I am Truong Nguyen, owner and founder of The IT Sage. I have a strong passion for technology, especially Macintosh computers. Apple Mac repair is my specialty. I have worked on every model of Apple computer built since 2000. There’s a real satisfaction in keeping an older Mac running in good repair. Anything and everything inside a Mac that requires service, I can help.
When you are in need of fast, reliable and professional Apple Mac repair services in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area, contact me. Schedule a personal consultation via email at email@example.com or call/text at 612-200-7400.
Besides providing quick and reliable diagnostics at no cost to my customers, my estimate will precisely list the parts and labor required to get your Apple Mac computer repaired. On top of that, wouldn’t it be nice to know that you won’t have to pay for my time if I can’t fix the issues with your Mac?
My areas of service cover the 20-mile radius surrounding the Twin Cities metro area, Minnesota. A travel fee of $70 is charged per job. Unlike many of my competitors, I do not charge a premium for fixing Apple Macintosh computers. I treat every single one of my customers equally, yet personally to cater his or her unique needs. My flat labor rate is $50 an hour. If I can’t fix it, there’s no charge!
The joy of returning a working Mac to its owner is a feeling like no other. I’ve helped grandparents recover thousands of cherished photos from a crashed hard drive. I’ve repaired liquid damaged MacBook Pro laptops for college students. I’ve replaced cracked screens on MacBook Airs. I’ve performed the even more challenging work of fixing graphic card issues for photographers through a process called rework/reflow.

MacBook Pro Liquid Damage Repair
That is when I found Truong and his website, The IT Sage. He was extremely helpful in explaining the cause of my computer's problems and carefully went over what he would do to repair whatever damage may have occurred. Best of all, his price was extremely reasonable and he promised no charge if he could not repair it. Truong fixed my computer in 3 days for a fraction of the price anyone else demanded around the web. His service was local and I did not need to ship it across the country, but simply picked and dropped it from his home. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

MacBook Pro Wifi and Bluetooth Card Replacement
So instead, I looked up "mac and computer repair online." I saw Truong's success rate and decided to call him up. Truong was able to meet with me the next day. He replaced my WiFi/Blutooth card without any hassle - within 15 minutes - and at a much lower cost than the Apple Store quoted.
I highly recommend the IT Sage and his expertise!

MacBook Pro Battery Power Issue
The second time, I had left it overnight in very cold weather and my battery died. After nearly five years, it was to be expected. Truong changed the battery and also did some data recovery (now I realise the data was lost due to my dying battery). I was able to have my computer back in time to do my work and the price was very reasonable.
Fast and efficient service and he is simply NICE. I would recommend him to anyone!

MacBook Pro retina Liquid Spill Repair
Then I came across Truong through Yelp, contacted him straight away, had him pick up my computer the following morning. Within 2 days, he had this computer fixed and now it's working in great condition. The keyboard backlight was apparently damaged (probably from plugging in my charger, which is my fault) but the logic board is fixed which is what I really need and all that matters!! He saved me FORTUNES and I would highly recommend him and I would definitely go back to him when there's a problem!

Apple Mail Sending Issues
Also, my mom has severe arthritis in her hands and has difficulty controlling the mouse. Truong recommended a different kind of mouse that he thought may be easier for my mom to control and cause less hand pain. He went above and beyond the call of duty offering to pick one up and delivering it to her house for her to try out for a week.
We couldn't be more pleased with the work he did and will be recommending him to family and friends. Truong is also a pleasure to work with--very polite and professional.

MacBook Air 11″ Keyboard Replacement
I spilled tea on my mac air, and the keyboard stopped working. The apple store said the damage would cost $750 to fix (more than the computer is worth). Truong got me back up and running in just a couple days for $280.
Absolutely perfect service!

SSD and RAM Upgrades for 17″ MacBook Pro
I contacted him on a Friday night desperate for help with my MacBook Pro that is 5 years old. He responded the next morning and said he could meet with me that afternoon. After discussing my issues with it, he said it sounded like the hard drive. He was able to run a few tests and determined that was so.
He installed a new hard drive, updated my Mac to latest version and gave me more storage. He contacted me throughout the whole process and was super nice and friendly. The best part was that I could pick it up in less than a day and his prices were extremely reasonable!
I cannot thank him enough for his amazing work and customer service. It now looks like I have a brand new, reliable computer! Thanks Truong!

MacBook retina Water Spill Repair
I spilled water into my MacBook Pro retina. It only took him two days and now it worked as before! And only cost me 240 dollars compared to 800 dollars at Apple Store!
Yueyi in Eden Prairie, MN
MacBook 13″ OS X Tuneup
I had an issue on my mac related to the speed, which he solved for me plus he did extra little details like making a shortcut on the desktop to the app settings folder that I was looking for. He works fast, and his fees are incredibly reasonable. FYI he works out of his home, so that might throw you off at first, but he is super professional and it does not feel weird or unsafe at all. He called me periodically to update me on his progress so I never wondered what was up.
Overall a great experience! It's hard to find really good computer people, especially for Mac. I will 100% use Truong again the next time I need mac service or repair. Thanks Truong!
