Xtra-PC Review: Revive Old Computers In Your Church


Xtra-PC has me excited about anything that has come along in technology, specifically a product that can really benefit the church and those that want to minister to others.

I am thrilled to give you an Xtra-PC review because it is ALL about ministry and providing new technology tools to those in need! If you are a ministry or a mission organization, pay special attention to this announcement. Xtra-PC can really open important doors for you as you look for ways to help others.

You can now donate computers safely!

There are millions of old computers that are no longer of service. In the past, many people have wanted to donate older technology computers to churches and ministries so that their ministries could provide computers to those in need. However, I have always warned against doing this — since no matter how well you think you might have wiped your hard drive, someone could potentially get your old data off of that hard drive including your personal ID and information. It is for this reason that I have always warned that donating a computer was a security risk.


Restore Old Computers

Xtra-PC has developed a way for people to restore old computers to run like new even if there is NO hard drive. This makes it possible for people to donate old computers and know that their data is secure.

If you have an old computer that has become painfully slow, the OS is out of date, and you’re sure it is sick with a variety of viruses and malware, use Xtra-PC. It will bypass all of the problems and make your computer useful again. OR, if you wish to donate an old computer you can simply pull your hard drive(s) out of your computer before you donate, since Xtra-PC enables an inexpensive USB device to provide a new OS to run the computer without the need for a hard drive!

xtra-pc thumb drive Xtra-PC is built upon the proven OS, Linux. It bypasses your old, slow, bloated Windows OS to restore your computer’s speed and performance! Xtra-PC has the look and feel of your former Windows PC and comes with many programs and utilities that enable you to do most of the same things you did on your older Windows-based computer!

Here’s how it works.

Purchase the Xtra-PC, starting price for around $25. Take any old computer, laptop, desktop or netbook, with or without a hard drive, and make sure the computer is off. Your computer DOES need a USB port, but most computers built by 2004 will have this. Insert your Xtra-PC USB stick into the USB port. Turn on your computer. When the startup screen, the first screen, appears, you simply hit the boot menu key.

For most computers, this will be F12, F11, F10, F9, F1 or ESC. Then simply select to boot in the USB. Each time you restart the computer, you will need to hit this boot key. You will notice that Xtra-PC boots quickly. The screen and operation will be easy to use! You can install many of the same programs, with the same icons you are used to seeing on your computer now.

Facebook, Kindle, Pandora, etc. You now have a clean computer that is free of viruses and malware! So, what can you do with your computer running under the Xtra-PC OS? About anything you would want to do! Windows-specific programs won’t work, but there are [alternative] programs to do about anything and everything that Windows has to offer. For example, instead of Microsoft Office, you can use Open Office, or if you wish to connect to the Internet, you can use Google Docs.

You can run your wireless keyboard and/or mouse and you can install Skype. If this is your old computer and you have kept the hard drive in, you can access your music and pictures on your hard drive. It supports your webcam and multiple monitors. Xtra-PC does not turn your computer into a webbook. It comes with a lot of great programs you can run right from the USB stick.

What else can you do?

xtra-pc-graphic-learnmoreAnything you probably did before.

  • Surf the web, play games, watch videos, shop, post to social media, etc. What about storage? If you have removed your hard drives, how much storage does Xtra-PC have? The Turbo model comes with 16GB of extra storage for an additional $10, and the Xtra-PC Pro comes with 64 GB of data for a price of just $49.99!

Want to watch a DVD? Most new computers don’t come with a DVD player, but almost all of those old computers had one. With Xtra-PC, you can now watch movies on your computer again. Not a movie buff? No problem, you can load the Kindle viewer and read your favorite book.

If you’re reading this and you’re skeptical, Xtra-PC comes with a 30-day risk-free money back guarantee.

Additional advantages

Imagine if you personalized the set up in Xtra-PC, and stored your own files, games, pictures, music, etc., on the Turbo version. Simply pull the USB and drop it in a pocket. Where ever you go, a computer with a USB port is most likely available. Put your USB stick in, boot the computer, and select the computer to boot to your USB stick.

Your favorite bookmarks are already set in your browser, or your favorite music is just a click away, EVEN though you might be across the nation or world using someone else’s computer!

Imagine the missional and missionary opportunities! Your church could encourage the donation of old computers and make them useful again for just $25. If your church is in a low-income area, you could offer free computers to many, many people. Have the browser set to open to your church’s homepage, or provide other important information about Christ, your church, or ministry opportunities on every computer donated and turned on in your community.

Xtra PC graphicIf you travel overseas, there are many old, outdated and slow computers stored on shelves. The Windows OS has become corrupted or outdated. Now, within your pocket you can carry dozens, hundreds or even thousands of Xtra-PC USB sticks to bring new life to these old computers!

Extra advantage!!

I really like something else Xtra-PC has done. If you are an organization and are going to begin helping others with donated computers, Xtra-PC will provide you with a customized opening screen.

Imagine flooding your community or mission field with free computers that greet them with an opening screen with your branding and message! That alone would be worth the cost of the product! Want more information?
