Colin and Wesley Baker, two brothers and best friends, sitting in a bar somewhere in rural Ireland, discussed their mutual love of technology and fixing things. Raised in retail in what is now voted as Ireland's top retailer, Decwells Expert DIY in South Great George's street, it was their dream to run their own technology store. A place where they could share their love of technology with others, helping people to enjoy and understand it as they did. As the conversation flowed through a chat about their favourite film, Back to the Future, the happy-cheesy eighties classic, an idea was born. To bite the bullet and open a small store on Dublin's Aungier street, only doors down from Decwells, called Back from the Future.
Today, 16 years on and just over 48,000 laptop repairs later, Back from the Future is still much the same. There's no story here about humble beginnings and star-reaching success- just a business that has stuck to its founding values of excellent service to the customer, expert, efficient quality of service and keen, honest pricing on laptops, computer products and repairs and worked hard to forge an industry leading tech support business. The boys favourite part of the job is on the floor, helping and serving customers and sorting out problems!! They now have repair labs in Dun Laoghaire, Donnybrook and Bray. Colin appears regularly on Tv3's Ireland AM to guide the viewer through the often complex world of technology. Laptoplab is the most advanced repair facility in the country, with techniques and equipment unavailable elsewhere. There is essentially NOTHING they can't fix. Try them out!!!
