I got a call from The Maryland State police yesterday.

Install a "bait" account on your Mac

I got a call from The Maryland State police yesterday. They had caught some bad guys stealing things from unlocked cars in Rockville, MD.  They had recovered a collection of things, including a MacBook Pro with a MacMedics account on it. The police needed help figuring out what was stolen and what was not. They […]

The true cost of buying non-Apple power adapters from Amazon:

The true cost of buying non-Apple power adapters from Amazon: Our new customer had to make an appointment with Apple to visit us, drive from Annapolis to Severna Park, and buy a new power 96-watt Apple power adapter and USB-C charge cable. Plus, they had to take time away from work to do this, and […]

I highly recommend Mac Medics!

A row of classic Macs found at MacMedics in Severna Park, Maryland.

“If you need your iPhone or Mac products serviced, I highly recommend Mac Medics! Located in Severna Park, they’re Apple Certified & do just about everything! They got the sticky gunk out of my AirPod Pro’s charging port for ONLY $10. I was convinced I’d have to buy new, as the gunk had dried. They […]

One degree of separation from Carl Kasell of NPR!

MacMedics Locations in Severna Park & Lanham

An unusual coincidence happened while I demoed a MacBook Pro 16” for a new customer this week. He wanted to hear how the speakers sounded. Since this is the same Mac I use for work at MacMedics, I had the perfect demo. I navigated to YouTube.com and searched for the Led Zeppelin Kennedy Center Honors […]

We fixed an AirPod Pro that the customer was told to replace for $8!

“I took my AirPod Pros to the Apple Store, where they told me they weren’t repairable and I had to buy a new one, and that I had to wait until an appointment three hours later that day to be helped. I walked into MacMedics with no appointment; they repaired my existing AirPod Pros for […]

You never know what could happen to your Mac laptop! Backup twice!

You never know what could happen to your Mac laptop! Let’s imagine you are out of town (or at home) and working on a big project, and you accidentally crack your MacBook Air screen. What would happen if your screen were dark and you could not see any part of the screen? If you’re not […]

A Mac repair completed in three hours!

“The minute I noted that my Mac needed service, I scheduled an appointment online for two hours later with MacMedics. Three hours later, I got a call that the work was complete and ready for pickup. They were helpful, knowledgeable, convenient, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of their services.”

It’s 6 Terabytes! You’ll never fill that up!

Check out this Power Macintosh 5400/180 from 1997 with a whopping 6TB SCSI hard drive. I tried to turn this on to take a look, but it will not power up. It was not too surprising since it came in a plastic tub with standing water and leaves. I pulled the hard drive and erased […]

Wait a minute! This is not a Mac!

Wait a minute! This is not a Mac! It’s a Lenovo ThinkPad, and one of our customers no longer needed it and dropped it off to be recycled at MacMedics.  We securely erased it and noticed that the unit was still okay! So, we installed the unit’s version of Windows and donated it to another […]
