Why MACnician?

  • 1. Expert service
  • 2. Fast turnaround time
  • 3. No appointment necessary
  • 4. No data recovery "attempt fee"

MACnician cares about you and your Mac! To put it simply, if we can't fix it, or it's just not worth fixing you don't pay. At MACnician, we believe in good honest service. If we think you'll get a better price elsewhere, we will send you in that direction. Although we can fix most things Apple, there are times when a repair on an aging machine just doesn't make sense.

We are happy to have you as our customer. Stop by the store anytime for a repair estimate or just to see our vintage Apple museum.

Thank you for choosing MACnician!
They do excellent work and are very knowledgeable! I highly recommend this shop!! Excellent customer service!

Brian helped me diagnose an issue with my 2012 Macbook Pro (my lower RAM port was loose). He was very thorough by going beyond the standard diagnostics test that Apple does in diagnosing the issue with my computer. He opened up the machine, and had it fixed in no time . In 10 minutes he had identified the problem and fixed my computer, when two visits to the Apple "Genius Bar" didn't identify any problems or fix it! I would highly recommend his services!

Brian is far more than a Macnician--he's a MacMAGICIAN! Add patient, and ready to help (even during the holiday break when my then college-age son had a computer emergency! and incredibly knowledgeable. Count me as your number one fan.

Brought in my daughters Macbook that was running slowly. Brian replaced the hard drive and it runs better than new! Saved us the cost of a new computer for school. Very quick and personable service.
