The test of good customer service is when things go a bit wrong. There was some confusion about one aspect of my repair and Frances resolved the problem effortlessly and with a smile. You can place your trust in this organisation company. Excellent! They care about their reputation, which is a great thing.
It-Tech Online did a fabulous job on my MacBook Pro repair. Frances was very clear about how to fix the issues I had, how much it would cost and how long it would take. The repair was on budget, turned around within a couple of days as discussed and I have my computer improved and working better than before. I would recommend Frances and her team very highly.
Absolutely fantastic experience. You'll be provided not only their professional repair service, but also free but still professional education on how to make the best of your devices and how to properly look after your gadgets. Will definitely be a loyal returning customer,
I had a great experience getting my water damaged Macbook Air (2015) fixed here. I was able to mail my laptop to Frances to get it checked out and repaired. Once I sent it (from around Doreen area to her shop in Bentleigh East) it took less than a week for her to find out what was wrong, get the necessary parts and fully repair my laptop and then send it back to me. The correspondence was very friendly and professional and I am going to definitely recommend this service to anyone that needs it!
I had a GPU fault on my Macbook Pro which made it shut down at odd times and finally it would not boot at all. I was very sad. I spoke to Frances on the phone, she walked me through the repair process and the price, everything was very clearly communicated. I posted my Macbook Pro to Frances that day, she fixed it and now I am writing this review on my amazingly resurrected Macbook 🙂 Now I am very happy again.
Thank you Frances, you are amazing
What a great shop! Francis is amazing, her attitude and energy to help is excellent. Took two macbooks in for repairs and upgrades after being told by another shop to replace. Could not be happier, its been a few months and they have not skipped a beat.
This is easily the best experience I have ever had with a business, cannot fault it.
Thanks so much!

MacBook Repairs Outline | two-level repair process
1. Basic MacBook repairs:
An Apple laptop consists of the following parts: screen, keyboard, touchpad, battery, hard drive, Wifi card, logic board, and connecting cables. The objective is to identify the faulty part and replace it. This part-replacing type of Apple MacBook repairs are relatively simple and can be done in one business day if the spare parts are in stock. We offer competitive prices for the following MacBook repairs in Melbourne:
Most Apple Mac repair providers, including Apple Stores and the authorised repairers(AASP), provide services at this level only. At IT-Tech Online, our team of mac doctors provides these basic Mac repair services and extends our services deep into the high-tech core section of the Apple computer – Mac logic board. It is a Mac logic board combined with macOS that makes an Apple computer unique to a PC.
2. Advanced MacBook repairs (chip-level repairs):
We provide one-stop Apple Mac repair services in Melbourne for MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and the recent models of MacBook Pro with Touchbar. If a faulty logic board is found in your MacBook while performing the basic Apple laptop repair, we will inform you before starting the chip-level repair. At this level, we work on individual MacBook logic board components (or chips) such as CPUs, GPUs, ICs, transistors, resistors, capacitors and so on. The objective is to identify the faulty chips among the many thousands on the board and then replace them without damaging the surrounding chips. We repeat this process until all faulty chips are found and replaced and all the functionality and stability tests have been passed. To perform the task effectively and economically, one needs specific electronic knowledge, detective reasoning skills, micro-soldering skills, experience, proper equipment and most importantly: a comprehensive understanding of the Apple mac logic board designs – the electronic schematic diagrams.
MacBook Water Damage Repair Procedure
MacBook water damage accounts for most failures in Mac computers. Subjecting your Macbook to water can result in mild damage such as keyboard failure to fatal damage such as CPU destruction or a burned hole on the logic board. We will pull out the logic board and inspect it under a microscope. We will replace all the burned and corroded chips. We use the Apple logic board schematic diagrams and advanced equipment to troubleshoot the remaining faulty chips that a microscope cannot spot. After being repaired, the logic board will be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner and dried up in an oven, ready for assembly.
The MacBook screen, case, keyboard, touchpad, and the battery may also need to be cleaned or replaced depending on the situation. All parts will then be re-assembled back into the MacBook case for a final comprehensive test.
MacBook Pro Graphics Card Issue
Some MacBook Pro models are prone to GPU failure. The 2011 A1286 15" model and the A1297 17" model are at the top of that list. We have developed permanent solutions to solve the problems by removing the faulty AMD GPU and rewiring the screen directly to the Intel intergraded graphics chip. We rolled out these services to fix the MacBook Pro graphics card in December 2016 when Apple ended the GPU recall program. Since then, we have done hundreds of units with no single return for a second repair, no software compatibility issues, no firmware upgrade issues and no PRAM reset issues. It is the best trouble-free solution on the market.
We started IT-Tech Online in 2000 and have provided high-quality Apple computer repair services in Melbourne ever since. We have the best Mac doctor team in Melbourne. Our dedication drives us to be the best computer repair service in Australia, and we know our customers feel the difference.
Frequently Asked Questions:
I have spilled a drink on my MacBook, and now it won’t start. Can you fix it?
Yes. The drink will corrode the electronic components such as resistors and capacitors on the Mac logic board. We will replace the faulty chips with new ones. This is called component-level repair, the highest level of Mac repair. We can repair it in 2 days. This is the most economical way to get your Mac back to work again.
Can you recover data from my water damaged MacBook Pro?
Yes. If your Mac has a removable hard drive, we can retrieve the data directly from the drive. If the SSD chips are soldered to the logic board in your MacBook, we need to repair the logic board first to get access to your data. Some MacBook models have a “lifeboat" port for accessing the onboard SSD chips directly via a special data recovery tool.
My Mac’s startup desk is nearly full. Can you fix this?
Yes. We can clean up your hard drive and free up some space, depending on your situation. As the prices of SSD drives drop, a better solution is to migrate all your data and applications to a bigger, faster and more reliable SSD drive. You have options to choose the SSD drive capacity suitable for your needs and budget.
Can I upgrade my MacBook SSD drive?
You can upgrade the SSD drive if your MacBook has a removable drive. These models include MacBook Pro A1708, A1398, A1502, A1425 and MacBook Air A1466, A1465, A1370, A1369. All MacBooks with SSD chips soldered on the logic board are not upgradable. These models include MacBook Pro A2289, A2251, A2159, A2141, A1990, A1989, A1707, A1706, MacBook Air A2179, A1932 and 12" MacBook A1534. You can find the model number on the back case.
