Mac Repair ServicesApple Mac repair is my specialty. I have experience working on thousands of Macs from Apple’s line of desktops (Mac Pro, iMac, and Mac mini) and laptops (MacBook, MacBook Air, and the latest MacBook Pro retina). The issue you’re having with your Mac right now is one I’ve most likely dealt with before – and even if I haven’t, I have the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to diagnose and fix the problem. I strive to provide the best Mac repair services in Minneapolis and St Paul. Give me a call or send an email/text so I can get your Mac back in working order quickly and affordably.
Computers and all other hardware left more than 30 days after work or diagnostics has been completed will be erased and recycled.

MacBook Pro Top Case Replacement
After searching the internet I found Truong, who not only helped me find the same replacement parts at a much lower cost, but also worked with me around my busy schedule. He made the repairs (new keyboard, optical drive and other updates) in less than 3 hours, and for less than half the cost of what apple quoted me.
All in all Truong does great work, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. I will definitely be sure to reach out to him with any computer problems that mar arise in the future.
Thanks Truong, my laptop is like new again!

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!

MacBook Pro Black Screen Issue
Truong immediately honed in on a couple possibilities, and fixed the issue in a matter of minutes. He also had some memory cards, which he offered at a very reasonable price, and installed them, fixing the issue and doubling the memory. He also fixed a couple annoying app issues. He charged us for 1/2 hr., which was less than the time we were actually there. I have total confidence in his expertise (worked with IT guys in Silicon Valley for 25 yrs), and he's completely honest, honorable, and kind. Thanks, Truong, for a very positive experience and outcome! You're the best!

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 Keyboard Replacement
I just dropped my MacBook off with him. Truong was great at keeping me up to date, via the phone, each step of the way. I had lots of questions (not knowing much about computers) and he was patient with me. Once the main problem was solved, I asked if he could replace the keyboard on the laptop too; No problem! I had been without a working delete and return button for ages. He found a used one for me at a great price. What a deal! He'll be the first person I call if I have a computer problem again.

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 RAM Issue Repair
I had taken it to the Apple Store and a couple of other shops and had quotes of $60 to $99 just to look at it—and up to $189 plus any parts if they could repair it (most didn't think it would be repairable).
Truong got right to work on it and would not have charged me at all if he could not fix it. He solved the mystery, it works fine and all for $80.00. Amazing.
Jim in New Brighton, MN
Macbook Pro Graphic Card Booting Issue
After determining the issue was fairly expensive to fix and knowing that it wouldn't likely last long, he soundly advised me to not do the repair and proceeded to copy everything from my computer to an external hard drive to give me access to the files I lost when the machines unexpectedly broke down on me.
Very personable and friendly, willing to offer truly sage advice with cost in mind.
Kevin in Wayzata, MN
Apple MacBook Pro Hard Drive Replacement
I browsed the internet and the second call I made was to Truong. He listened to me attentively when I explained to him what was going on with my computer and gave me very honest, simple advice. I also suggested to buy my new hard drive at Micro Center in SLP, which I had never been to before. I took my computer to Truong and the next day it was ready to go. He also cleaned the inside and out of my MacBook. This was such a stress free process compared to my last experience. I will be taking my computer, and referring everyone to Truong from here on out. His rate is affordable, even with his traveling fee, if you opt for him to come to you.
TRUONG THE IT SAGE IS THE MAN!!!

Swollen Battery, Trackpad Issue Fix MacBook Pro
He fixed my 2009 Macbook Pro in just a few days, and it's now functioning as well as it did when I first got it. I am really happy with his work, and I'm thrilled I don't have to buy a new computer when my old one works just fine!
I'm a big fan of keeping electronics as long as possible, but I also need them to function well. Truong knew exactly what to do to make my Mac work again. Who knew a swollen battery is what caused my track pad to not work?! Thanks!

MacBook Pro 17″ Keyboard Replacement
Over the years, we've now got Macbooks, a Time Capsule (which backs up storage, and also is used as a router), and we each have iPhones. It's funny, big computer and tech companies seem to assume that if you are buying their products, you are automatically an expert on all things IT related, so suddenly, I not only need to run my business, I need to be able to repair and configure all the computer-related issues? Email, printer, fax, scanning, wireless, hooking up to the television, now our phones...life is getting more complicated (while it's supposed to be getting simpler!) Basically, life is getting simpler with this stuff, but when it breaks, suddenly it's WAY more complicated. Truong is able to come over, sometimes even the same-day, and he ALWAYS fixes the problem - and at a very reasonable rate! He's even cheaper if you can bring your computer to him, and man, every time he comes over, I pick his brain with a bunch of other questions I always have. A+ work!!!

Display Hinges Replacement for MacBook Pro 13″
The price and time for the repairs was completely reasonable and totally different and far less what the Apple Store told me. He even cleaned my Mac and fixed the rubber feet for free!
If you have a problem with an Apple computer that the Genius Bar wants to charge you to fix it, I seriously recommend coming to The IT Sage and getting a second opinion.

MacBook Pro Coffee Spill Repair
Hence, I started looking for a second opinion and found Troung (IT Sage) on the web. It was one of the best things that could happen to my Mac. He was able to give me a very through evaluation of my Mac before he set the price to fix it... He revived it, got a new keyboard and updated my OS as well. Troung was able to fix it not even with a fraction of that apple price. He has excellent personality, communication skills, reliable and trustworthy. I will recommend him without a doubt to anyone who is having computer issues.
Roman in Hopkins, MN
Swollen MacBook Pro Battery Replacement
He's very quick to respond to emails and very friendly to deal with.
Jake S. in Minneapolis, MN
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.
Aun in Lakeville, MN
Macbook Pro Broken Trackpad and Swollen Battery Replacement
He fixed a shattered trackpad due to a swollen battery that was replaced as well, of course and replaced the hard drive. I am very pleased with the service, my computer is running as good as new and looking as good as new! He took the time to clean it and put in another couple of rubber feet on it that had fallen off! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND contacting the IT Sage for any of your Mac repairs.
Kiara P. in Falcon Heights, MN
iMac OS X Software Issues
I'm really glad someone could come out to see exactly what my setup was so a problem could be identified and fixed. He worked fast but took time to explain what he was doing and to answer all my questions in clear, understandable language. Now my home computer syncs with my laptop and my cell phone so I can confidently schedule business meetings, check email on the go and know that everything is backing up properly.
We have 2 hardware upgrades to make. We will certainly have him back to make those repairs. I have never been so happy with IT services and the cost was very reasonable. I hope to be a client for life.
Leslie in Minneapolis, MN
Tea Spill Repair on MacBook Pro
I found Truong on-line and in less than a week, he had my computer working better than ever for one quarter of the cost that Apple had quoted me.
I can't stress enough how trustworthy he is. Great service, fast and reliable. I will turn to him first next time I have any problems with my computer!

Mac Laptop Power Issues Repair
Your recent repair of my laptop that I plugged into a 240 volt outlet on our overseas trip is a case in point. The geek squad’s analysis fee was $75 and their repair estimate was $150 to $350. In one trip to our home you repaired the laptop for much less than what would have cost with the Geek Squad. Thank you!
Joe in Burnsville, MN
MacBook Water Spill Repair
Seriously the greatest experience possible from a bad situation. I'm already recommending him to everyone I know with computer problems. He was quick, professional and incredibly helpful!
Brita in Plymouth, MN
Water Spill MacBook Pro Repair
Fast turn around and the price was very fair. When I picked up my macbook my screen looked perfect and it was sparkling clean top to bottom. I will defiantly be returning to Truong for any future computer needs.
Ashley B. in Farmington, MN
Apple Computer Onsite Wifi Issue Repair
Truong is the only of three computer guys that took the time to determine the original wireless adapter worked fine; it was the computer’s software that had a problem. He did a complete system restore and updated the necessary drivers, and all is well!
If you’re looking for a professional, straightforward, extremely knowledgeable computer tech, go with Truong, “The IT Sage"!
Sue in Anoka, MN
MacBook LCD Screen Replacement
After a coworker recommended him to me I asked if he could fix my very broken screen. He was able to travel to me to pick up the laptop and made sure my screen looked as good as new! I was amazed that he could fix such an old (but beloved) laptop and make it look brand new for way less money or hassle than going to the apple store.
He is so friendly and professional--I've been raving about him to everyone I know!!
Claire in Uptown Minneapolis, MN
MacBook Pro DVD Drive Replacement
There are only a few things in life that work really well (e.g. Macs, Tivo, Snap-On Tools), and now I can add the IT Sage to the list! Truong works out of his home in St Paul, and is even willing to come to your site, if you wish. Like he did with me, he's also willing to let you buy the part, which means that the parts cost is a fraction of what it would be if you went to the manufacturer. I recommend the IT Sage's computer repair services 100%!
Tomkin in St Paul, MN
MacBook Pro 13″ Coffee Spill Repair
I looked online and found the ITSage and brought it out to him. He was honest about the chances of success (50%) but he worked his magic and now I have a totally clean and well-working laptop again. Even better he gave me other tips about getting the speed up. And his fee was incredibly reasonable.
He is going to be my go-to guy for mac repair for the rest of my life!
Miriam in Crystal, MN
Affordable Mac Laptop Repair
The Sage was IT! I write this recommendation on our i-book as it sits on my lap and am grateful for the honest and professional service Truong provided. He saved us $ and allowed the 3R's--this computer won't be placed in a landfill for years to come! Go IT Sage! 🙂
Abby in Stillwater, MN
2011 MacBook Pro GPU Reflow Rework
For someone who doesn't seem to be in a hurry and has time to swap a story or two, he is also very fast once the problem is known. The diagnosis for both our MacBook Pros was hard drive and disc-drive upgrades, accomplished basically overnight at his place except for one disc-drive that was replaced on our dining room table so we could see the process. He also thoroughly cleaned both machines when apart and was happy to lend advice on all questions. We thought the cost was more than reasonable.
We are certainly glad to recommend Truong highly to anyone.
Brian in Falcon Heights, MN
Apple Mac Laptop Boot Issue Repair
I'm very happy with the service provided. Truong is very knowledgeable and explained thoroughly what he fixed.
If you want quality affordable Mac repair, The IT Sage is it. I've been recommending him to everyone.
Ellis in Woodbury, MN
iMac 27″ Video Connector Micro-soldering
I did some of my own research in trying to find people to fix it and how to repair the problem for cheaper instead of replacing. I finally found a solution which required some micro soldering. But I did not want to attempt another repair after the first fiasco. I called Truong and he was happy to do it. He is prompt, and quite through. He was great and saved a ton of money.
These days it is hard to find people that want to do any actual repairs to save money and they want to go straight to replacing (most expensive option).
Srihari in New Hope, MN
Dropped Apple Laptop Repair
I'm thoroughly convinced that Truong can fix anything. I could go on and on but the bottom line is that I would recommend Truong to anyone at anytime for any problem they may have.
My computer runs better now than it ever has. Truong definitely exponentially lengthened the life of my computer and I have no doubt that he can do the same for you. Truong will put all your computer worries at ease!
