You remember matrix paper / printers . . . you logo takes me back to those days . . . .

I don't know from the comment if that is good or bad. If you mean dated, what part.

I like this computer because depending on how you look at it represents a laptop or a PC Monitor with a keyboard in front of it. But the computer can be changed if you think it is dated.

I think the computer and the style of the logo itself is dated. I think you should get a designer to make you a logo . . .

/best advice ever

Get a designer ...

Do not make the logo you will be using anywhere from the next 2 months to the next 2 years look like it could be done in paint in 15 minutes.

I think you should get a professional to design your logo, your logo is your image. You need a vector that can be used for many different things such as leader heads, advertisements, even billboards and signage.

I agree with every one else. I thought I had a decent logo design, then I started a contest on 48hourlogos and was soo surprised how much better the designers on there made it look, and in the end I went with something completely different then what I started with. It was defiantly worth the $100 I paid for it and love my logo now. Its clean, has some color, and looks professional and is recognizable.

I would have to agree with everyone else, get a professional to work his magic for you. You will agree once you have done so.

However, if you don't/can't hire someone to design a logo for you, I would suggest creating the "logo" part with "JL" and have it be incorporated with the "Computer Solutions" in some way. Make the slogan a little smaller, and you need color. Black and white will never look good/work. Visit www.dafont.com and find a nice font you like, slap in some color and you might be set.
