Computer repairers regularly work on laptops, which are subject to many risks of damage. Problems due to awkwardness during transport, damage caused by hazardous use… How much does a refurbishment of this device cost? How are the price differences explained? And finally, how to prevent damage?
Have your laptop repaired
There are many types of issues that can cause a laptop to malfunction. Whether it is a broken screen, a virus, a motherboard problem or even a keyboard that has suddenly become unusable, this damage leads machine owners to turn to experienced professionals. for upgrading their PC or Mac.
The prices charged by these IT companies change according to the interventions: for example, count between 30 and 60 euros on average for virus removal, around one hundred euros for data recovery, between 80 and 100 euros for replacement a motherboard, or about 60 euros for installing an operating system. Some companies offer hourly packages for the home intervention. In this case, allow between 40 and 80 euros per hour.
Intervene on a PC or Mac
The prices charged by professionals change first of all according to the degree of difficulty encountered. The more damaged a hard drive, the longer and more complicated the intervention will be, which is why the price will increase compared to a healthy hard drive.
For an hourly rate practiced during home repairs, it is obvious that a simple problem to solve will be less expensive than an enigmatic damage for which a thorough diagnosis will have to be established.
In addition, there are price differences between Apple PCs and Macs. The latter require a more expensive service, in particular because of the materials and parts used.
For example, we will spend around 80 euros for labor to replace the motherboard of a PC, and 100 euros for the same operation on a Mac provided it can be repaired, which is not the case with the latest models. The same is therefore true for other interventions.
Computer repairs: how to avoid problems?
