Apple Expert is a fantastic and valuable service for any Mac owner looking to repair or restore their machine. The owner is fair, knowledgable and always willing to help.
I have had two of my own laptops repaired at this shop. Each time I have gone there for help I have been impressed with their quick turn around and affordability.
I am an IT person at a large law firm downtown and I have no problem referring Apple repair inquiries at my work (people's personal computers) to Apple Expert.
Go see them for an estimate before you give up on your machine or have it repaired at a more expensive shop that isn't as willing to help. Save yourself time and money. Pay Apple Expert a visit.
