Description of service

My computer recently broke and I wanted to attempt to fix it before I bought a new one. The problem was that the charge wouldn't maintain itself. I thought it was the charger but it was actually a problem with the computer. I called the computer company and they said they would have to fix the motherboard to replace the problem with the charger. The cost of the entire service including the new motherboard and the cost of shipping was going to cost $360.

Review of Service

I was really disappointed in how much the service was. I thought it took too long to get the computer back. I had to ship it and wait almost a month for them to fix it and ship it back. I realize now that I should have just bought a new computer.


First of all, always have a warranty. If something like that had happened and my computer was under warranty the company would have to fix it at no cost. If you don't have a warranty and you need to get the computer fixed, you should probably spring for a new one. Laptops are not that expensive nowadays and unless you want a really high quality computer, you can get one for about the same price as it would cost to replace the motherboard or some other large repair.
