That MacBook causing you issues?

When you’re trying to write the next report and find that pinwheel spinning endlessly on your desktop…it’s a frustrating thing. Do you have nightmares about the multicolored pinwheel that just spins in your face? Stop pulling your hair out – those issues don’t just fix themselves.

frustration

Call us if you’re having Mac problems. We understand that there are a lot of benefits of working on Macs over Windows laptops, but they are not bullet proof. Yes it’s true there is no real “virus threat” and Macs are significantly ahead of the Microsoft based software system that you’re used to in terms of viruses. But the Mac software is susceptible to bad hardware and “clogged” software and when it chokes, it goes down hard.

Mission Repair can fix the issue, and we offer free diagnosis. Why? Because if you want to know what’s wrong with your computer, we’ll tell ya. And if you want your computer repaired, you’re going to know that we’ll take care of you.

Remember “Mission Repair” for your computer repair needs – with a free diagnosis and no obligation for repairs – you’re in a win-win situation. And you’ll never have to stare at this again:

Unless you like that sort of thing 😉

Take, care, Ryan

Santa is coming. Should I be embarrassed?

So my wife emailed me this afternoon- and I’m not sure what to think about it.

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 4.12.15 PM

These are my dogs. The one on the floor, our male “Shadow” and the female in Santa’s lap “Layla” are our babies, there’s no question. But I’m feeling something is a little off seeing my dogs sitting there with the red-suited-white-bearded stranger.

I mean, Shadow is a protection dog and will not hesitate to attack a stranger when needed. I guess I wasn’t there for this session, so he didn’t feel the need to “protect” me, but seeing him next to Santa somehow diminishes his masculinity to me. I mean, this dog is amazing, well trained and prideful. In this picture he seems a bit defeated. Truthfully I’m not sure what I’m actually feeling right now 😉

Furthermore, Layla is a “scaredy-dog” and I can’t even imagine what it took to get her to sit in this Santa’s lap. I don’t know. Half of me wants to delete this pic so I never have to see it again. The other half says “what’s the harm”, it’s the holiday season and it’s cute. I guess.

So here’s to the amazing amount of funny, laughable, cute and amazing pictures we’re going to witness this holiday season. I think this pic deserves a special discount dedicated just for it on our Mission Repair website. Here it is: use coupon code “funnysanta” when checking out online and receive 13% off of any repair we offer between for the 2013 holiday season. Coupon code expires on Christmas, 12/25/13 so act fast!

Have a funny Santa pic of your own? Email it to “sales@missionrepair.com” and we’ll take off an additional 5% off of your repair just for participating. Maybe I’ll even write a blog about your pic…we’ll see!

Take care, talk to you again soon, Ryan

Fusion Drive Upgrades on Mac Laptops? Only at Mission Repair.

Hello everyone, it’s an exciting day here at Mission Repair, and we’re happy to bring you our brand new service for Mac Laptops that are in need of an amazing upgrade!

fu·sion

/ˈfyo͞oZHən/
Noun
The process or result of joining two or more thing together to form a single entity.

So what is a Mission Repair Fusion Drive Upgrade?

Our all new Fusion Drive Upgrade is the right way to upgrade your Mac Laptop. Fusion Drive is a breakthrough concept that combines the high storage capacity of a traditional hard drive with the high performance of flash storage. With Fusion Drive in your Mac Laptop, disk-intensive tasks — from booting up to launching apps to importing photos — are faster and more efficient. That’s because frequently used items are kept at the ready on speedy flash storage, while infrequently accessed items go to the hard drive. The file transfers take place in the background, so you won’t even notice. As the system learns how you work, Fusion Drive makes your Mac experience even better.

Q: I like the idea of an SSD in my computer. What model Solid State Drive do you install?

A: We love it too! We only use tried and tested components. In particular, we will install a 120GB Other World Computing Mercury Electra 6G SSD drive into your Fusion Drive Upgrade!

Q: What will happen to my data?

A: The short answer is nothing! The long answer is that we will make a clone of your data as it sits onto a temporary drive. We will then install the SSD drive with a custom drive mounting bracket, remove your optical drive (which you can have us install into an external enclosure if you’d like) and connect it to your existing hard disk drive. Our technicians will work their magic by creating the Fusion Drive and then reinstall your data and software. You’ll get your laptop back working as it did when it arrived. Just a lot faster and both drives work seamlessly together.

Q: What if I want to upgrade my hard drive at the same time?

A: Of course, this may be a perfect time to have your mass storage drive upgraded but it’s not necessary Just choose from the available options when checking out, and we’ll always send your original drive back to you. It’s yours, right?!?

Q:  Will it work in my machine?

A:  There are a few limitations.  Basically, we can upgrade any 13″ MacBook Unibody or 13″, 15″, 17″ MacBook Pro (not with Retina display) that is running OS 10.8 or higher.  We will remove your optical drive to make room for the new solid state drive but if you have any questions, please give us a call at 866-638-8402 before ordering!

So another first from Mission Repair, just as you’d expect. Again, give us a call if you have any questions, but we’re performing upgrades as we speak and customers are in love with their new found performance.

Take care, Ryan

Price Drop: Ram Of All Shapes And Size!

Good Morning M:R Nation –

We have some price drops to talk about today. We don’t see this to often with RAM, but alas, here it is. A mega price drop that is sure to please. We have slashed each service by about $50.00!

What is “RAM” exactly? Well, it is an acronym that stands for Random-access memory which is a form of computer data storage. A random-access device allows stored data to be accessed in very nearly the same amount of time for any storage location, so data can be accessed quickly in any random order.

If you find your computer running a little sluggish, a good place to start is the RAM. The more applications you use at once, the more your ram is pressed. Our Apple Certified Repair Technicians will always use the correct spec in your device and split up the ram between all available slots to create a smooth running machine.

Below you can view the different Apple specified RAM services that we offer. We can go above 8GB if you computer is compatible, so if you feel you need more than 8GB, give us a call at 866-638-8402 and we can help you find out your maximum RAM capacity.

We also have the ability to replace RAM an any PC as well. Please be on the look for those services to be added, but in the mean time, give us a call if thats something you need.

Eight Gigabyte (8gb) Unibody MacBook Memory (8500) Memory Service

Four Gigabyte (4gb) Unibody MacBook, MacBook Pro & Mini (8500) Memory Service

Four Gigabyte (4gb) MacBook & MacBook Pro (5300) Memory Service

Two Gigabyte (2gb) MacBook, MacBook Pro & Mini (5300) Memory Service

I hope all is well and the Holiday hangover is not too bad. We only have one more Holiday to get through and we are clear for another year:-)

Cheers, Troy

Faster Service On 11″ And 13″ Macbook Air Screen Repairs!

Hello M:R Nation –

Things at Mission:Repair are always moving at a fast pace. From our Customer Service to our Shipping and Receiving departments, things just fly. This is by design. The quicker we can receive, test, repair and quality check your device, the better for everyone. So you can imagine my elation when we shave some time off of a particular process. We have done so with our Macbook Air Screen services! What used to take a full week to repair, has now been shaved to only 72 Hours!

Macbook_Air

Why would it take 72 hours (let alone 1 Week) to repair you ask? Well, the design on the newer Macbook Air is very thin and complex. So thin in fact, there is not even a removable LCD screen in it! It is built in layer by layer in the top lid. This brings a whole new complexity to the repair and most folks could not do it in their basement. To repair these computers, requires a clean room and other expensive equipment that you can’t easily come by. It is a pain staking repair and I would not wish it on my worst enemy 🙂

So, with a little ingenuity and a lot of practice, we have quickened our turn around time on this service. My technicians are working hard to to get this time down even further and you should expect to see another post on this very soon! So please allow me to give you a short cut to these new and improved services:

Glossy 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

Matte 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

 Glossy 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hour Turnaround)

 Matte 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (72 Hours Turnaround)

Until we meet again!

Cheers, Troy

What is Labor Day at Mission Repair? Coupon inside!

Hello there everyone and happy Friday!

We are closing up a record month here at Mission Repair. We had another new employee start today on our production line. . .not only a record month in sales, but a record month in new employees starting. I always told myself that once I can’t remember everyone’s name, I know that we’ve made it big.

Well Adam started today so my “name memory” is still working fine 😉 I think that once we get to 50 employees I may start to become “forgetful”. I pride myself in knowing who’s-who and what’s-what in my business; but once I got over 30 employees I noticed myself losing grasp on a few things. It’s OK, that’s what my managers are for, right?!? I just have to learn to let go of certain tasks. It’s change that’s the hardest, but it’s also a ton of fun.

Speaking of employees, everyone is getting a well-deserved day off on Monday for Labor Day. You may ask: “What is Labor Day?”

Well there is an official definition that is something about a workers strike back in the 1800’s and it quickly became a National holiday soon thereafter. Others say that they recognize it merely as the beginning of the school year…or the official end of the summer. Of course it’s is typically the last day that the city pools are open for the year.

At Mission Repair, we celebrate it just like many other retailers and online businesses do – we have a sale!

So what can you expect from this amazing Labor Day weekend at Mission Repair? Firstly we will be open for business as usual Saturday and Sunday. Come on over to our service center and we will be happy to take care of you! We will be closed on Monday 9/3/12 so be sure to make note of that!!

Additionally, we are offering a whopping 20% every order placed this weekend online. That’s right. 20% off. That even includes 20% off of the shipping on your repair order. I dare you to try to find a better price on any of Mission Repair’s services. You won’t find it!

So if you’re in need of an iPad repair, iPod glass repair, iPhone fix or other Android Cell phone service. Click on over to the Mission Repair website and use coupon code “dayoff” for your 20% discount.

This offer runs Saturday (9/1/12), Sunday (9/2/12) and Monday (9/3/12) ONLY. Offer not good on orders placed any other dates and not good in conjunction with any other offer or discount. It’s simply amazing.

I’m back to the grind stone – that’s probably some sort of saying from the 1800’s as well. To me it means “Back to work Ryan”. I’ll talk to you again soon.

See ya, Ryan
