With the newest generation of the MacBook Air shipping today Apple is again setting themselves up for success. It seems that the runaway money train called Apple can not be stopped. Don’t just take my word for it, Apple just released its financial results for the first quarter of its 2011 fiscal year. Apple reports that it posted record profits for the quarter at $6 billion. This train is not stopping anytime soon. As a matter of fact, when I did a Google image search for “record profits”, the first image that shows up is a picture of Steve Jobs (see below).
With the masses continuing to adopt Apple products both locally and abroad, Apple’s market share in the laptop market is growing at what seems to be an exponential rate. This is what I like to see. I witnessed the market increase first hand while I was in college. It seemed like by the time I graduated, most students in my classes had some sort of Apple laptop. Some high schools around the US are even adopting 1 to 1 laptop programs for their students to use throughout the school year. And it seems like MacBooks are the notebook of choice. My prediction is that by 2015, most schools are going to adopt a program similar to this. And with the throngs of MacBooks out there, it is inevitable that we will continue to see an increase in the laptop repair market. It’s only natural.
The most common thing to break on any line of Apple’s MacBook is the beautiful, yet fragile screen. And sending them to Apple for repair is not cheap. Over the last decade, we have developed strong relationships with our vendors and suppliers to be able to acquire the necessary screens and parts at as low of a cost as possible so we can offset the high cost of repair that other company’s offer with our discounted repair prices. And this shows in our prices.
Here is an example, if you have a later generation MacBook that needs a screen replacement, you would be looking at over $700 to get the screen replaced through Apple. We offer the same MacBook Screen Replacement Service for $170. This is just one example. We do screen replacements for all models of the MacBook including Aluminum Unibody MacBook Pro’s and MacBook Air’s. How do we do it? You just read it! If we get parts at a discounted price, we offer you the service at a discounted price. It’s as simple as that.
Additionally, iResQ is an Apple Authorized Repair Facility. This means that we can do warranty repairs on Apple notebooks. This also means that if you send your MacBook to us for repair, you WILL have an Apple Authorized Macintosh Technician performing the repair. This should give you peace of mind when deciding how you want to get your broken or cracked MacBook screen replaced. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 888.447.3728. We are open Monday through Friday, 8AM-6PM and have a sales team ready to answer your call.
We hope that your Apple product doesn’t break, but if it does, there is a way to get it repaired without having to empty your bank account.
Until next time.
