WORKSHOP: Computer Building 101

This is a NEW class for TRC!  This will be hand's on, interactive.  We will be taking a computer tower and laptop apart and putting it back together again...all of us...so roll up your sleeves and be ready to have some fun!

Some things to think about ahead of time...if you have a computer that is having some problems, feel free to bring it in (if you can carry it...)!  Laptops are welcome also!

The training room will be set up a little differently as well, so if you don't have a computer that needs some work, don't bring it...this is hand's on interactive, and everyone will have the ability to push in RAM and run cables.

Keep in mind as well that you will need to be ON TIME for this type of event, and please check in with the security desk when you arrive.

The address to our facility is:

Terraces South (building next to Perimeter Mall)

115 Perimeter Center Place, Suite 850

Atlanta, GA 30346

We have a parking deck attached to the building. Please make sure you go to the main entrance. When you get off the elevators on the 8th floor, we are the only ones there. Go to the main entrance for entry to our class room. The easiest way into the facility is to turn left onto Perimeter Center Place from Ashford Dunwoody (coming from I-285). We are the second driveway past the McDonalds on the right.

    Thanks Zach! My son and I enjoyed the class and we both learned a lot. We originally budgeted $1,500 for his project, but hearing what you built yours for, we are rethinking our plans. Great class!

    My husband and I have built a few together, but hey, he's a hardware and networking technician. I have my specs planned for an additional computer - or two. I would like to be able to do more of the hands-on myself. So far in the past, the biggest problem has been running back and forth to Micro Center to swap out newly purchased parts that do not work. Apparently there is a high rate of defective parts in electronics.

      Yes, you are correct. There are a lot of DOA parts that have to be sent back. The nature of the shipping process. Microcenter and Frys are great, but I really do still trust Newegg.com. They have a great return policy, every part you will ever need and want, and they are typically cheaper...even with shipping...then Microcenter. Just stay away from the marketplace companies...really hit or miss.
