into the numbers shortly so you can see just how much faster a SSD is compared to the platter-style drives. Right now, there are two different types of SSD hard drives. There is the standard 2.5" SSD and there is the newest technology of SSD called a M.2 drive. The M.2 SSD are the king of the crop but are much more expensive and you need to either have a M.2 socket on your motherboard or you'd have to buy a M.2 adapter which usually plugs into a PCI Express slot on your motherboard. 


Finally, lets get into the numbers and see why and just how much faster an SSD is compared to the old platter-style drives. A 5400rpm hard drive supports read and write speeds of about 100/MBs(Megabytes per second). A 7200rpm hard drive supports read and write speeds of about 120/MBs. An average 2.5" Solid State Drive supports read speeds of 450/MBs and write speeds of 300/MBs, two to three times faster than a 7200rpm hard drive! A Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD supports read speeds of up to 2,500/MBs and write speeds of up to 1,500/MBs!


If we break this down to lamen terms, the average SSD will outperform the old platter-style hard drives by about 3 times on average or we can say that an SSD is about three times faster than 5200rpm and 7200rpm hard drives. The Samsung 950 Pro M.2 SSD is about 20 times faster than the 5200rpm and 7200rpm platter drives and is about 4 times faster than an average 2.5" SSD! Hopefully, now you can see why I say that the single most important upgrade you can make to your computer is to upgrade to at least a 2.5" Solid State Drive. 


If you aren't comfortable working on your own computer, I can personally come to you if you live in the Greater Cincinnati area and install a Solid State Drive in your desktop or laptop. Simply click here to go to our home page and give me a call to schedule an appointment. If you want your computer to run faster and perform better, you won't be disappointed once you upgrade to a Samsung SSD!
