The Melbourne PC User Group Inc.
Members Helping Members since 1984
We are a club whose members have an enthusiastic interest in all aspects of computing, with areas of interest from small microcomputer circuit boards through mobile devices to traditional desktops and laptops.
We have many groups, usually referred to as SIGs, whose members meet in suburbs all over Melbourne and in our clubrooms at Moorabbin. Lately, we have been meeting online.
Our members have a wide range of experience and knowledge – some members are just beginning their computing adventure and others have had many years of experience. We all learn from each other.
Members can obtain help with specific internet or device problems from our iHelp SIG via phone or email, and can participate in the club’s private online forum. The forum enables Members to share the latest tech news, help each other solve PC problems or simply chat about the affairs of the day.
