Our company offers just about anything related to computers. Windows crashing? Call us for repairs. Can't figure out how to attach files to an e-mail to your children? We'll come out and teach you until you understand how to use it. Finally decided that to upgrade that old Pentium II computer? We'll catch you up and build you a computer around your needs, within your budget and still give you room to upgrade in the future. The large corporations don't offer such individualized services, but at Coughlin Computers, we believe that a computer is meant to be a tool specifically designed for its user.


Our unique customer service sets us apart from others. Here at Coughlin Computers, we only sell computers that meet the specific needs of the customer. We don't have a standard line or a standard model; instead we pick and choose from a variety of models to meet your unique needs. Unlike our competitors, we design all of our computers to allow for future upgrades as technology changes. Our expertise provides you with the flexibility to adapt your computer as needed through the use of standard parts. Fully upgradable computers are our specialty, which saves our customers money in the long run.


Even in our budget computer, we use separate graphics and sound cards than those intergrated into the motherboard. Other companies use integrated graphics, which slows down the computer by requiring the processor to do more work than it should. We use the Soundblaster X-Fi sound card because, like the videocard, it improves overall performance and it also makes anything sound outstanding. The motherboards we use feature 2 PCI-e 16x slots and SLI support so that it can be used for more graphic heavy applications. In the end, our computers give you more bang for your buck and will last for years to come.


As your computer needs progress and require more hardware you may decide to upgrade to a more advanced computer. Our most expensive computer is only $3000! The leader in high-end computers, Alienware, charges as much as $5899! That being said, Coughlin Computers has come up with a $2500 high-end configuration which rivals the performance power of the Alienware.


Instead of the buying that high-end computer from Alienware, you could get the same performance and still have it ready to upgrade in the future for only half the price!
