It’s finally happening! After a few years of going strong, your MacBook is playing up in one way or another. When this happens, most struggle with deciding whether or not the device can be fixed with repairs or if it’s time to throw in the towel and purchase an entirely new laptop.
It is no great mystery that Macs are pricey to acquire. There is also a misconception that the price of a MacBook repair is virtually the same as buying a brand-new device. While this may be true in some cases, it is undoubtedly not true overall. Therefore, enquiring with your local repair specialist becomes essential.
The decision of how to move forward will depend on the amount of damage the MacBook has encountered. It is wise to consider these points when making your decision.
Slow Running Device
A slow-running device is generally affordable and straightforward to mend. The reasons for a slow Mac can range from a worn-out hard drive, heavy data and media files to unnecessary apps. A technician can optimize your MacBook by cleaning it up and getting it back up and running in no time!
Have you noticed an unwanted bug or virus popping up on your MacBook? Contrary to popular belief, Mac products are prone to malware attacks like any other computer brand! These minor attacks are not uncommon, and we deal with them all the time. They are cost-effective to rectify and are definitely not cause to opt for an entire MacBook replacement.
An OS Corruption
The operating system on your Mac may get corrupted due to improper shutdowns or instances where the device did not update properly. These kinds of issues are easy to fix and can make a significant difference to your experience when operating your Mac! They are also budget-friendly, allowing you to have your Mac back up and running efficiently.
A Broken Screen Or Keyboard
Entire replacement parts can be tricky and expensive regarding Apple products. For example, a Retina screen replacement can be extremely costly to acquire and replace, making a Mac replacement the more favourable option in most cases. The cost of fixing most screens and keyboards usually accumulates to around half of the cost of a new Mac, which may not be worth it for some. Consider selling your MacBook and investing half to buy a new one.
Your MacBook may be subject to all kinds of damage throughout its lifespan. However, some issues are less significant and can easily be mended through a simple MacBook repair. Consider enquiring with your local technician to reach the best possible decision for your needs.
