The latest service to be offered by MacResQ is
a hinge replacement service
aimed at PowerBook G4 users. The service costs US$499.
The hinges on some older PowerBook G4s can wear or break after constant use, leaving users unable to use the LCD screens without propping them up on another object or taking other drastic action. This new service replaces one or both hinges as necessary to correct the issue, restoring such PowerBooks to a useable state once more.
The cost includes pick-up at your location — the company delivers a “PowerBox” suitable for packaging and shipment via an overnight carrier. Once you’ve packaged the PowerBook up, it’s sent out by overnight delivery to the PowerBookResQ service center, where the hinges are replaced. The PowerBook is then returned overnight to your location.
