TechRestore, Inc., a PowerPage sponsor, has announced a flat-rate LCD screen replacement program for PowerBooks and iBooks.
The new service provides a fast and hassle-free method for PowerBook and iBook owners that experience a screen failure due to mechanical issues or accidental damage. The LCD screen repair program has a 24-hour turnaround time and flat-rate pricing that includes all shipping, parts and installation.
The flat-rate LCD repair service price starts at US$399 for iBooks and US$499 for PowerBook G4s, which includes all overnight shipping charges, repair parts and installation. In contrast, a friend of mine got a quote from Apple for an LCD replacement for his PowerBook G4 Titanium one year ago for US$700, that same repair when he called Apple again last month cost a whopping US$1400, just US$100 less than the cost of a totally new PowerBook. Hmmm…
