If you have ever had your iMac go bad then you know how big of a decision it is to repair or replace. You might be fine if you are just looking to replace the hard drive, add more memory, or replace the battery. But what if it has a blown up power supply, logic board, and worst case scenario a fire?
I recently had a client bring me their iMac with a blown power supply. They were considering buying a new one since they thought it was done for. I pulled it up to diagnose it and saw the photos of how much damage there was. I looked up and said “It is fixable but it will cost around $350 to $450.”
I have seen too many clients throw away their devices that can easily be fixed because we work on them and they don’t understand what we find. Some of the time these are great machines that are easily repaired for a decent price. Below is an example of my iMac repair.
