    Does anyone know of any outlets in the UK or Europe whereby I can order a spare part for my macbook if needed ?

    Without being told I need to take my machine into an apple service provide for them to fix !

    Surely there's somewhere that apple don't control the supply of their parts & who fixes them.

    Gladly appreciate any posotive responses.

    Thanks
    :eek:

    Depends what parts you are after.

    Hard Disks and RAM, just go to any PC component store...

    Logic Boards, Cases, LCD Panels, SuperDrives, then http://macbookspareparts.com/

    SOLVED - Apple spares wanted over the counter in the UK or Europe

    I didn't think this thread was still alive!

    As for the web links suggested in the replies, to buy replacement mac parts, I'm familiar with quite a lot of sites now through a lot of research.

    Have also found using these sites are overpriced, lack of stock when you need the part & more so unsure / un-confident technical advice about what part will fit an actual machine!

    But as the initial post I made was asking for outlets that sell Mac parts over the counter in the UK.

    I have since actually found a UK Mac service center that will sell mac parts to me or any other genuine mac owner over the counter for me/them to fit for themselves!

    I just have to provide my machine serial number.

    Why should Apple have the last say in what I do with my machine & why should they be the ones to fix it?

    They have too much control over their products when you or I own them.

    Thanks for replying, this topic for me is now concluded.

    All the best!
