SOHO MacBook Repair – Is the Apple Store the only place to go to?

Well, that was a loaded question. Nope!

Look, Admittedly, the Apple store geniuses have gotten more down to earth and not as G-d-like as they once were. However, the pricing and red tape are heavier than ever.

Let’s look at a common scenario of how the Apple store fared against a local NYC SOHO Apple repair center, New York Computer Help, that has one of its centers a half a block away from the Apple SOHO store.

Customer’s MacBook issue: Sadly, my MacBook Pro took a beer on it last night. Now, it won’t start up. I only purchased it a few months ago so it should be under AppleCare still.

Apple SOHO store response: Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that dude. Our policy states that any liquid exposure is not covered by your Apple 1-Year Limited Warranty. But, great news, here’s a new MacBook that only costs $2,500!

Customer’s reply: But, what about my family photos? And my work files?

Apple SOHO store response: Well, you can buy a new MacBook. Yours is 3 years old which is not able to handle the latest apps. And I’m sure your iCloud backup is up to date, right?

Customer’s reply: OMG, I’m gonna lose everything. I can’t believe it! I’ll need to find a place that will actually recover my files and hopefully knows how to repair a computer.
