“APG Computing services recently sorted our IT requests and IT issues.
• Transferred 10 years worth of data / old photos and emails from our old I-Mac desk top to our new I-Mac desk top.
• Ara resolved some issues with my wife’s new I-Phone
• Sorted out the blue tooth connection to my wife’s car with her phone.
• Along with resolving a few glitches when you try and transfer 10 years worth of data from old to New.

During the whole process I found APG Computing to be very responsive, knowledgeable , courteous and efficient.
Ara has a “Can do” spirit and was always pleasant.

I will continue to use APG computing in the future as and when any computing issues arise.”

“ Ara came out to my home on the weekend and worked on diagnosing the issue with my old computer and why I could not scan with my new printer. It turns out that he knew a lot more than my prior computer analyst and he was able to detect a real problem with the set up. This necessitated my buying a new computer. Ara was fantastic in giving me direction on what suited my business needs, as well as practical recommendations.

I want to thank Ara for being so professional and available to come out on a weekend to set up the new system. I can highly recommend him to future customers, who may , like me, need more than just somebody who sets things up. He was very much involved in the search for the right computer set up, as well as explaining the process. I am very thankful to him and his kind approach.”

“I have known Ara for the past two years. I was desperately looking to find “help” for my computer problems. I am a senior with limited knowledge of the digital world. I saw the APG Computing advertisement in my local paper and I took a chance and called Ara. Fortune has it, I found someone, who is a highly trained professional in computer engineering. Ara is able to provide me with a personalized service, unlike other services where you are dealing with different personnel every time one needs help. Ara also helped me with setting up my NBN and mobile phone.

Ara’s personal attributes are truly exemplary. He is punctual, honest, understanding one’s needs, and above all he is so very patient when helping me. His service has always been to provide absolute satisfaction and not leave me in the lurch. This may be a cliché but “if you find someone who is really good, stay with them”. You will be more than rewarded for your loyalty.

I commend APG Computing, and Ara without any reservation. I was lucky to find such good service and I cannot thank him enough.”

” We were panicked on a Saturday afternoon after receiving a spam email saying the sender had our password (which they stated in the email) and we had to pay them money within 3 days or they would access all our accounts. A friend of ours recommended us to call Ara from AGP computing as they had used him on numerous occasions. We gave Ara remote access to our computer and within an hour he had removed the virus and set us up with an anti-virus program. Nothing was too much trouble. He explained everything as he was doing it over the phone and his fees were very reasonable. If you are looking for a honest, reliable and very knowledgeable computer person Ara is definitely your man.”
Thanks so much Ara

” Thank you Ara for the assistance you gave to an old  man who was lost without his computer. I can only recommend him to anyone with computer problems.”

” As a small business owner my computer was crippled when an email link exploded a cookie in my PC.
Knowing my parent has used Ara’s services for years I desperately phoned him late Friday night on the Australia Day Long weekend expecting to leave a message to be responded to on the Tuesday.
To my surprise Ara answered and as a business owner himself took my concerns seriously.

We arranged the following day, Saturday, and he was nothing short of amazing. Unlike other techies Ara explained each issues as he found them, talked through my option and ensured my computer was fully backed up before running any fixes.
Ara’s fees are extremely reasonable and he is worth his weight in gold.
I will most certainly use Ara in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a courteous, knowledgeable and responsive technician.”

” Many thanks Ara for getting our computer working in temporary accommodation while waiting to move into our new home. And, again, after a second move, our thanks for your skills and knowledge when faced with new home connection, a change from ADSL to NBN broadband, new email server plan and telephone connection. Everything is now working smoothly and efficiently.”


“I am very pleased to acknowledge your help when my 10 year old computer crashed (with terminal consequences) You gave me same day service on the weekend and diagnosed an expensive motherboard failure necessitating replacement with a completely new device; and gave expert advice on the choice of replacement.
Subsequently you saved my files and transferred them to the new computer and set up the new device to my requirements. No fuss, and professional service to get me back ‘on the air’ again promptly at a very reasonable cost. Thank you.”


“I have found Ara at all times to be very professional, courteous, reliable and always able
To solve my IT Problems! He is excellent in explaining systems in an understandable way and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

Ann McCarthy

“Ara has helped me with my computer/printer/iPhone an iPad problems on several occasions. I am very computer illiterate and Ara has been of huge assistance to me and I place every confidence in him. He is very knowledgeable and has always been able to answer my queries and solve my problems, even though sometimes I have difficulty trying to explain to him my problem!!!! He is extremely polite and patient and has always made himself available to come to my home as soon as he is able. I usually get “same day service” and the longest I have ever waited is the next day. And his fees are extremely reasonable. He is my “go to” computer technician and I do not hesitate to recommend him to everyone.
PS And my dog loves the treats he brings for her!!!”


“Thank you , Ara. Very kind to help me as I am
living on my own ( my children live in London and USA). You did not have to help me. You are obviously a very good person. You do not meet many kind people, so again much appreciated, as I am retired now and living on a pension. Kindest regards, Clodagh. ‘ What goes around comes around ‘.”


“Before we bought two new computers, Ara was already extremely helpful to us. He would come promptly, remain as long as the job took, and always charged most reasonable prices. He would often make suggestions as to further improvements, such as syncing our appliances and teaching us more efficient use of the printer.

Since we bought the new iMac ones in the last few months, he has been absolutely indispensable. Not only did he set them both up, showing us the simplest way of operating them, but he was always readily available to answer our many queries.

He is skilled, methodical, unfailingly patient and even has a sense of humor which has helped a lot in the difficult time since the arrival of NBN. Our new Samsung Smart TV has involved a steep learning curve for us, but Ara once again was an enormous help; even after several months, we still feel entirely comfortable about asking him questions, and he always replies very promptly.

We have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone.”

“APG Computing is very professional, responsive and efficient. I have used Ara’s service on three occasions, twice to troubleshoot technical problems and most recently to transfer all programs and files to a new computer then set up in line with my user preferences.
Ara advised an appropriate configuration for the new computer and, consistent with his prompt and high standard of service, I am now up and running again with minimal delay and inconvenience. I highly recommend APG Computing for quality service at
competitive rates, excellent customer support and the ability to communicate in a manner understandable to non-technical IT users. ”

“Thank you for bringing our households technology into the 21st Century. Helping us with everything from suggestions as to what laptops to purchase to transferring existing data from our old desktop over to them. Networking and configuring printers, installing new software and faster cable.
Ara is highly respectful, prompt and continues to help us with ‘Team view’.
I would not hesitate in recommending him to solving your computer problems.
Many thanks”


“Ara Gurjian is a real professional and very personable with it. I needed a new computer with automatic backup facility and he took details from me with well-crafted questions. He then purchased my new laptop, passing it onto me at cost- just charging for his research and shopping time. Ara then took my old computer away and transferred the data over to the new laptop. He then completed the job at my home and later followed up with remote access to my laptop to prove the auto backup had worked. I recommend Ara highly if you need a computer guru
Best Wishes”

“Dear Ara,
Thank you for your perseverance in solving the mystery of the missing iCloud sync link, that had eluded me for some time.
I also greatly appreciated your promptness and follow-ups, a rare commodity these days. In addition your rates are reasonable and fair. What else could you ask for from an IT man!
I have already recommended you to my accountant.
Kind regards”

“My computer broke down at a time when I could least afford it. I consider myself quite computer literate and my computer is a vital everyday tool for me.
Ara Gurjian was working continuously on it to get it back into working order. He was always very polite, kept me informed of what he was doing and how long it might take, gave me options and worked hard to solve my problem quickly and diligently. On top of it, he charged me a reasonable and honest rate. Ara has my full trust and I highly recommend him. He certainly is the one I will call whenever I have an issue with a computer associated problem. ”



“Hi Ara,

The computer is running really well and all is fine. I like that you have it set up almost the same as my old computer so it makes it easier for me to use.
Thank you so much for coming to fix it so soon and getting me back on track with my new computer so quickly.
I really appreciated your prompt service and coming at the time you said you would come.
It’s all working really well.”

“I first called APG when my computer got infected by a terrible Trojan attack!! eek. It was emailing everyone I had known in the last 10 years. Ara from APG was here in a flash and sorted it out. He also noticed my internet was slow and showed me how to get a much faster service at a lower price. Then he set up a great new computer for my husband with minimal changeover pain and installed a new router and software for us as well. It’s great to find someone local with a wide knowledge of software who is ready and willing to troubleshoot in your own home and offer great service at a reasonable price.”

“Good afternoon Ara,
I would like to say THANK YOU for the sterling job which you undertook on my behalf to get my computers going. The one in my office at Allambie Heights contained a huge amount of emails combined with heaps of saved files didn’t make your job any easier but not to be deterred you quickly and professionally had my computer back in action and made the logging on procedure so much easier and combined with a short tutorial on how to use a computer has made my computing skills go from very ordinary to master programmer and operator. My other computer, which I use at my farm was a big challenge , but again you applied your techniques and skills which enables me to carry out my duties away from my office. I am also impressed with the fact you are able to fix things on my computer from your home, now that is technology beyond belief, well done. With your concurrence , I will be recommending your services to my “Nerdy computer friends” when they require service on their computers.
Thank you, ”

“As a complete computer klutz, I had no idea what to do as a virus rendered my computer useless. Pay the shanks demanding my credit card details?? I don’t think so. A phone call to APG Computing and he was here within an hour!

Like an Angel of Mercy – Ara arrived. He not only reassured me he could fix the problem – he did within minutes.

Yesterday I had another more serious problem, a stubborn Virus that could have cost my Credit Card plenty.
24 hours later problem solved and at a very reasonable rate.

“Ara greatly assisted us in removing a virus from our laptop that was so stubborn that he had to completely rebuild the computer. It was a lot of work and he charged a fair fee. He also recommended a better virus protection since our previous virus protection was clearly not working and we have not had any virus problems since. Ara arranged a time to do the work that was very convenient for us and he followed up how the computer was performing after he had done the work. He has also promptly responded to other day to day requests for advice and support. I am happy to recommend APG Computing.”
