HK LIFE – Laptop Computer Repair in Hong Kong 4


Unbiased guide to computer repair: Most of Hong Kong’s computer centres (Mongkok, Wan Chai, Sham Shui Po) offer electronics repair. The most affordable we have found for computers is ‘Computer Hospital’ at the Golden Computer City in Sham Shui Po. Unlike some repair shops, they service computers on site (as opposed to shipping them to Shenzhen) – they are also decent bet for cheap 2nd hand laptops and tablets.

  • Woah, hang about… When did Golden Shopping Centre become Golden Computer City?

    • Sam Gowthaman

      “Golden Computer City” is just another part of the same building as Golden Computer Arcade/Golden Shopping Center, separated by a staircase. Most people just refer to the whole place as “Golden”.

      • Interesting, I don’t remember there being different names for the sections in my day. (Decades ago.) I’m aware of the three different retail floors, though…

        Thanks for the info!

    I used a company called Computer Troubleshooters in Central. Their techs speak good English and their work is professionally done. I think it is always unsafe to use techs who can’t communicate well. They can easily use ‘I don’t understand’ and get away with their mistakes.
