PC Mover finds partners

Make upgrades easier and more people will upgrade

Laplink, the maker of PC Mover - software which takes all your settings, documents and contacts from your old PC and puts them onto a new PC - has found some distribution partners.

The company is working with various US computer makers to have its software included on machines. Intel is also offering discounts on PC Mover for customers buying certain dual-processor machines through Ingram Micro. The offer ends 22 April.

Some 30 per cent of previous PC Mover customers would be more likely to upgrade their machines if the upgrade software was included.
