I am purcashing a new hard drive for my G4 iMac (flat-panel / dome model).
I live in the K-W area and since First Avenue has closed, I've lost my usual Apple Service Provider.
Carbon has now set up shop in town (which I think is great) but when I peruse their web site, I see that they charge $85 an hour
to install hard drives. That seems excessive to me -- the labour to install the hard drive could end up costing more than the drive itself!
So I dug a little deeper, and I see that the University of Waterloo is listed
on apple.ca as a Service Provider. I called the Univ. of Waterloo, and spoke to a Zhang Kent, who does the service, and he informs me the charge is a flat $45 to install hard drives, which sounds more reasonable to me.
Which leads me to my actual questions for the ehMac community:
Any opinions, good or bad, about either the Univ. of Waterloo or about Zhang Kent in particular, as to their ability to provide good service for Apple hardware?
Just treading new water here, and I thought I'd see if anyone has some input.
Thanks in advance.
