Mitek News 2017

Mitek Has Moved
Yep thats right! After being inside the Berea Ky city limits since we opened way back in 2001 we have relocated to our new shop located on our personal property at 7271 Battlefield Memorial Highway in Berea Ky. In all reality we are only a few miles outside of Berea Ky on Highway 421 South just a couple of miles north of Big Hill Ky. See our map in the main column to the right and just click More Options for exact directions to our new location.

Mitek Partners With Lenovo

Mitek Computers is now a partner with Lenovo Computers (originally IBM) and the only OEM systems we will be selling are NEW Lenovo desktops, servers, and workstations. We still offer our OWN Mitek Computers brand of custom designed and in house built systems. This partnership with Lenovo now gives our customers many more options when it comes to affordable higher end OEM systems at extremely good prices.
In addition we are now an AUTHORIZED and RECOGNIZED Microsoft Refurbisher an have numerous refurbished systems in stock at GREAT PRICES.

SCAM WATCHER

FINALLY, a TRUE genius and HERO has came up with a website that keeps tracks of the latest computer repair phone and email scams, and even has a forum where people can get together and then list new and growing scam threats. We were SO tired of seeing our customers ripped off by thieves that call and state they are calling Microsoft and tell customers "your computer is infected" or call from 1-800 numbers and then explain how they need a few hundred dollars to solve the problem. MANY people fall for this simply because they are not educated to sbams such as this.

MOST COMPUTER USERS are unaware of these scams and how they work but NOW you can become truly educated and informed and know that you will not become just another statistic for these guys to prey upon.So head on over to Scam Warners any time you get a questioanble call or email or text from a source you are unfamiliar with. Any quetions? Call US at (859) 985-0050

Mitek's Custom Systems - Refurbished Systems - OEM Systems

Mitek Computers has been working more and more toward the goal of becoming a TRUE larger Microsoft Refurbisher and as part of this endeavor we are leaning more and more toward providing our customers vey gently used refurbisked systems that not only can save our customers a ton of money, but are also so cared for as to appear to be brand new or almost new. In addition we are trying our best to keep prices between $249 and $399 for all of our refurbished systems other than those special higher end refurbs that some of our customers demand for Autocad or video editing etc. So far we have been doing that without too many problems at all.

Now don't get us wrong, we actually have access to extremely higher end refurbished systems, but the systems in the $249-$399 price range seem to be in the sweet spot for systems in our general geographic area. A large percentage of our refurbished systems are Dell off lease business notebooks series which are made quite a bit better and are more rugged than their normal consumer brands or the types of systems you order from Dells consumer website. These systems are all designed to work in a very busy and fast paced environment and these systems are built to take some abuse. We do have some hPs and Lenovos as well BUT Dell is our preferred business system when it comes to refurbished systems.

The thing is you can save a chunk of change by looking at our refurbished laptops and workstations. You can pick up an extremely nice refurb for less than 1/3 to 1/2 what these systems costs new just a little more than a year ago. Most of tehse systems would have retailed for more than 800$ when they were new. So save yourself some money, end up with a super nice Intel I series (i3-i5-i7) system with loads of ram and features that you would expect to find only on much higher end systems, BUT at a price that you will find hard to believe. Give us a call at (859) 985-0050 to see what we have in stock, We normally keep systems between 299 and 399 in stock all of teh time, BUT occasionallyu we will have systems we can sell for $249.00 or LESS, A simple phone call is all it takes to find out.

You have worked overtime out the wazoo, scrimped and saved every dime possible, and contrary to what everyone else in the world tells you about how great the consoles like Xbox, Wii and PlayStation are these days, you still just have that hankering for one bad ass, super high end, completely one off, custom gamer.

A gaming or multimedia system that is just as unique as you are. A system that is truly your own and cannot be copied or counterfeited by just any entity out there. Your friends call you crazy, but believe us when we say that computer gaming is NOTHING at all like CONSOLE gaming. LAN parties are just not the same using an Xbox… KWWM (Know What We Mean?) Computer gaming is almost a religion of its own, and there are just some games that cannot be duplicated on a console system, no matter how hard they try.

Developers know this. If console gaming was all that, then every game that was developed and sold would be for just consoles, BUT the truth of the matter is, PC games outsell console games. Why is that do you suppose? It is because it’s a BETTER experience, that’s why! Nothing can come close to the good time you have with a super-fast system, and a bang ‘em up, blow ‘em up, kick ‘em in the balls kind of system. The kind you are so proud of, you won’t even leave your home… in fact you may even lose your job simply playing games. It is VERY addictive. So you have been warned. Hey it happened to us no joke…anyway that’s another story for another time.

So what is GAMER/DESIGNER to do when you REALLY want that system, when you have the money, BUT you don’t even know where to start?

Well, you have come to the right place. Mitek Computers is undoubtedly the BEST custom gaming designer and builder in the area. We have spent literally thousands of hours and NUMEROUS YEARS testing, and creating, and figuring out exactly what brand name hardware, what CPU’s and memory work best together, no matter what all the gaming sites tell you. They say one thing, we know another.

Find one really honest game tester’s site that has absolutely no advertising and you can just about bet they will give you the real skinny on benchmarks, and how well a game plays, as opposed to the sites that constantly barrage you with ads for the same manufacturers hardware they are testing. How that is is even close to an honest review. Everyone knows you NEVER bite the hand that feeds you…right?

So just take all those reviews with a grain of salt. Sometimes what you see and read is not the true scoop at all. It’s just a way to stroke a manufacturer in order to get more advertising dollars and even more free test hardware. Sounds harsh we know, but it is true. If you have any common sense at all, it’s fairly obvious what is going on. It happens all of the time.

Now we know we could throw a lot of statistics and numbers at you, but we would just about bet you have already completed mountains of research, checked out all the prices on every normal place on the web, and by now you pretty much THINK you know what you want. Thing is, not everyone is handy with a screwdriver, a gaggle of hardware, and bundles of software, but that’s where we come in. We do not buy parts from Newegg or Tiger or some of the other multimillion dollar fulfillment centers. We actually get our OEM hardware from partnered suppliers that we have worked with for years.Nothing is refurbished or used. Every part is absolutely brand new and carries the full manufacturers OEM warranty. All OS'es we install are FULL OEM or RETAIL versions. We DO NOT take shortcuts or use cheaper unknown parts just to save money.

At Mitek Computers, you tell us what you are looking for, what you expect from your system, and your maximum budgets dollar amount. We will do our utmost to stay within that budget as long as it is realistic, and the quote we give you will be the exact amount you pay. No surprises at Mitek Computers. Any difference as much as a penny we call and verify with you first. That’s just how we do things.

Now we all know that systems such as Alienware can end up costing you up to $4000.00 or more. We can offer you a quite decent gaming tower for right around a grand. A REALLY good tower for around $1500.00, and IF you are willing to splurge a little we can build your dream system at $2500.00 or so. A system that will make you the envy of ALL your geek type friends and you will absolutely, positively, become the king of the next LAN party….GUARANTEED!

Look, we do NOT make a killing on any of our custom systems. In all reality we barely make a profit at all, by the time you figure in our labor costs and our testing. We want you to tell everyone you know just how great your Mitek system is, and we want these same people to come to Mitek Computers to buy their one off system. It’s really that simple. We want your business, and once we have your business, we really want to keep your business.

So whether you are an Intel guy or an AMD guy; whether you like ATI or nVidia graphics cards; whether you are a Linux Guru or a Windows Puppy; it doesn’t matter at all. Deep inside computer geeks are all the same. We LOVE computers. We LOVE COMPUTER gaming. We LOVE having the fastest most stable system on the block.

And that my friend, is exactly what we give you at Mitek Computers. So drop by our BRAND NEW SHOP located at 7271 Battlefield Memorial Highway in Berea KY or give us a call at 859.985.0050 or email us using our Contact Form.We will get back to you within 24 hours or less even on weekends. Again we WANT your business. We want you to tell your friends about us and the work we do. We want you to be thrilled with any system we design and build for you, but more than anything else we want you 100% totally satisfied knowing that every dime you spent with us has been spent well.
