The next virtual meeting of the Computer Booters club will be on Wednesday, April 7, beginning at 10 a.m. Rob Truman will present a program entitled “How to Buy Your Next Computer.”
Rob has over 40 years of experience in information technology and Internet-related fields. He is a retired U.S. Navy Chief Electronics Technician and has worked as a technical support professional for Microsoft over the years. Rob holds a Master of Arts degree in Adult Education and a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology (BS IT). He is a staunch proponent of lifelong learning and runs a website/blog called Geezer Tek (www.geezertekaz.com) which focuses on helping the senior community with their technology needs. Rob also volunteers and teaches adult education technology classes through his local community college and their lifelong learning program New Adventures in Learning.
So, it’s time to choose your next laptop or desktop computer—your trusty companion for the next few years, the hardware that will keep you connected and handle everything from email writing to Netflix binging. But how do you narrow down the wealth of options out there? Join us and take a dive into all the different options available, but more importantly, learn how to buy what you need and not spend money on what you don’t as we discuss some tips and tricks to buying your next computer.
We will continue to have virtual Computer Booters meetings on Zoom on the first Wednesday of the month until we can meet face-to-face again. Our club has many things to offer members, such as free technical assistance, information about new programs, how to use the programs, Microsoft classes, and access to talks and conferences on a variety of topics from APCUG (Association of Personal Computer User Groups). The APCUG classes are free and can be attended using your computer, tablet, or phone with the Zoom.us app. These classes are an exciting benefit for club members. More information and help are available in the newsletter and on our website: www.computerbooters.org. For more information, contact [email protected] or 480-895-2196.
