Top Notch Computers was born in the late 1990’s to me, John Christian Argie. Our roots can be traced back to my junior high days, when my mother would drop me off at people’s houses around town to solve their computer problems for a nominal fee. I had always been a bit of a closet nerd. My father worked in IT, and always owned computers while I was growing up. He taught me the basics and I was off from there. Fascinated, addicted, and infatuated would be some good words to describe my childhood relationship with technology.
Still, I was a junior in college before I realized that this is what I was supposed to be doing for the rest of my life. I changed majors for the last time, got the business off the ground, and one thing lead to another. By the early 2000’s we were a licensed, registered full time business in Albemarle County. By the late 2000’s Top Notch Group, LLC was formed, presiding over our local service here and the two other small IT businesses we’ve started. With the help of our great clients everywhere, we have become one of Virginia’s premier tech support specialists and are happy to be part of the community.
We’re different. When the other guys find a nasty virus on your machine, they want to reformat your hard drive. We fix the problem so you can keep all your data. When the other guys see a laptop fail to turn on, the problem is automatically the motherboard. We diagnose the problem and fix it. The other guys charge flat fees for repairs, and ding you with hidden charges later when other problems pop up. We charge a low, hourly rate for all services with no hidden fees. No matter what service you are in need of, it is our goal to be your best solution.
