This Macbook Pro was dropped and the screen was damaged with many visible lines in the screen. The customer was given many repair quotes around town but chose us for the repair due to our better pricing, history with Mac repair and great customer reviews.

This Macbook Pro came to us with a cracked screen. Due to the way Macbooks are constructed it’s necessary to change out the whole top of the laptop and not just the LCD screen. This customer received a few quotes around town that were significantly higher than the repair bill from us.
We were able to replace the screen for several hundred dollars cheaper than other computer shops in town and do it with a quick turnaround.
We saved the customer hundreds on the repair and a thousand or more over buying a new Macbook.
If you have a Macbook with a broken screen, bad keyboard or trackpad or isn’t running as fast as it should bring it us to get it back up and running like new again.
We service both Mac and PC hardware and software issues.
This iMac was brought to us with the usual issues from a Mac of this age. The user reported that it was running very slow and the fans were loud. They wanted to know if they should spend the money to replace it or was there something that could be done to bring it back to life.
The price of a new iMac could range from $1200 to well over $2000 for a top of the line machine. The truth is that most people don’t need the latest and greatest Mac to do the things they need to do on a computer.
We were able to replace the old and worn out spinning hard drive with a new super fast SSD drive. This new drive is 10x faster than the old drive and runs considerably cooler and quieter. We also took the opportunity to clean the fans and vents to ensure that everything was cooling properly.
We were able to clone the old drive over to the new SSD so the only difference the user saw was the tremendous speed increase. All their files and programs were exactly as they were before the upgrade.
The end result was an iMac that actually ran faster, quieter and cooler than it did when it was new out of the box. It was taking over 5 mins for it to boot up to the desktop before the upgrade. After the upgrade it was ready to go in under 30 seconds and applications responded almost immediately when clicked.
If you have an older Mac and are considering upgrading due to slow performance or space issues then please give us a call first to explore your options. We may be able to upgrade your hard drive or increase your RAM to give you the performance boost you need to make your Mac last.
We can save you thousands over the price of a new computer.
A recent customer reported that their Macbook, though only a few years old, was starting to run slow and had some programs installed that they could not remove. Although, historically, the Mac has been better at not getting virus infections, malware infestations and nuisance adware type programs, that has changed recently. OSX is completely capable of getting infected either by a virus, malware, proxy redirect or just about any other issue a PC user would face.
In this case, it was only a program called MacKeeper. MacKeeper was installed intentionally but because a nuisance with pop-ups and constant alerts slowing down the computer and interrupting normal use. The user was unable to uninstall it and remove it from the computer. We were able shut down the program and get all signs of it removed along with a couple of other unnecessary programs.
While working on the laptop we let the user know that only a small amount of RAM was installed and that was a major source of their slowdown. We upgraded their ram to 8GB from 2GB and the laptop was working better than ever and had plenty of RAM to ensure that several programs and browser tabs running at the same time wouldn’t slow it down, any more.
If your Mac is being slowed down by unwanted programs that start up when you boot or you would just like it to be cleaned up give us a call. While we do the clean-up and optimization we can check the hardware to see if anything can be upgraded or needs to be replaced to make it run, even better.
