Slow iMac can be a nightmare. Waiting for the application window to resume and spinning wheel to disappear. We all been there and is very annoying. But there is a solution available for Slow iMac Repair in Adelaide. And it does not include buying a new iMac, as we usually are being advised by Apple. That’s their technique in trying to sell more iMacs rather than having the iMac repaired.
Although we all want the newest, shiniest model, we do not necessarily get all the benefits from the new iMac. Most of the time, we utilise 20-30% of their capabilities and general web browsing, streaming and word processing tasks, even 10-year-old iMac handles with ease. Why we would want to spend over 3000$ on a new one when slow iMac Repair cost in Adelaide can be under 1000$

Why and How it happens?
There are many reasons why iMac may work extremely slow. Some are hardware related, others are software related.
Failing hard drive as a reason for the need for Slow iMac Repair
There are many causes for a slow iMac, seen in our repair cases. But one standing out at most is a failing hard drive. Above photo shows failing hard drive on 27″ iMac causing slow performance.
Overheating as a reason for the need of Slow iMac Repair
Quite often also overheating is a cause for a slow iMac. Overheating can be caused by years worth of dust and fluff collected within the iMac. This dust and dirt block the air vents and radiators causing heat to get trapped inside of an iMac.
Unfortunately it is not easy to be noticed due to aluminum thermal design of the Apple products. This design dispenses the heat almost evenly across the case and is hard for the end user to notice any heat issues.
When iMac overheats, the CPU intentionally throttles and reduces its performance in a desperate attempt to reduce generated heat. You can read about Macbook heat issues affecting its battery and infrared images of heating Macbooks on our Macbook Battery Replacement page.
Damaged operating system as a cause for Slow iMac Repair
Furthermore, Slow iMac can be caused by a corrupted or damaged operating system. Mostly caused by a virus or a problematic application. In this case, we offer to reinstall the operating system considering the other parts of the iMac are in a fully functional state.
As a part of the reinstall we offer to backup data and emails.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable iMac Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more iMacs having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the iMacs we repair. Check some of our iMac Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 3000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty iMac is great. That’s an extra half iMac cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned iMac from polluting our one and only Planet.
