Apple Repair: What You Need To Know

Do you have a MacBook? MacBook Pro? iMac or vintage Mac computer? Have you ever had a problem with your Mac and when you call around to see how much Apple computer repair shops charge to repair it, they give you an astronomical quote? Maybe you’ve set aside your Mac computer until you have the funds to repair it, or perhaps you may still be in search of an Apple computer repair shop that won’t charge you a small fortune. Well, we have good news for you! Anything that we do here at Restore Computer Repair costs a $99.00 flat fee for labor. Yes… this includes Mac computers!

Half of the cases that we see with Mac computers are software issues, which lucky for you, will only cost you $99.00 total. If the issue with your Mac computer is a hardware issue, meaning that you potentially would need a part in your Mac computer replaced, we would charge you our $99.00 flat fee plus the price of the part needed. Below, I will list a couple of common issues we tend to see with Mac computers.

  • Spills
  • Cracked screen
  • Hard drive issue
  • Not powering on
  • Not booting up
  • Running slow
  • Touchpad/trackpad not working properly
  • Data recovery
  • Keyboard issues

All of these issues are things we could fix for you. Are you wondering how much it will cost you for some of these repairs? Let me go over a couple of these issues below to give you an outlook on how much they may cost.

MacBook/MacBook Pro not powering on?

One of the reasons your Mac computer might not be powering on is that you possibly may have an issue with your motherboard. Here at Restore Computer Repair, we try to do everything we can to repair your Mac motherboard as opposed to replacing it. By doing this, we try to save you a potentially large amount of money on a new motherboard. If your Mac motherboard is not able to be repaired, we could replace it for you. Mac motherboards cost anywhere from $99.00 to $699.00 depending on the year and model of your Mac computer.

MacBook/MacBook Pro/iMac running slow?

If your Mac computer is running slow, you may need a new hard drive. Bring your Mac computer in today and we can upgrade your hard drive to a solid state hard drive. Upgrading your Mac with a solid state hard drive can really speed up your Mac and add new life. As a result, your Mac computer could run up to 10 times faster than it was when it was brand new! If you want to upgrade to a solid state hard drive, the prices range from $99 to $399, depending on the size of the drive.

Macbook/MacBook Pro screen issue?

Is your screen on your Mac computer dark or all black? Or maybe you’ve dropped your Mac and now have a cracked screen? Bring your computer in today and we can fix that for you. Additionally, prices of LCD screens for Mac computers generally range from $99 to $599, depending on your year and model. Give us a call today with your year and model and we can give you an exact price for your screen replacement.

If you have any questions, or maybe you are having an issue with your Mac computer that I haven’t gone over in this blog post, just give us a call at 443-725-5050 and we would be happy to help you. I hope the information I’ve given you on Apple repairs has been helpful! Be on the lookout for my next blog post.

 

Welcome to Restore Computer Repair’s Blog

Welcome to our new blog, created by the fine folks at Restore Computer Repair of Baltimore, for fellow computer users out there who know enough to be dangerous!  Which by the way is the most common phrase we hear our customers say: “I know very little about computers, you know, enough to be dangerous.”

We hear this phrase day in and day out, everyone out there these days is a DIY’er and when they encounter an error, or some strange phenomenon going on in their computer they turn to the almighty Google to solve it.  The problem with that is the “solutions” scattered abroad on the world wide web aren’t always applicable to your specific problem and could end up making things worse: que the customer coming in to our shop telling us “they know enough to be dangerous”.

So I’m going to make it my goal, as much as time allows, to congest the interwebs even more by adding my two cents, touching on the most common trending tech related issues, errors, scams, etc.  So please tune in, comment and spread the word so we can attempt to keep our fellow computer users from becoming “dangerous”.
