Most of these myths have resulted in a lot of users deciding not to repair their MacBook and end up buying a new one. So we will be discussing some of these myths that have been around since the introduction of MacBook laptops, and we will discuss whether these myths are valid or not. These myths are listed below:
- Takes too long to repair
- Only Apple can repair the device or have to be Apple certified
- It will cost a lot
- My MacBook will not work the same way that it used to work
Now, we will be discussing all of these myths in detail and will conclude that whether you should believe them or not.
- Takes too long to Repair:
One of the most common myths that come to mind when you want to get your MacBook repaired is that the repair will take a lot of time. Many users believe that it’s very complicated to repair a MacBook and it will take weeks or even months to get it repaired. When the user hears about this myth, they decide to not repair their MacBook, and that results in them buying a new model. If you ask us, that’s not a wise move. While it may take Apple much more time to repair your MacBook, other laptop repair shops have the services of qualified personnel who can get your MacBook repaired in no time.
We can give an example of our team at Ask Computers when it comes to the time we take to repair a MacBook. We have qualified professionals who are well experienced when it comes to repairing MacBook laptops. We also have all the latest equipment and tools which helps in repairing a MacBook more effectively and in less time. So with the help of these tools and experienced professionals, we can repair a MacBook in usually 2-3 days. It mainly depends on the extent of damage that is done on the MacBook. We can also repair it in one day if the damage is not that extensive.
Apart from us, there are also many laptop repair stores who have the repair turn-around time of less than a week. One of the reasons that Apple takes a lot of weeks or even a month to get a MacBook repaired is because they have a lot of workload and they might have their repair store located in another city or state. So they have to first ship the laptop to their repair store and then wait for it to come back. This is not the case when you decide to get your MacBook repaired from other laptop repair stores. Since most of the MacBook repair shops have the repair technician available most of the time, and they have all the repair tools and parts available on hand, they take very less time to repair your MacBook.
We hope that after reading these facts, you will conclude that you should not believe in the myth that the time required to repair a MacBook is going to be too long. We would also recommend you to get your MacBook repaired instead of buying a new one because first of all, it will cost a lot to buy a new one and if you have to use your MacBook in your daily routine, you just have to wait a couple of days to get it repaired. It sure sounds a better option, right?
- Only Apple can repair the device:
Another very common myth that has been around for a long time among the MacBook users is that when your MacBook is damaged, only Apple can repair it and no one else. Also, many people believe that the repair only has to be Apple certified. Otherwise, they won’t be able to use their MacBook. Well, as far as this myth is concerned, we can safely say that it’s not true by any means. We have a team which is known to repair MacBook devices for more than 15 years, and we have enjoyed great success at repairing MacBook laptops effectively and have gained the trust of hundreds of customers. Apart from us, there are so many other stores that do MacBook repair in Toronto and all over the country. So if you believe that Apple is your only option when it comes to repairing your MacBook, then you are wrong.
Many of the users have also heard a myth that only Apple can repair their MacBook devices effectively, and other repair stores are not qualified enough when it comes to a more complicated repair of a MacBook laptop. With the latest technological equipment and staff that we have on board, we can safely say that this myth is also wrong. It doesn’t matter how hard or complicated the repair is, our team is capable of tackling it in the best way possible. We also believe that there are also many laptop repair stores in the country that can handle all types of MacBook repairs. So the conclusion is Apple is not your only option. If you want to spend more money and wait for a longer period to get your laptop repaired, then sure, you can choose to get your MacBook repaired from an Apple repair store. If you want to get it done in quick time and for a low cost, you should opt to choose other MacBook repair stores.
- It will cost a lot:
In our opinion, that myth that changes the mind of a MacBook user when it comes to its repair is that they think it will cost a lot of money. Many users base their decision on whether or not they should get their MacBook repaired on a though that it will cause a big hit on their budget. A basic reason for them in believing that is because the MacBook prices are too high as compared to other laptops available in the market. So the users think that it will put a huge burden on their wallet when they have to get it repaired.
Usually, the cost of the repair depends on the amount of damage done to it, but it’s a common perception that it will cost more than $1,000 for a normal MacBook repair. If you are one of those people who believe that it will cost more than $1,000 for a MacBook repair, then we want to give you the good news that it’s definitely not the case. Again, we would like to mention the example of our repair store first when it comes to the cost of repairing a MacBook. Based on the nature of the problem, we are charging in the range of $50 -$500. So no matter how complicated the repair is, you will not have to pay up to $1,000 for its repair.
These are the charges for our store, and there are other repair stores throughout the country who are charging way less than $1,000 even for a challenging MacBook repair. So if you are thinking that your MacBook repair is going to cost you a lot, and you should not go for it just for that reason, then we are glad to tell you that it’s not the case.
- After repair, my MacBook will not work the same way:
Many MacBook users believe that after getting their device repaired, it will not function properly, or to the level that it used to work before the repair. This myth has led to a lot of people spending more money to buy a new laptop instead of repairing their old one. As we have served hundreds of customers in the last decade and a half, none of our customers have complained about a drop in the performance level of their MacBook after getting it repaired. With the advanced equipment and the experienced MacBook repair specialists, we can assure you that your laptop will work the same way as it used to work before you decided to get it repaired.
If you end up causing a lot of damage to any of your laptop’s component, the repair stores are replacing them with great quality ones to ensure that you will have the same level of performance that you use to have when you initially bought your laptop. Another myth associated with this scenario is that only Apple can repair your MacBook to the extent that it will not show any decline in performance. At the same time, if you get it repaired from any other store except Apple, your laptop will not be able to perform to its full potential.
Again, we can assure that this myth is not true. Sure, Apple is known to be providing great customer service when it comes to the repair of their products, it doesn’t mean that other stores are not good enough for it. Many MacBook repair specialists are not working for Apple, and many customers have availed themselves of their services. So if you are still a believer that only Apple can repair your MacBook, then we would advise you to consider the option of other repair stores which can prove to be cost and time effective for you.
So these were some of the myths that are associated with MacBook repairs. Many people have based their decision when it comes to repairing their MacBook based on these myths. So hopefully after reading this article, you will have a different point of view regarding these myths related to MacBook repairs.
