    Is there anything else I need to know?

    • Our free laptop set-up service is only available on Windows laptops. This doesn’t include Chromebook, Apple Mac or Desktop PCs. It’s also worth noting that we can only install software that you’ve bought from us.
    • When you’re booking your appointment, you’ll need your order number, email address and a contact number for the day you’d like us to set up your laptop.
    • On the day we’re setting up for you, make sure your laptop is unpacked and ready to switch on. You’ll also need your order number, email address, Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password to hand. These should be written on the back of your router, but if you’re not sure where this information is, we’ll help you find it.
    • If you’ve got any questions about cancellation, rebooking or anything else on our free laptop set-up service, just give us a call on 0161 470 1200.
    • Terms and conditions apply.
