About this pro
Macs R We specializes in Apple equipment. We can and do handle Windows issues, such as malware removals, performance improvements, integrating a home network, or installing and managing Windows on Apple's Boot Camp or a virtualization product -- but we have specific Apple knowledge and credentials that you won't find in your average neighborhood computer service. Unlike a business computer, a home computer is purchased with the intent of enjoying it. Like a great sound system or a high-performance car, a computer shouldn't just be neutrally problem-free, it should be positively pleasurable to use. As an engineer who appreciates computers, I am by nature impelled to help you resolve issues that are making your computer an annoyance or frustration to you. I also find much personal satisfaction in showing folks how to make their old gear perform better for longer, postponing or eliminating the expense of new equipment.

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our housecall fee is $70 for the first hour or portion, with additional time prorated at $60/hour. Our shop (bench) rate is $40/hour for time directly spent on your unit (not time spent running unattended tests or software installations) with a $20 minimum. Telephone and remote service is $30/hour, with a $15 minimum monthly charge only in any month when these services are used (there is no repeating monthly charge). We are happy to provide service outside our normal service area for a trip charge that varies with distance. However, our telephone consultation and remote service offerings are available from anywhere in the US at no additional charge.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All our Apple-Certified technicians train to stay up to date on best-practices repairs for new Apple products, as well as common problem syndromes and new service programs for older products. Certification is granted only after an examination for skills and knowledge.
