With ever increasing actions by “Big Tech” in general to collect more and more data about us, and the rise in Governments monitoring what we are doing as well as our ISP’s, I’ve been meaning to write something like this for some time now.
But it was the recent actions by FaceBook to take down News Pages and Links…

I was very happy with Iain's service and the new computer he supplied me is great. I was quite concerned about Windows 7 finishing but Iain made the transition so easy I should have done it earlier!My new machine is terrific and I highly recommend him. His service is personalised and he takes the time to listen to you.

It was time for a new computer and I came across Iain's business after a google search. I have since purchased my new computer from Iain and have been nothing short of impressed with his business ethic, professionalism, expertise and realistic prices. My new computer is simply fantastic and Iain didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need (he even provided me with free advice over the phone). We run a small business and have now chosen to have Iain attend to any future computer repairs or sales.

Very helpful advice, and my problem was sorted out on the spot (pun intended) :-)It was the classic recovery of data on a hard drive when the computer won't start up.Thank you for helping me out of a sticky situation.

I've been dealing with Spotty Dog Computer Services for as long as I can remember. Probably around 18 years. Iain has supplied us with several Laptops and Computers over the years, and has assisted us with any IT issues along the way. I would happily recommend him for any computer related problems.

I took my computer to a shop in Morayfield, I won't name them. I was told that I needed a new motherboard, and the cost to repair would be around $500. Something didn't feel right, so I thought I'd get a second opinion and called Spotty Dog. Iain asked me to bring the computer in, and said it was most likely something very simple. He looked at the PC while I waited, in front of me, and removed the RAM, cleaned the contacts, replaced it, and low and behold, my computer was fixed. I thanked him and asked how much, and he replied "don't worry about it, I didn't really do anything". So not only did I save $500, I received immediate service at no charge. How great is that? I have continued to use Spotty Dog ever since. A+++

I needed a new PC for my family business, and I was just going to buy off the shelf at one of the big retail stores. But after talking with Spotty Dog, I decided to go with a custom built PC. As Iain explained, we had the benefit of choosing what components were used and their quality. I have been very pleased with the resulting speed and performance, not to mention the reliability. I am so glad I didn't just buy what the retailers were trying to clear off the shelf.

Ian has been our computer Technician for at least 15years. He is knowledgeable and efficient at his work. We email him and get a response within 24hours. In the last 15 years we have purchased and had Ian build a number of computers for us. We have always found him to be prompt and friendly.

Iain has been my go to man for some years now. He has built two computers for me and sorted out problems with two others. I have always found him to be so helpful and so willing to do more than I ask of him. I thoroughly recommend Spotty Dog Computer Services.

We have used Iain (Spotty Dog Computers) for probably over 15 years. He has built & supplied us with many computers for both our business and personal use over that period. He has dealt with all our maintenance and repairs issues immediately, meaning his service is excellent. We consider his charges are very reasonable and will continue to use Spotty Dog Computers into the future.

Thanks to Iain from Spotty Dog Computer Services for his prompt service and excellent advice. When the home computer finally bit the dust, Iain gave me a fast assessment on the benefits of repairing versus replacement, and his direct advice and knowledge was refreshing. Iain had me up and running again with a new PC fully installed and operating in less than 24 hours. Highly recommended computer service provider.

We've been using Iain at Spotty Dog computers since moving to the Northside of Brisbane 4 nearly 5 years ago. He's thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced with a quick turn-a-round. We have sent a few people his way now, even people from the Southside who do the trip because he is just that good. You aren't going to find one of the shopping centre setups, here this week gone the next, Iain is a small business operator, home based been around for many years built on reputation.

We have used Iain – Spotty Dog Computer Services for over 8 years now from custom building & installing computers to suit our business needs; to repairs and the design of our website along with ongoing maintenance of our website; advice on email management and data backup options. When we have had an install of a new computer or software, the transition is smooth and the downtime is very minimal. Iain is very experienced in diagnosing a computer issue and issues are resolved quickly. Most importantly, he is honest, upfront and reliable and he provides a great service at a very reasonable cost both onsite and at his business.

I had an issue with my Outlook giving me an error message saying there was a problem connecting to the Gmail IMAP Server. I called Microsoft to see if they could fix it but they said they had no idea what was causing it. So I called Spotty Dog Computers and talked to Iain. He got me to take it to his office and leave it while he checked it out. To my surprise, later the same day I got a phone call telling me my Laptop was ready to pick up. You've gotta be happy with that kind of Service!!
