    What do you guys do when your ONLY Mac needs to be service?

    As the title says, what do you guys do when your only useable Mac has to be returned to Apple/Apple Authorised Reseller for repairs and battery replacement? Service time may take 2-3 weeks. If you have a Windows computer, do you use it in the meantime? Or use your iPad, or iPhone? Buy a new...

    Thoughts on Dead Thunderbolt Ports?

    Wonder if anyone else has experienced this. I have a 2018 MBP (2.6 I7 512gb 16gb ram). On Friday, all 4 thunderbolt ports refused to charge, recognize any peripherals. I called Apple and was referred to a Apple Specialist who could not run diagnostics for the same issue. When apple received the...

    13” MacBook Pro late-2013 screen replacement only gives 1600x1000?

    I just paid over $500 for a screen replacement (including metal backing) and it’s quite notably worse than it was... I used to get 2560x1600. I can’t find a lot of info about screen supply, should I be happy with what I got or did I get ripped off? MacBook Pro 11,1 / late-2013 retina

    Do not buy a Mac Pro unless you're willing to wait for a long time

    I don't usually criticise Apple products but there is one I would like to vent out my frustration on the the Mac Pro 2013. You do not have to agree with me, so just hear me out.

    Other How long is you battery replacement taking?

    I've seen a lot of people talking about waiting til the end of 2018 to get a new battery. I have a feeling November and December 2018 will be as big of a nightmare as it is right now. Many people want to wait til the last minute to get the most usage out of their phones. I think summer and fall...

    Is Apple Becoming Like Comcast?

    I've used Macs for well over twenty years and have always found its customer support to be good, sometimes superb. Of late, however, I fear that things may be changing for the worse. Hear's my basis for stating this: 1. Hardware reliability. The Macs we purchased twenty to about ten years ago...

    iMac repair: Sometimes it's tough to stay in love with Apple.

    Taking a minute to gripe here... * iMac overheating and spontaneously shutting down whenever doing GPU heavy activities, such as video playback, screen recording, or doing remote desktop screen shares with Apple * Spend two weeks back and forth on the phone, email, and remote desktop sessions...

    Apple Thunderbolt Display - Glass Replacement Cost

    Hi, I have an Apple Thunderbolt Display and unfortunately the lower corner of the glass cracked when I moved it. There is no damage to the actual display, it is simply a cosmetic thing on the lower bezel corner. I was wondering if anybody has had something similar happen and how much Apple...
