Launching for users in North America only for now, the Eurocom service promises to update your laptop software, BIOS, anti-virus, operating system, and more for a small fee. A "deep cleaning" of the fans, hinges, and motherboard is also an option even for difficult-to-service laptops.

According to Intel, the average (non-gamer) consumer will purchase a new PC every 5 or 6 years. It's common for aging computers to feel slower over time due to a number of factors including an increase in installed applications, background activity, outdated security patches, or clogged up fans. Eurocom wants to address this by offering owners the option to send in laptops for a quick fix and tuning up.

Called the Eurocom Tune Up program, the reseller will accept any working laptop for cleaning, updating, scanning, and more depending on the service level requested. Eurocom will even reapply thermal paste for the CPU and GPU and oil the hinges if needed. The concept is analogous to a car tune-up where owners would bring in their vehicles to an auto shop for regular checkups.

The program should be especially useful for laptop owners who may not have the time or knowledge to efficiently update every piece of software, scan for potential malware, or clean the fans and heat sink. Interestingly enough, the program will likely appeal more to casual or mainstream PC users instead of the professionals or enthusiast gamers that Eurocom products tend to attract.

See the official landing page here and the multi-tier package options below. The service is still in its early stages and so more details like shipping costs and acceptable devices will likely come at a later date.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
