Truong, The IT Sage, mac repair expertI am Truong Nguyen, owner and founder of The IT Sage. I have a strong passion for technology, especially Apple computers. Mac repair is my specialty. Over the past 10 years, I have worked on every model of Macintosh built since 2000. There’s a real satisfaction in keeping a Mac running in good repair.

I strive to provide the best Mac repair services in Minneapolis and St Paul, MN. The IT Sage is rated 5 stars with 66 reviews on Google My Business and Yelp. When you are in need of fast, reliable and professional Mac repair or Apple technical support in the Twin Cities metro area, contact me. Schedule a personal consultation via email or call/text (612) 200-7400.


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 graphics card issues for photographers through a process called rework/reflow.

My areas of service cover the 50-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 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.

MacBook Milk Spill Damage Repair

I spilled a glass of milk on my Macbook Pro. The Apple Genius bar said the logic board was ruined and that it would cost over $900 to replace it. They encouraged me to buy a new laptop instead. I brought it to Truong who carefully cleaned the logic board. He brought my computer back from the dead and for a fraction of the price. Thank you so much.

2011 MacBook Pro 15″ GPU Issue

My Mac Book Pro's screen would not work, I brought it in for diagnostic and after Truong installed a new display it was determined it was a bad logic board due to defective graphic card that was not worth replacing. I was not sure what I would be charged and when I picked it up he wanted no payment for his effort. I was extremely impressed with his integrity. I would not hesitate to use him.

MacBook Air 11″ LCD Screen Replacement

First off Truong is a great guy. Someone you can trust with your valuable devices. He's done work on several of our MAC products. He even was able to replace a screen glass on our mac air. Apple doesn't recommend it because of the extreme difficulty. This saved a lot of money versus replacing the screen and glass. His rates are very fair. I strongly recommend his services!
