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 service throughout Minneapolis and St Paul. The IT Sage is rated 5 stars with 65 reviews on Google My Business and Yelp. When you are in need of fast, reliable and professional Mac repair or Apple computer 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 reflow.

My areas of service cover the 50-mile radius surrounding the Twin Cities metro. A travel fee of $70 applies for onsite work. My diagnostic fee is $75 which will be waived if the proposed work is completed. 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.

Housecall Apple Computer Repair

Had a very good experience working with Truong. He is friendly, very patient, and willing to explain everything he is doing. My Mac was locking up due to insufficient memory. Truong disabled the programs/files I have no use for, and added more memory for a very reasonable price. I strongly recommend Truong The IT Sage for your computer problems.

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.
