MacUpgrades MOT & Healthcheck – Complex IT equipment requires attention at regular intervals to ensure it is running at peak performance. If your machine is used heavily, it may require a Healthcheck to fix or identify any underlying problems or glitches. We can diagnose and fix issues with both hardware and software, examining critical components for wear and tear and running diagnostic software to examine for file fragmentation and corruption, or disk directory problems. We can also perform minor updates to the operating system and programs, or install patches and bug fixes for common problems. Arrange to drop your Macintosh in for a MacUpgrades MOT & Healthcheck by contacting our Service Department.
