    I am part of a small computer services and web design company, and though I am a proud Mac user, we don't usually have a whole lot of Mac service requests come our way. However, that seems to be increasing.

    Where is a good place to get Mac parts? I had someone call today with a 2000 iMac that has a bad cd-rom drive.

    I believe you need to be a certified apple repair center, and all the parts have to come from Apple.

    so just to work on an 8 year old mac, we'd have to get certification from apple?

    No, just to buy genuine Apple repair parts directly from Apple.

    ah, ok. i may have to check out getting certified. there isn't a certified mac technician within 50 miles of here, so it could be beneficial down the road.

    however, in the mean time, i found a couple sites:,, that all sell parts. are they reputable?

    I believe iFixit might supply parts, but I'm not really sure.
