last week I had a good experience that maybe other be interested in knowing, so that's why i share this story :)
I broke my Macbook pro LCD and after I got a shocking quotation from Apple service center in Auckland tired to google for possible cheaper source on the web.
I even accept to buy it from trademe auction considering all type of the risks like warranty, made up story like I found when we moved into the new place ;) .... but nothings there either!
It was a bit surprised when I my first google search found a third of price of what I quoted by apple on a new LCD in our neighborhood area! First I couldn't believe and thought it's a web mistake ... but after I had my LCD replaced by Giga Computers in Onehunga feeling like someone who rub the bank! So that's why I said better to share with others and let others know about it too.
Now here are the points:
- 5 minutes goggling is always good for all projects you have in mind!
- Trademe is not the only option or the first option at least! possible good for dummies lol even you can find most of the items cheaper in local $1 $2 $3 shops!
- If you really care about the type of service, computer related parts better to trade with a local business not a computer software or 10 years old on online auctions as long as you can afford it!

And finally YES I'm advertising for http://www.gigacomputers.co.nz as I'm a real happy customers and seen their services and equipment they have for repairing laptops! So I post my feedbacks and want to know if anyone knows about them or not.
Hope anyone enjoyed this experience :)
