If something goes wrong with your notebook, often it can cost several hundred dollars to have it repaired. Furthermore, you might have to pay a fee even if the notebook can’t be repaired. Pell Technology, based in Florida, is using a different notebook repair model to lower notebook repair costs. Even monitors (not cracked) that go dim can be repaired for much less than the cost of repairing them.
Their press release reads – The actual method is referred to as component level repair. This involves the technician repairing the different areas of the circuit board. After pre-evaluation, the technicians at Pell Technology will remove the circuit board from the laptop, pin-point the area that is causing the problem, and then repair that specific area.
This is also done with the laptop screen. Although a laptop screen can not be repaired if it is cracked, many times customers have a screen with very faint view or no view at all. A screen with these problems can be removed and repaired.
This type of repair is different from the type of repair that major retailers and most computer shops offer in one major way. Most of these retailers will just quote the customer on the replacement cost of these major parts (circuit board and screen). This price is normally about five times the price of component level repair offered by Pell Technology, Inc.
On average a repair of this nature at Pell Technology costs in the neighborhood of $150, where a replacement would run upwards of $700.
Pell Technology is working with retailers so they can repair notebooks for lower cost as well.
