We refurbish!

We also sell affordable and reliable refurbished laptop, notebook, and desktop computers. We will never sell a computer that we would feel uncomfortable recommending to our own families. Every refurbished item is obtained from computer recyclers or reclaimers, then thoroughly cleaned, tested, and repaired when necessary. Each refurbished computer sports a clean install of its operating system, no bloatware, and features an assortment of free, useful utilities such as malware protection and secure web browsers with ad-blocking software.

We can come to you!

We can make house calls to do minor on-site computer repair, computer setup or relocation, or even pick up your computer if you are unable to bring it to us in person. We’re happy to provide IT and support services to small businesses throughout the Durham area.

We’re your local experts!

When you call, visit our office, or email us via our contact page, you’ll be talking to the very same people who will be working tirelessly to fix your computer! We pride ourselves on our team of motivated, savvy individuals who combine personal, friendly service with a sense of humor, and the utmost respect for you, your computer, and your personal data. We take the time to explain what’s ailing your computer with patience and in terms that you can understand. The Computer Cellar is American owned and operated by a small team of people that love Durham and its amazing community.
