Earl's Laptop Shop offers wide range of services

Earl Arwood of Earl's Laptop Shop can set up computer systems, assist with purchases, design and host websites, or handle virtually any computer technology issue.

Earl Arwood describes himself as an IT professional. The owner of Earl's Laptop Shop in Kingsport has owned his own computer repair and service center for just over a year, but his experience as an IT specialist is much longer than that.


For over 25 years, he was the 'IT' person in the transportation industry and when the opportunity for early retirement presented itself, he chose to return to his native East Tennessee. He enjoyed his time in the sunshine state, but says "there is something about the mountains that keeps calling me back."


In addition to computer repairs, Earl can set up computer systems, assist with purchases, design and host websites, or handle virtually any computer technology issue.


Some people, Earl explains, think they can fix their own computers, or handle setup. "You can’t short-cut technology," Earl says. "You get what you pay for."


Arwood was the kind of kid who always tinkered with mechanical or electronic things.


"My mom would get mad at me because I always tore things apart to see how they worked," he says. "Cars, bikes, televisions, you name it."


He trained as an auto mechanic as early as high school and also has experience in the electrical field. But, as gifted as he was with mechanical or electrical devices, it was in computer technology that he really excelled.


"I was blessed by the Lord to learn early where my main gift was," he says. "Integrity, honesty and a relationship with God has brought me where I want to be."


Earl's Laptop Shop is open Monday through Friday at 2005 Venture Park in Kingsport. Highly experienced, he specializes in commercial IT accounts. For details, email earl@earlswebsolutions.com or call 423-343-4665.
