Computer Repair Doctor in Raleigh, NC

We fix all MacBook, Air, Pro & iMac problems!

Free Estimates On All Mac Repairs

Macs are notorious for being dependable machines, and lauded because they "just work" - which is often said about iPhones as well. Part of that is true because Apple's computers aren't manufactured by a ton of different companies or custom-built by consumers - Macs are made by Apple and have a lot more consistency between each other.

However, if they were perfect and worked perfectly forever, you wouldn't be here though! Whether you've spilled coffee or water onto your Macbook or your iMac seems to be slowing down - we can help you out! We offer free estimates on all repairs (as all legitimate repair shops should) so bring your Mac to our store in Raleigh and let us take a look at your computer, and ensure you get a few more years out of it!

When Should You Take Your Mac to Us Instead of the Apple Store

  • If you are experiencing an issue with a cause unknown to you and you need a free diagnostic
  • When you have a problem related to software not created by Apple - the AppleCare store will typically be of no help when it comes to these issues.
  • If you need data recovery - we can easily help you out.
  • When your issue is hardware related. The benefit of working with us is that we do local repairs so you don’t have to ship your apple computers cross country. You can get your Mac repair in Raleigh. We also give you price estimates along with free diagnostics.
  • Most of the time we are less expensive than the Apple Store, so if you’re looking for value take your machine to us.
  • We will never pressure you for repair services or to buy a new machine. We’ll give you our opinion if you ask us, but you’re in the position to decide. So, if you are seeking no-pressure expert advice, see us!
  • If your Mac has suffered a liquid spill - Apple won’t work on machines with this damage but we will.
  • If you’re a fan of convenience - simply schedule a drop off, call the store or drop by in person without scheduling ahead. Seeing us is a lot easier than heading to the mall, booking an appointment then waiting in the Apple Store for your turn to be called.

There are many stores that perform Mac repair in Raleigh, but we hope you consider us for your go-to repair shop. As Mac repair specialists, we highly recommend you drop by for a diagnostic. We’d love to offer our opinion, figure out what your issue is and provide a free, no-obligation estimate for you today.

Frequently Asked Questions

If we can’t fix it, you don’t pay. It’s that simple!

This is a question that we get a lot, no matter the brand of the computer.  Age, wear & tear, frequency of use, and the cost to repair are all important, in addition to what model of Mac you have so it’s hard to give a clear answer! Our techs can talk to you about it, and if they price to repair your Macbook or iMac is greater than the cost of a replacement or it’s close, we will give our honest opinion and let you know.

We’ll take care of you, pure and simple. If any of our technicians break something during the repair, we’ll take complete responsibility and fix the problem or buy you a replacement device.

We stock all types of parts, which is easier for Macbooks and iMacs since there are fewer models to account for.  That aside, if we don’t have the part necessary to complete your repair, they typically arrive in 24-48 hours so you shouldn’t need to wait long!

Absolutely. We offer 90 day warranties on all of our standard repairs (if we have to buy custom parts, those parts may have a different warranty period). If anything goes wrong after 90 days, it’s unlikely to be due to our repair but you’re welcome to bring it by anyway. We’re usually able to help, especially if it was related to the repair we performed.

It’s ALWAYS a good idea to backup your data before a repair (and we suggest you do). Even Apple advises backing up your data before any repair. However, it’s extremely unlikely you’ll lose any data during the repair.

Nope! Stop by anytime we’re open!

We are not – but don’t back out now!  That’s a good thing.  If we were “Apple certified” we would be forced to charge you much higher prices – and maybe give slower turnaround.  As it is now we buy the same screens as them, just directly from the sources so we can offer better prices!

"Super fast and super nice! Great place in Raleigh to go to for a quick repair! "
