The moment you opened up your MacBook Pro at home for the first time was probably one of the happiest. With its sleek form and design, a MacBook is a real pleasure to own and work on. A MacBook is easy to maintain but, like all electronic devices, it isn’t immune to wear and tear. You may put a screen guard on it but the screen may still develop internal issues or crack after a hard fall. The sound quality may suddenly drop of one of the keys on the keypad may stop working. It’s frustrating when something like this happens. A quick Google search will throw up online tutorials on how to open up your MacBook Pro and may give you the confidence that you can fix that one tiny little issue on your own. But, when it comes to MacBook Pro repairs, this is the worst thing you could do. What you should do instead is take your MacBook to an Apple service center or a third-party service center that has been authorized by Apple to repair its devices. Sure, it may seem a little more expensive but here are a few reasons why this is the smarter choice.
When you buy a MacBook Pro, your device is under warranty for one-year. You also get complimentary technical support for 90 days after purchase. You could also choose to extend your warranty coverage for up to 3 years by participating in the AppleCare Protection Plan. The extended warranty may not make all repairs and replacements free but it does lower the costs considerably. However, if you open the system up yourself or have anyone other than an authorized technician open the MacBook, you would nullify this warranty. This means that even if the MacBook is within the warranty period, if you open it yourself, you will not get the benefits of the warranty program when you do eventually send it for repairs.
Often a part may need to be replaced. For example, if your screen is cracked, there is no way to fix it but to replace the screen. When you send your MacBook Pro to an authorized service center, you can rest assured that the part being used to replace the old one is a genuine Apple product. This ensures that the new part fits perfectly and that it will work well with the rest of the system.
A MacBook Pro is a delicate device. Misplacing even a single tiny screw can damage the system and cause even more problem than you started out with. This is a risk if you decide to try and fix the system yourself or get a local guy to do it for you. The result- repairing your device may cost more than it would have initially. The good news is that when you visit an authorized service center for MacBook Pro repairs, you have the guarantee that your device will be handled by someone who knows the ins and outs of the device and has been trained to handle it.
Most of our work is dependent on the MacBook working properly. So, when even the tiniest aspect does not work, you cannot work with the device. This means that your productivity suffers and your frustration levels soar. If you tried fixing an issue on your own, there is no guarantee how long it would take. If you caused a bigger problem, you would have to eventually send you’re MacBook away for repairs. The longer your laptop is away for repairs, the longer you can’t work. On the other hand, when you send your MacBook to an authorized service center for repairs, you should not have to leave your device for too long. Since the service center has experience technicians, the issue with your device will be identified quickly. The will also be able to fix the issue much faster than local technicians.
Today, there are a number of authorized service centers for MacBook Pro repairs in all major metro cities across the country. A quick Google search should tell you which one is closest to you. However, before you set out to consult one of them, ask your friends and family for recommendations and look online to check out reviews.
