We’ll check how full your hard drive is and how much memory is installed, what operating system you’re running and your warranty expiry date. We’ll also ask you how your Mac is performing.
The Apple Service Diagnostics are a suite of the most stringent hardware tests available for the Mac. These diagnostic tools are provided directly by Apple and only to Apple Authorized Service Providers like Simply Computing.
The Storage Diagnostics and SMART tests check the internal error-reporting mechanism of the hard drive itself, and can catch problems with your drive before they happen.
Every file on a Mac knows which users and programs are allowed to access it. These permissions sometimes get skewed, which can cause subtle glitches or reduce system performance. We check for permissions issues and fix them if we find them.
Some extra RAM or upgrading your Mac’s storage to an SSD might just be the ticket to a more responsive Mac. We’ll let you know what hardware upgrades might help you get more out of your Mac.
Hard drives (even the new SSD Flash memory ones) fail every day – even in Macs. We want to make sure you always have an extra copy of your files (usually on an external hard drive) so you never have to go through the pain of data loss.
