"I have been a lifeguard in Los Angeles County for over 50 years now and there are two fundamentals that save lives on the beach: 1) RESCUE and 2) PREVENTION. When I met Sam, he became my "lifeguard"... not only did he rescue me from my iPhone, iPad, MacBook and iMac problems but he put me on the cloud, sync'd them all to each other and otherwise prevented me from drowning in the riptide of my devices. Now, Sam has set me on a clear course of prevention from needing to be rescued again... it is good to know, however, that if I ever do get in trouble, Sam will be there to save me!!!"

"Using Sam & Company is like having a relative or neighbor you grew up with come over to your house with some good coffee and cookies... without having to come to your house, as Sam remotes right in to your computer (very cool)... and then proceeds to help you get the absolute most out of your Macs. Not only has Sam & Company helped me fix all things Apple, they have helped me turn my entire home into a full functioning Apple network that rivals the IT guys at my workplace. The thing I like best about Sam & Company is that while they are helping you maximize what you have bought (but have no idea how to use), they also take the time to TEACH you what is going on, so that you get 1-on-1 training WHILE you are getting your current problems solved. That's a great 2-for-1. Simply one of the absolute best customer service experiences I have ever had."

"I have been a customer of Sam's for years now. In addition to happily buying my computers, monitors, and accessories from his company, I've relied on his expertise for repairs, sometimes done in person but often remotely. He's always correctly diagnosed and fixed the issue--even one rare and challenging problem that was new even to him. Our home computers store our financial records and business projects, all of which I trust Sam and team with wholeheartedly. I give him my highest recommendation."

"As much as we try to solve tech problems on our own – let's admit it – we can't do it all. And when an issue is simply beyond us, who do we call? Sam Purkin and his team at Sam & Company. From problem solving to maintenance to suggestions on which laptop or gadget is best for us, we can always count on Sam to have a solution. And a few laughs, because Sam is a great guy."

"Sam & Company has been our MAC supplier and vendor for over 12 years. Rich Feldman is a tech superstar: he sets up our MACs, updates them, networks them, and provides remote access so that in this pandemic we can access important files from home. He remotes in to solve problems and is very accommodating and professional. I highly recommend them for any MAC needs."
“In our family we have a total of 16 Apple devices (Macs/iPads/iPhones/Apple TV) and couldn’t imagine keeping them in proper working order without Sam’s help. Sam has saved me so many times and always makes sure we are safely backed up while keeping us current with all the latest technology and updates. Our Wi-Fi and Bluetooth working smoothly—in the house and in the car. Sam & Company can connect to us remotely and fix things in minutes. Sam simply rocks in every way! You can trust him with anything and everything. He is so much more than your typical computer guy. I couldn’t recommend Sam more highly!”
"Sam & Company saved my Company in 2018. It may sound dramatic, however, that is exactly what happened. My Outlook crashed due to not having enough operating capacity in the application to handle my over 100,000 emails from previous years. After a week of calling around in efforts to find a specialist who dealt specifically with Microsoft Outlook, I was referred to Neal Tubi from Sam & Company. He diagnosed the issue and presented me with 3 options and I chose what I believed was best for me and my company. Neal was an absolute godsend and saved me from future hours of aggravation and frustration. Since that incident, my team and I have used Sam & Company's services over 30 times in the past 4 years."
"Whenever I have computer problems I call Sam. In the past I have had other people work on my computer and it never seems to be right. That is not the case with Sam. He sets up the computer right the first time and always manages to deal with any updates and problems quickly and effectively. He is simply the best! It is not worth going to anyone else because in the end you will spend more time and money and not get the great results that Sam gives you. I don't waste my time with any other computer support services – I just call Sam and he takes care of business quickly and efficiently."
– Allegra Clegg
"Sam, I continue to be amazed by you. I have worked with computer consultants and other "experts" in the business, but no one has come close to what you know and can do."

"When your laptop crashes right before a pandemic and your iPhone is on its last legs, it’s hard to stay optimistic and not to have a bit of a breakdown, but when this happens and you’re lucky enough to work with Sam Purkin of Sam & Company, tragedy is skillfully and completely averted! Sam is, hands down, the most knowledgeable, accessible, and friendly tech person on the planet. He is a dream to work with, patient and kind and always thinking one step ahead to ensure that the client gets the right product, right tools and the right assistance that fits the situation. Sam walked me through every step of my new tech environment, and he consistently went above and beyond routine client service. He was as delighted as I was when we were able to recover, working remotely, all the old data from my dead-as-can-be laptop. He suggested excellent ways for me to optimize my technical options and walked me skillfully through every moment to get me up and running. When working from home becomes the only option, it can be overwhelming and even scary to deal with tech issues, but with Sam’s help, I felt like I had someone on my team who would never let me down. I am a client for life…and would recommend Sam to any and all who want and need a steady, smart, and top notch technical professional. He is absolutely the best!"

In this world of choices, your insight made all the difference in the world."
"Apple stores are littered with 'geniuses'. Trouble is, they're not geniuses, they're kids with a little training, and your whole life is in your computer. Would you have the local Chevy mechanic tweak your Ferrari? Sam Purkin is the original Mac Genius. With decades of experience and history, Sam knows everything Apple and Mac, iPhone and iPad, MacOS, iOS, iPadOS, apps and utilities inside and out. He lives and breathes Apple. Sam's beyond the best, and I'd be 'toast' without him."
– Neil Stubenhaus
