About Computer Hardware, Inc.


Our Birth

Computer Hardware opened its first location in Kearney, Nebraska in 1980 as an authorized Apple dealer.  As opportunities grew, so did our locations.  In 1988 we opened our Hastings store, in 1992 the Grand Island store, and in 1998 we expanded to Lincoln and Omaha.  With five locations, Computer Hardware serves south central Nebraska with our network of Service.  Feel free to CONTACT US with any questions or comments you may have.


The Hastings location started in 1988 located in a small office on the north side of town. As opportunities grew so did Computer Hardware. Our first retail location was at 3rd and Denver. Then in 1990 we moved to our current location at 1001 W 2nd St. At that point Computer Hardware specialized in sales and support of Apple, Acer, Epson, Compaq, Hewlett Packard, IBM and Packard Bell. With all the ups and downs in the computer world, Computer Hardware narrowed its focus to the Apple and Lenovo line of computers. Now 27 years later Computer Hardware has been maintaining the highest levels of Sales and Service in Hastings and throughout the surrounding communities.


The demand for great products and services were so high in the tri-cities, we had to open up a third store. Our Grand Island location opened up in the downtown area on 3rd Street in 1992. As our growth continued we moved to our current location in 2011 on Old Fair Road, just off of Highway 30 and 281. Today we strive to provide exceptional customer service and go beyond the value found at big box stores.


Eastern Nebraska was the next venture. Both Lincoln and Omaha were lacking Apple resellers, so in 1988 we opened a store in Lincoln at 70th and O Street, and a service center in Omaha. Big things started to happen as we grew in the Lincoln market! In 2012 we moved to a larger store across the parking lot which more than tripled the size of our old location. Today we are proud to say that we are the largest Apple reseller in the state!



This year we are celebrating our 35th Anniversary!  We have grown to 5 locations with 22 employees. We are proud to serve Central and Eastern Nebraska with cutting edge technology and we couldn’t do it without the great clients we serve. Than you for being a part of our legacy. Here’s to 35 more!
