We have just completed a repair of a 15" Apple MacBook Retina screen. Due to the way the screen is made, the entire screen, with aluminium lid, needs to be replaced. This obviously makes it more expensive than a typical Windows laptop. But everything about the MacBook Retina is special, especially the screen.
Before the customer came to us they had spoken with Apple in Glasgow about the price of getting the screen fixed.
Apple are not the cheapest
Apple quoted the customer £525 to replace the screen. Plus it would take 2 – 3 days.
Our price was £369 for exactly the same screen. Fitted by technicians who are Certified by Apple. So, everything is the same, but we're £156 cheaper.
