Mac Repair

With over 26 years in repairing and upgrading Macs we are able to help you with many common Mac issues. We have repaired and upgraded tens of thousands of machines under the MacUpgrades banner and can give you a clear idea of costs, practicalities and timescales. Whether this be at our offices in Sawston or on your premises (see the onsite page) get in touch today and see how we can help you. Please note that we now only operate via an appointment basis, so please get in touch before making a journey.


Unsure what's wrong with your machine? - You can book an appointment with us at a time and date of choosing and we will assess your machine while you wait, and give you a clear idea of what can and can't be done. Whilst some machines cannot be economically or practically repaired most can. Cost for an assessment is £40 which can take around 30 minutes to an hour. We can then quote you on a repair path and timescales where possible. Please get in touch to make an appointment.


If you've got an iMac which is slowing down or showing the spinning wheel a lot, we can change out the slow hard drive with an SSD (Solid State Drive) and improve the performance greatly, gleaning you more years between upgrading machines. We can also upgrade the RAM on the machine where possible (contact us for a quote) - Please note the new M series iMacs cannot be upgraded in any way.

Example Pricing

iMac 2012 - 2019 Replace Hard Drive with SSD:

  • 960GB SSD £170.
  • 480GB SSD £150.

Price includes installation, tape kit, SSD, and a clean operating system. We can arrange duplication of your old data across (cloning) for a small additional fee. Other sizes of SSD are available.

We can do this on our premises (call 01223 782 486 or email for an appointment), or on your premises (please contact us for a quote, mileage and additional charges may apply, which will be quoted on in advance).

MacBooks and Apple Laptops

Along with our logic board repair service we can repair or replace keyboards or top cases.

We can replace batteries on a whole range of machines from 2012 to 2020 (Intel only at present). Battery replacements are normally in the range of £75 - £150 depending on the exact machine and part cost. Please get in touch for an exact quotation.

We can also replace Trackpads and SSDs on models where they are replaceable.

DC-In boards and other ancillary PCBs are also replaceable.

Displays are a problem in the Mac industry, and pricing remains very fierce. Whilst some faults are fixable (such as the 2016-17 Flexgate issue) normally a replacement panel or display assembly is required. We can order these but costs are often high - contact us for a quote on your exact model.

Legacy Apple Laptops

If you've got an old but well loved machine you'd like to keep going we are very much able to help, having repaired these since they were brand new. These old machines are far more repairable than their newer companions, so if you'd like a quote let us know.

We still offer the MacBook Pro 2010 15" C9560 fix at £60, and we can still bypass MacBook Pro 2011 machines with bad GPUs for £80.

Mac minis

Some Mac minis are upgradeable and we can help with these. Here are some details:

  • Mac Mini 2018-2020 (INTEL) - Have upgradeable RAM but fixed storage.
  • Mac Mini 2014 - Have upgradable drives but not RAM.
  • Mac Mini 2010-2012 - Have upgradeable RAM And Drives.
If you'd like to upgrade the performance of your older machine, do please get in touch.
