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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]

You can never have too many backups!

A liquid damaged MacBook Pro

This Mac laptop was in our Lanham store last week. As you can see, it has some pretty bad liquid damage preventing it from turning on. See the following photo: Also, we just heard about a data recovery case for someone who needed their data and had to use a “Clean Room” data recovery firm […]

Here at MacMedics, we strongly recommend AppleCare+ for iPhone & iPad.

Here at MacMedics, we strongly recommend AppleCare+ for iPhone & iPad over ANY other carrier insurance. At Verizon and AT&T, they will often add their insurance to your bill.
