Louis Rossmann’s rants, tips, and ideas on the laptop repair industry.
Tired of coming here? Buy a more durable machine!

We're often asked, as a store called Mac Laptop Repair Specialist, why do we have Lenovo laptops in the window? Why do we have Lenovo computers as shipping stations, cash registers? Why does the owner have a Thinkpad T520 as a personal laptop? I've always been a function over form kind of guy. I want […]

Macbook Pro falls asleep, GPU issue, to bake motherboard or no?

Kris asked me on youtube about baking a motherboard to make it work again. I get this question a lot, so I decided to share with the rest of the class. I was wondering if you could offer me some words of advice. I own a - somewhat old by now - macbook pro 2007. […]

The importance of having a target demographic.

Target demographics.   You're used to hearing this, I'm sure, in many introductions to marketing & advertising. What is the average sex, race, age, etc, of my targer audience?

What success is - what success isn't.

I feel like buying 500 screens from techrepairparts.com , copying their warranty stamp, and putting their stamp onto every lcd in my defects pile and sending it back to them after a nice chargeback. 100% full on plagiarizing  is bullshit. This happened to us a few years ago... and you see what happens. Compare this company […]
