NEBRASKA’S FIRST AND LARGEST PREMIER PARTNER
About Computer Hardware, Inc.
In 1980 Darrel Albers and Tom Myers had a vision to start a computer store in Kearney Nebraska and Computer Hardware Inc. was born. Being in the business for over 38 years we like to call ourselves survivors. We have seen many computer stores come and go and have adjusted to a lot of change in the industry. That has made us who we are today as Nebraska’s oldest and largest chain of computer stores.
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 30 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 1998 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 July of 2012 we moved to a larger store front 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 of Nebraska!
This year we are celebrating our 38th Anniversary! We have grown to 4 locations with 26 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.

Being in business for over 38 years and selling thousands of computers gives us an edge on the competition with true experience that is second to none. We have an incredible company culture and treat each client like family.
We’re great people and we offer great service. We’re Apple authorized; we sell official Apple products and all of our technicians are Apple Certified. We honor AppleCare, and also repair out-of-warranty machines.
You can count on us to do what’s best for our clients, maintain a personal touch, have a positive attitude and take the initiative to do what’s right for you.

Another bonus is that you can drive right up to our front door.
Most of our new business comes from referrals. We work hard to maintain the great reputation that we’re known for, and we’ll never let you down.
