Apple’s One-Year Limited Warranty for MacBook Air excludes coverage for damage resulting from a number of events, including accident, liquid spill or submersion, unauthorized service and unauthorized modifications. If damage is outside the scope of warranty coverage, service may be available through a local AASP or an Apple retail store, but all service charges will be your responsibility. In such an event, you will be asked to approve the estimated charges and accept the terms and conditions for service before authorizing the repair. If the repair is performed at an Apple retail store Apple's Repair Terms and Conditions will govern service. Repair service for a MacBook Air that has experienced catastrophic damage, for example extensive liquid damage or a severe impact that results in the product being disassembled into multiple pieces, is generally not available and not eligible for service.
2 years ago I wrote a review regarding Marin Mac Tech. I have continued to use them with total satisfaction ever since. Recently I realized that most of my tech stuff was so old and out of date that some of it would no longer update. I decided to bite the bullet and get a new iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and a new 27 in. iMac. I wanted them to all be in sync. Over the past 2 years Shiva has become familiar with my tech use and needs so I called on him to guide me through making the best choices and to order any extras as far as storage and memory were concerned. Once purchased from the Apple Store via Marin Mac Tech, he backed up everything from my old equipment to my new. No easy task as I am a hoarder of photos and information as well as emails and don't like to lose anything. Along the way he eliminated some bad malware that had crept into my old computers. I must admit there was quite a bit of adjustment to be made on my part as a lot of stuff was new to me and I kept getting messages regarding things that needed to be done. Shiva was on call, both in person and via remote access, to shepherd me through the transition period. I could not have done it without him. He is a definite wizard when it comes to all things tech. He does not fool around, gets right to the problem and fixes it and helped me to understand what I need to do along the way. All of the people I have dealt with at Marin Mac Tech the past 2 years have been a pleasure to deal with and when it comes to tech help, Shiva is the man! We are lucky to have such a reliable outfit in Marin to call on for our tech support.
What does MacTech cover? Each month MacTech provides new content, featuring articles in all areas “tech” related to Apple products (which are all variants of Mac OS X). Just a taste… System administrators, network administrators, IT Pros, and consultants all find MacTech invaluable with articles about solving problems, implementing solutions, or just road testing the latest technologies.
The 11" MacBook Air carried the desirable essential attributes of a netbook, but without the drawbacks of a slower processor and less capable operating system, albeit at a higher price. At the low end, Apple introduced the iPad—a different form factor than the netbook, but with improved computing capabilities and lower production cost. Both of these led to a decline in netbook sales, and most PC manufacturers have consequently discontinued their netbook lines in response. Capitalizing on the success of the MacBook Air, Intel promoted Ultrabook as a new high-mobility standard, which has been hailed by some analysts as succeeding where netbooks failed.
Hurray for competent people and a well-run small company! I went to Yelp to find someone to help me clean up my Mac and advise me on how to improve performance. I was pretty much expecting to be told my iMac was too old to work with...but no. Shiva comes exactly on time and says "No problem. Great machine...just needs extra space". Hurray! Also advises on improvements to overall Wifi, etc. that MMT does not receive any profit from, and provides the resources on where to get best price. When there are the usual followup questions after my Mac has a bigger brain, I get immediate responses to my texts and remote support that gets all straightened out in no time. I would absolutely recommend them and so glad I made the "preventive" appointment before having a total system crash. Will follow any advice they provide from now on.
Nov 2 New MacBook Pros Announced at October Even Will be upgradeable to Vega 16 and 20 GPUs https://www.google.com/amp/s/arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/10/apple-to-offer-macbook-pros-with-amd-vega-graphics-starting-in-november/%3famp=1 Was wondering how that would translate to playing WOW - how much would one be able to push the graphics at native resolution with those cards and get smooth FPS? Thanks!Dileo8 Nov 2
To the Apple rep here. Worked in IT and hated my monthly rotation when I tested as a cust. supp. level 2 rep. It is stressful and I agree - be prepared to wait or have Apple call back. When I was looking for a job, I considered cust. supp. for a brief time and warned my spouse I'd be stressed out if I took the job, so again, I understand. But I'm a user and this is different.
Nov 2 macOS update message when launching WoW Is there a way to suppress the warning regarding current OS version when launching Warcraft? I'm currently on 10.13.6 and recently I started getting the message that there is an available update to my OS which will increase stability and whatever. I'm not unfamiliar to the message, I have seen it before with other updates to 10.13. I'm planning the update to Mojave at some point, but would like to stop this annoying message, it prevents auto-switching to WoW as it launches.Durr4 Nov 2
Malwarebytes is one of the most popular and most used anti-malware apps, and for good reasons. It is able to destroy many types of malware that other software tends to miss, without costing you absolutely nothing. When it comes to cleaning up an infected device, Malwarebytes has always been free and we recommend it as an essential tool in the fight against malware.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

For my second call, I asked about Siri. I opted for waiting music of my choice at 3:03 p.m. and was on the phone with John in New Mexico at 3:05. John, a friendly and to-the-point representative, pulled up the relevant article and walked me through the steps by 3:07 p.m.. He even emailed me a link to the related support page so I could have those steps handy in the future.
