A little Thank You post for PC Dreams. :)
Disclaimer: This isn’t a paid ad or a sponsored post. Just wanna share this great Mac repair place I found that does trade-ins and takes in old gadgets for cash as well.
So I had this crap MacBook Pro 13″ that was dropped and severely dented. I desperately wanted to get a new one but refused to pay for a brand new one cos my MBP was working perfectly fine, just dented and very heavy.
I went online to search for 2nd hand ones and went to neighbourhood computer shops to find one. The one I wanted was the MacBook Air 11″. All the online ones I found didn’t have warranty anymore and the sellers couldn’t really be bothered with me when I asked questions about specs or more details. The neighbourhood ones I went to were worse! Went to one in AMK central and he wanted to charge me $1000 for a 2nd hand MBA and take in my MBP at like $200 or $300. Meaning I need to top up at least $700 in cash. Might as well buy a new one from Apple! >.<
So my last resort was to go to Sim Lim to check out the shops there. I say last resort cos I really hate Sim Lim. I always tweeted about how the men there never see girls before, super ham sup! Even if you are lucky and get the less ham sup ones, they are always so sharky. Agree to wtv price you quote, make you sit down and talk cock with you for half an hour, then bring out the item and tell you it doesn’t come with battery/charger/lens or the specs are halved or half the set is gone, for the price you quoted. ZZZZZZZZZ.
Anywayyy, I went to Sim Lim and randomly walked into PC Dreams. It was the first shop I went to. Shawn attended to me and was SUPER professional and nice. He opened my MBP and checked, then proceeded to gimme a whole list of options(he wrote them down on a piece of paper for me). Like if I wanna change to a better/newer MBP 13″, or if I wanna change to an exact same model but in tip top condition, or if I wanna downgrade to a MBA 13″/11″, and even just to change the housing of my langga MBP, how much I’d have to pay for each option. He explained everything in detail and asked if I had any questions.
During this entire time, I told him I only wanted a MBA 11″ cos my concern is mostly the weight and size. I carry it around a lot and mostly just reply emails and surf, so idc much about specs. They did NOT have a MBA 11″ in the store at that time, meaning he couldn’t close any sale with me that day. Yet he patiently listened to what I wanted and explained everything I asked, very politely and professionally, never once pressuring me to buy anything or to consider an option I didn’t want.
