These folks are certified Microsoft and CISCO engineers, which are endorsements you can trust right off the bat. Why take chances when there’s a team with that kind of pedigree?

Well, there’s no mystery in that title, which we greatly admire. Calvin is a friendly dude who takes time to explain what’s going wrong and what he can do to fix it, because half your worry is not knowing a speck about what’s happening inside your machine. Calvin won’t empty your wallet either, which is refreshing when it comes to dealing with certain brands.

One of our biggest fears when our computers go haywire is a huge repair bill. Even if you’re quoted a cheap price, there’s always the danger that something else will pop up to inflate it. Here, the price they quote you is the price you pay and a warranty is included to help you sleep at night. So go ahead, move that glass of wine a little closer to your laptop.

This is among the best of Apple buy-and-repair places in all of Toronto. They’ve been refurbishing, repairing and reselling Macs since 1993. They deal exclusively in Apple products — but without Apple prices— and advertise the best deals in town, plus a 90-day warranty on used equipment. Even if you think your machine is beyond repair, give these guys a chance. They also buy and trade.
