Many people think that bulkier and sometimes more expensive personal computers, and laptops especially those power-packed ones used for gaming and advanced video editing, are harder to repair. On the contrary, regardless of the laptop model, brand or parts used within, repairing laptop problems follow the same procedure. Identify the problem or part, and then fix or replace whichever is more beneficial for our valued customers here in Brisbane.
Over the years laptops have grown more and more compressed despite their superb and increasing capabilities, but compared to earlier laptop models which cost around $4000+ and only well paid CEO’s or executives could afford, today, price range for high-end laptops are relatively cheaper compared to the price range of laptops before they became part of our modern lives.
While many people prefer to use and buy personal desktop computers for their workload, most Australians prefer using laptops for the over-arching convenience factor.
Parts of a Whole
Today’s modern and slick laptops like Ultrabooks are slimmer, more compact, and more powerful than ever before. But with its design and increased functionality has come an array of components that are more pricier to get to than any individual component in a standard desktop computers (or even standard laptops like HP, Sony or Toshiba)
Most laptops nowadays are too complex to fix by yourself at home, and disassembling them is also more complicated for DIY’s, professional help is usually needed for fixing laptops. The issue with high-end laptops is that some parts are hard to come by as many parts are often customised for each model. The only way to replace certain parts of a laptop is by ordering through an authorised repair service provider like The Electronic Fix.
Keep in mind that when you have problems with some parts like RAM, SSD or others, using other non-brand parts may seem ideal and even cheaper. However, if a computer technician puts in the parts of a different laptop when they are not supposed to, there is never a guarantee that the laptop will work as well as before, not to mention losing on warranty claims in the future. Always find a laptop repairmen (or woman) who can tell you exactly what the cost will be before they begin working, or else, you may realise that it would have been cheaper to get a new laptop instead of trying to fix an old one.

New Design New Problems
Many new laptop features and components are not intended to be replaced, at least not until the model is few years old. Not only will spare parts won’t be available quickly, you shouldn’t get duplicates from the non-manufacturer either, that means, some high-end laptops (and their parts) are manufactured in small quantities and as market demands.
Consider the superb looking Retina display feature on the Macbook for example, it can easily be damaged as it just requires a slip of the hand, but most other Macbook repairers will tell you that it can’t be fixed without compromising another unit to get the part, or quote you expensive repair costs just because you are an Apple Mac user.
With many models of the Macbook laptops, you’ll find that at times, some components are so cleverly sealed there is almost no way to drill open the unit as there are no screws to use to access the internals. At its core, this is another example of inclusion of integrated circuits and designing slick and compact laptops, which means that hinges and screws are not used to connect parts with the laptop. Just imagine sipping a coffee at a Starbucks and working on your laptop, surely, you’d appreciate working on your new slick model of Mac Pro more so than other non-mac bulky looking laptops.
Sometime Its Catch 22 When It Comes to Repairing Laptops
There are thousands of different models and hundreds of different brands of laptops, we as consumers would have loved to have fewer brands making laptops because it would have been cheaper to own one, as well as maintain also repair it. However, this is not the case, as a result working out the extent of the problem, and the risk of dismantling the unit is not an easy task.
For inexperienced laptop repairers in Australia, figuring out the issue in high-end laptops may take hours, and that could be problematic for you because most repair service providers (including Mobile Laptop repair technicians in Brisbane) charge by the hour instead of per repair project. That means, you may end up paying quite a lot of dollars simply to find out the problem as opposed to getting the laptop fixed.
