WILBRAHAM – The small shop at 2785 Boston Rd. in Wilbraham is filled with shelving racks on which customers’ devices sit. There isn’t much space to move around in the small rooms, but the areas are used efficiently. Anywhere that isn’t taken up by electronic equipment is occupied by posters and models of various sci-fi franchises, mostly Star Wars.

The quirky nature of the shop belies the expertise of Torres, his partner Jan Macon and the five technicians that work under Torres’s tutelage at POST Computer Systems. The word POST in the business’s name is an acronym that stands for “power-on, self-test,” a diagnostic testing sequence that is used in computer repair.
