high quality apple parts

Your Apple Mac deserves high-quality spare parts. We’ll replace broken parts with genuine Apple spare parts whenever it’s available.

With Apple Mac computers, it’s known that Apple will consider old Mac as “vintage” models (4 to 5+ year-old Mac) and discontinue spare parts for those.

In this situation, we will source high-quality third-party spare parts from our trusted suppliers only. Over the years, we’ve tried a number of different suppliers in the market hence we know which one is better.

Most spare parts come with a 1-year standard warranty against defects. For example, hard drives, RAMs, batteries, screens, etc. In the instance that the part has developed faults within the warranty period, we will replace it for free of charge.

  • “Vintage” Apple Mac? We’ll fix it too:

It is known that Apple stores do not fix “vintage” Mac computers (4 or 5+ year-old Mac). Let’s put it this way, they want you to spend more and buy a new one. The American company makes more money from selling new computers.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We fix Apple computers that are as old as 15 years.

Why?

Because we truly believe in Repairs over Replace. We ourselves are using 10 year old computers, making the best out of every computer that we have. We can make an old Apple computer run faster and handle most of the latest apps.

Your computer shouldn’t be a liability, it’s your asset. It should pay off for itself. It’s a tool for you to be more productive and accomplish more.

That’s exactly what’s been happening for years and now: developed countries are dumping toxic e-Waste to poor countries.

Thus, if the battery is faulty, your Mac laptop will still work normally with the power adaptor.
