Bill D. – Middletown: “John from Precision PC Repair was incredible. I had an older Mac Mini which I was just about to junk because the hard drive no longer booted up. Coincidentally I had just swapped out the RAM sticks for 16GB of RAM, which did not work.
Despite having numerous ongoing jobs already, John was very agreeable to arrange a meeting and diagnose my Mac Mini. He recommended replacing the hard drive so I purchased a new, 1TB hard drive but was skeptical as to how all my files would transfer over. He had “cloning” software which would replicate data from my old hard drive onto the new one.
The process turned out to be quite challenging with passwords and such but, undaunted, John persisted and got the new hard drive installed, up and running with all files and settings intact! He relentlessly pursued the issue until it was resolved. His perseverance really paid off. I was then able to upgrade the RAM so I now have a refurbished Mac Mini which actually runs faster and quieter than when I first bought it.
John was extremely friendly, courteous and professional….and most of all, very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone with a laptop or desktop issue.”
Michael Osean, Videographer and Photographer Newport, R.I.: “Just as every boxer has a good cut man in his corner during a fight, those of us who rely on maximum performance from our computers needs John in their corner. Last week my work station computer went through a Windows 10 update installation in the evening and I woke up to a completely crashed computer with a damaged operating system. As a videographer with a busy shooting/editing schedule, time is always of the essence. I frantically searched for someone local who could quickly troubleshoot and resolve the issue and found John.
Windows 10 update crashes have been known to wipe out all data but John was able to preserve all of my personal data that he initially thought was lost. He diagnosed a slow/no boot malfunction, troubleshot the operating functionality and was able to retrieve the Windows key. After consulting with me, he formatted and reinstalled the operating system while updating and configuring the fresh installation.
In a quick turn around, John delivered to me a fresh operating system and guided me through potential follow-up problems. He also educated me on a more productive backup procedure and security measures to follow.
When faced with my problem, I quickly shopped around for the right person. John is an expert in his field and as the name of his company implies, he is all about precision repair. In addition, for his great service he charges a very fair price. I would have paid much more had I opted to bring my computer to big box stores or elsewhere.
If you are dealing with any kind of hardware/software issues, do not hesitate to contact John. You won’t regret it!! I know I will keep him in my corner.”
Nathan S – Middletown: “I have turned to John at Precision PC Repair for many years to handle all of my computer service, maintenance, repair and upgrade needs. The man is a genius when it comes to all things computer related (accessories included)! He knows them inside and out, literally.
I’ve never met someone who can take apart a 15-year-old external hard drive that wasn’t even functional when given to me in 2006, solder the broken elements back together, convert 20,000 .wma files to .mp3 format and import them into my iTunes library! Now that is what we call highly technical and precise work.
John is very humble and only markets himself as a PC repairman. However, he is highly capable with Macs. He got my 2009 Mac mini (which was stored in the back of my closet for eight years after having broke down) up and running in a matter of hours and also doubled the memory of my hard drive for an insanely cheap price! Throw in a 27″ HD Cinema Display Monitor from Best Buy for $129, a 50 W Logitech speaker set with 8″ subwoofer for $49, and I’m streaming iTunes with some serious bass and syncing iCloud from all my devices all thanks to John in bringing this tiny broken box back from the dead plus making it compatible with modern day technology, software updates, and iCloud! He did the same thing with my beat up, broken down 2011 MacBook Pro.
The list goes on and on. John is just so incredibly skilled and gifted at his craft that it always blows me away with what he is able to do. His prices are unparalleled, so I can’t help but pay him more for his services just as a gesture of goodwill. And to top it off, he is a great guy! Extremely personable and down to earth, friendly and easy to work with, very accommodating with scheduling, and lightning fast turnaround times. You simply cannot go wrong with Precision PC Repair!”
Nadine H – Newport: “John Abong was a treasure for me to find, right here in Newport. He is very professional, knowledgeable, impressively meticulous and reliable. His prices were reasonable and he was charming to deal with. I don’t know what I would have done without him, and it was a great stroke of luck that a friend of mine enthusiastically recommended him to me. I couldn’t have been happier. Thanks, John!”
Naomi I – Newport: “I have been using Precision PC Repair for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. John has brought my blank, black screens back to life, on multiple laptops and towers, many times- with all files and information intact. He goes above and beyond to retrieve lost info, my latest debacle being my android which just shut down one day with none of the pictures backed up. Because of his extensive knowledge, John was able to revive it and retrieve all my photos which he gave me on a memory stick. Convenient, affordable and reliable.”

Autumn S – Raytheon: “After I built my first gaming PC, I ran into issues I couldn’t troubleshoot alone. Calling John for help was the best decision I could have made.
He picked the tower up at my home, dismantled and diagnosed several problems I hadn’t even considered, kept me apprised throughout the process with texts and photos, and delivered it to my door when it was finished, all within a couple of days!
John explained all the repairs very clearly and understandably, and as a final bonus, he troubleshot a video display problem when it wouldn’t work at my house, making sure that everything was perfect before he left. He even installed and optimized my operating system as an included service!
I couldn’t be happier to have found such fast, reliable, and quality computer service. Whether it’s my first computer or my fiftieth, I’ll always take it to John!”

It is fast, no pop ups, and most importantly- no issues! We were so used to our desktop being a headache, we had forgotten how much fun it should be to “explore the web”!
