I highly HIGHLY recommend MacAdvantage to anyone facing problems with their Apple computer. I called around and did not get a good feeling about many of the other mac computer repair places. Immediately I did with Mac Advantage. Tam was incredibly calm, knowledgeable and competent. His prices were incredibly reasonable and he really, really wants to help and is generous with his time. It is so rare to find a service company that really represents generosity and calmness as well as competence. Tam Advantage is all you need. Run don't walk. Thanks Tam!! ~ Sarah Middleton, MA. LE.

Thank you so very much for staying late, and helping me wade thru my current quagmire. Neither AT&T, nor Yahoo’s nonexistent help, nor the Apple Store Geniuses could help me figure out what was wrong with my email. i needed you. You may quote me in promoting & praising your smarts. Highly competent, excellent technicians who know their macs, inside and out. Sweet, calm people, who are pros at helping me unravel impermeable puzzles. My songs and my pictures are back the relief is enormous. ~ Pamela F Smith, Artist, Petaluma, California

Both the Apple Store in Santa Rosa and the aircraft mechanic at the Petaluma Airport recommended Tam for aviation apps support and iPad repair. As a pilot himself, Tam is uniquely qualified to help with aviation applications and related iPad issues. He offers remote support for both my iPad & MacBook, so he’s there to help wherever in the world I happen to be. Then, whenever I’m in Sonoma County, I stop by the shop for a hardware tune up. With a growing staff of Apple Certified Mac Technicians - several of them with more than 15 years experience as mac techs - there’s not a problem they can’t fix - quickly, superbly and economically too. ~ Aja Dizon, Pilot, Paris, France and Petaluma, CA, USA


As I told Brandon as I was leaving, he and Tam are worth their weight in gold!  I am SO thankful to have MacAdvantage as my computer resource. Laurelai is quick to respond when I call or email, and I totally appreciate that as well. Check in is quick, my needs are written and understood in detail, and everything is taken care of much quicker than anticipated.  I'm always impressed.  There is a friendliness and calmness about the people and place of business that I love.  This is the best computer help I've ever received, and I recommend MacAdvantage to every Mac user I know! ~ Shoshana Bennet Ph.D., Clinical Psychology Medical Consultant, Petaluma Wheelmen Cycling


I always trust that Tam has by best interest at heart and that you will do everything to help get my system working again. I so appreciate the character of your business and your calm timely attention when something dramatic has happened to my drive! More and more the computer and internet does everything in my world from finding phone/map listings to complicated necessary communications and so to be without it is a major disruption. I always understand what problems you are addressing and appreciate the way it is communicated to me in human terms - not tech speak. ~ Corey Hitchcock, Artist, Sculptor, Videographer, Petaluma, California


Tam at Mac Advantage is wonderful. He can log on to your computer remotely. He has a very calming influence on my life. ~ Jane Murphy, Artist, Aerial Perspective Paintings, Jane Murphy Designs, Petaluma, California


Mac Advantage is a great local resource.   To be able to get my data transferred quickly when my old laptop failed and I was scheduled to go on a trip in less than 48 hours was great.  As always, Tam is a thoughtful and helpful person to work with, and the work was/is done reliably.  We'll keep coming back and referring friends. ~ David Stevens, Christian Science Practitioner, Petaluma, CA


You transferred my iPod click wheel files to my MacBook Pro, and I just wanted to say thanks and let you know all files are there--okay to recycle my old iPod now. I told you I'd let you know and I'm sorry, but it slipped my mind. Thanks again for saving my music! ~ Peter Stein, Writer, Stein Creative, Petaluma, CA


I have been going to Mac Advantage for years now starting with my Mac Quicksilver crashing (and them recovering it) to what I have now - a Mac book pro.  I have nothing, but glowing words for this business!  If you want friendly customer service, knowledgeable people who know Macs inside and out and timely service, then this is where you want to take your business. ~ Collette Michaud, Collette Michaud Design, Petaluma, CA


Thanks again for the database emergency service. I know you had other appointments and that you squeezed us in. ~ Shannon Lemme, Project Manager / Designer, Pomegranate Communications, Inc., Petaluma, CA


I want you to know how much I respect your honesty. You could have easily charged me for data retrieval and no one would have known. My mac is running better now than when it was new. ~ Ted Lindquist, Police Detective, Ret., Petaluma, CA


You’re a very ethical business! I want to thank you for all your efforts on my behalf. At the end of the day, it’s only a machine. I’m glad I found you. ~ Jim Brandon, Petaluma, CA


Frustrated, as I was, with a reduction in speed and other problems that several visits to Mac stores in San Diego did nothing to alleviate, Tam applied his magic today and I will certainly Yelp and Facebook excerpts from this email to sing your praises. My thanks for such conscientious and effective service and pleasantry. I want to express not only my appreciation for the expertise and patient care (pun intended) that Tam delivered both on phone and especially at the shop, but also to let you know that up to this visit I was not a Mac adherent, having spent my prior years as a pc user (as well as building and networking my English classroom at Petaluma High with 30+ pc's).  When I came home after today's visit and used this now upgraded MacBook, I'm a convert. Such a dramatic shift in speed that my mac is now equal to the two desktop pcs I own that are two years newer.  I'm surprised and delighted.  My daughter, who won't dirty her hands on either of our home pc's (and from whom I inherited this Mac after gifting her a MacBook Pro upon her university graduation last year) likely won't believe the change in this computer as she had difficulties in upgrading the OS. Most assuredly I'll pass this on to Mac users I know. 

~ Robert Liroff, English Teacher, Petaluma High


A local company whose prime directive seems to be great service in a friendly and timely fashion at extremely reasonable rates, I would not hesitate to recommend them for Apple support or Mac Help.   ~ Jack Haye, Industrial Light & Magic; Burning Man, Petaluma, CA

Now I really understand how bluetooth works and my comcast modems. Tam was great! ~ Roxanna Marinak, Artist, Jeweler, Pearls Roxanna, Petaluma, CA


I’m extremely appreciative of all the extra time you gave me - so much so that I’m bringing Tam a nice fruit tree by way of thanks! ~ Suzanne Biaggi, Sculptor & Amateur Photographer, Petaluma, CA

Thanks so much, Tam & Alejandra! I’m up and running again, and can finish my work. Have a great summer! ~ Craig Coss, Illustrator, Petaluma, CA

You guys are awesome! Your mac service is really good! ~ Crystal White, Petaluma, CA


You’ve already set the bar high, by calling me back and understanding the issue I was having with my MacBook Air. I’d already gone to the geniuses at the Apple Store and it was a horrible experience. ~ Cathleen Butler, Petaluma, CA (Exquisite penmanship! MacAdv Team)

Best experience ever of repair / non-repair :) Cosmetic fix of the arrow key on my MacBook Pro keyboard - while I waited. Thanks! ~ Keith Thompson, Petaluma, CA

I want to thank you and the MacAdvantage team for all your help with my troubled iMac. ~ Ben Sowers, Petaluma, CA

My Mac is smoother than it has been in a long while. ~ Jim Matto-Shepard, Petaluma, CA

I have been going to Mac Advantage for over two years now starting with my Mac Quicksilver crashing (and them recovering it) to what I have now - a mac book pro.  I have nothing, but glowing words for this business!  If you want friendly customer service, knowledgeable people who know Macs inside and out and timely service, then this is where you want to take your business! My latest issue was with Mobileme and related calendar syncing issues.  I first went to the Mac Genius Bar at SR Plaza Mall where they spent 2.5 hours on it and didn't fix the problem.  Yes, the service was free, but my time which didn't even include driving from Petaluma and back wasn't.  Recently, I let Mac Advantage take a look at the Mobileme issue while I was getting my DVD replaced there; Tam and Brandon fixed the problem, which turned out to be not an easy fix, but they stuck with it and until they got it working. Tam and his team always greet me with a smile and gladly answer any questions I have, no matter how simple or elementary in nature.  I'm so thankful to have such a great company nearby to call on for Mac service and/or questions. ~ Collette Michaud, Children’s Musuem of Santa Rosa, Michelle Michaud Design

I love you guys! I got my mac from you. Yay. You’re there! ~ Michelle Adcock, Petaluma, CA

Tam is one of my heroes now! Thank him for his excellent work & knowledge.

Tam let me know Apple would repair my MacBook free of charge even though it was out of warranty. ~ Tom Pittard, Artist, Petaluma, CA

Just wanted to thank you for providing the very hidden file path for locating my previous iBooks that were not transferred when we merged multiple users….Without your help, I would have had no way to even know where to look - even after checking on Apple community help forums!

I’d say don’t go anywhere else, only to MacAdvantage! Thank you and keep smiling!” ~ May Wong and Wayne Lewis, Pool Spa & Electrical, Petaluma, CA

I am extremely pleased with your services. I spoke with Tam in the morning of Monday, March 21 for upgrading RAM on my MacBook Pro. After checking if he had necessary memory parts on hand, he told me to come by your store in the afternoon. I brought my MacBook Pro to the shop on Monday afternoon, and Tam installed RAM right. Friendly and efficient services to easy parking, I am a happy customer. Those who recommended MacAdvantage to me are absolutely right and I highly recommend MacAdvantage to anyone who needs services for Mac products. ~ Junko Rich, Petaluma, CA

Great follow-up, great email!! Thanks for the receipt. Left with an overall really good experience. Thanks for solving the problem, and finding the bad chips.

After having a major meltdown with my MacBook Pro, I had gone to several places searching for someone to help. I had spilt water on my laptop in the evening and did not find this out unfortunately until the next morning. The first place I took it to cleaned it up, it worked while it was plugged in, but the battery itself was dead and screen had some water damage. After a few days, the screen completely died leaving me in panic over all my data. When I took it back to the first place they didn't have much to say besides having to pay quite a bit to replace the screen so then I went to Best Buy for a quote from Geeksquad and that was an even higher quote. I just wanted my data at this point, luckily I was suggested to take it to Mac Advantage and I can happily say they saved my butt! Tam was awesome, provided me a hard drive to purchase and was able to get all my info! On top of that, he was able to get my computer to function if hooked up to an external display which he walked me through how to do and what I would need. When I had asked other places they had said it wasn't able to work like that so I am beyond happy to have my data and the excellent service and help Tam and his group provided! Any future issues I will be taking my computer to them! ~ Katharine Bennett, Petaluma, CA

Hi there Mac Advantage, Your service is always amazing! Thanks you so much for all you do. ~ Sarah Healy, Petaluma, CA

I don’t freak out or panic when something goes wrong with my computer anymore. Coming here is like therapy for my computer. He doesn’t get rattled and there is something about him that is very calming. You guys are awesome. ~ Jane Murphy Designs, Artist, Petaluma, CA

Thank you all at Mac Advantage so very much for your invaluable help. ~ Janis Couvreux, Huffington Post, Petaluma, CA

While reading this I was trying to find even one thing I don't like about MacAdvantage. I can't think of a thing. I especially appreciate that Tam is available to all of us. I don't even mind waiting there while he talks to other customers on the phone because I know he stops what he is doing to speak with me when I call. ~ Doris Nelson, Petaluma, CA

(By email) Thanks guys, all is well and as usual, you guys were great. Tam is awesome. Thanks Marissa and Jazz and all. ~ Terry Murphy, Petaluma, CA


Thanks for all your help and I look forward to working with you TAM on some other lessons to help me understand the workings of the adobe products. Thanks again and hope you all have a great weekend! Cathy (by email). ~ Cathy McGuinness, Photographer, Petaluma, CA


Everything was perfect once again. Thank you Tam and all at Mac Advantage. ~ Megan Donner, Petaluma, CA

There’s a level of comfort and trust working with Tam that I wouldn’t get at Apple or Best Buy. My wife Betsy has worked with Tam for many years. I’m making the switch from PC to Mac for my business. ~ Mark Hall, Art Director with Betsy Ehlen Hall Art Direction, Petaluma, CA

I ended up taking the mac into Tam and indeed (along the still possible problems with a likely funky Belkin fire wire hub), my hard drive was failing.  Change out and data transfer done in a day and at a reasonable price.  WAY BETTER than Mac Networks and none of the attitude. A great referral and a new dedicated follower. ~ Carl Taber, Certified Specialist, Worker’s Comp, California Board of Legal Specialization, Petaluma, CA

Great service and a bonus of delightful people ~ Al Hirshen, retired Attorney, Petaluma, CA

I so appreciate you guys! ~ Adam Kinsey, Nonprofit Consultant, Full Cup Consulting, Petaluma, CA

What is unusual about MacAdvantage is that staffers offer high touch service and in depth knowledge combined with clarity and accuracy. No one pretends to know more than they do; and no one promises what can't be delivered. Human kindness is also a hallmark of the company. When I recently dropped by to pick up a computer with my 80+-year-old friend in the car, she was thirsty. When I mentioned this to Tam, she was offered a glass (yes, a glass not a paper/plastic cup) of tasty distilled water. Where else would that happen? ~ Margaret Pick, SEO Media Services Pacific Vista Productions, Petaluma, CA

Thank you so much! I had a terrific experience all around and will be coming to you with all my Mac related needs! So happy to have found you! ~ Alexis Scarborough, Artist Musician, Petaluma, CA

Mac Advantage is a great local resource.   To be able to get my data transferred quickly when my old laptop failed and I was scheduled to go on a trip in less than 48 hours was great.  As always, Tam is a thoughtful and helpful person to work with, and the work was/is done reliably.  We'll keep coming back and referring friends. ~ David Stevens, Photographer, Petaluma, CA

Wow, thank you so much. Great service as usual. ~ Rod Celgarl, Petaluma, CA

Please send me an invoice. You helped me last week & I expect to pay you for your time! ~ Margaret Pick, Media Services, Pacific Vista Productions, Petaluma, CA

We’re thrilled you’re there - we used to have to drive all the way to Berkeley. Your service and techs are wonderful. ~ Kim Hawkins, Producer, Petaluma, CA

MacAdvantage is an anomaly in this age of corporate greed and outsourcing. A local company whose prime directive seems to be great service in a friendly and timely fashion at extremely reasonable rates, I would not hesitate to recommend them. ~ Jack Haye, Industrial Light & Magic; Burning Man, Petaluma, CA

I know that you guys work with Pixar, Industrial Light and Magic, Whole Foods but when I need help I feel like I am treated as if I was one of those impressive and important clients. As a marginally proficient Mac user, I am always treated with the utmost respect, kindness and understanding. The work is handled efficiently and effectively, always on time or better and at a fair price. Finding a warm welcome and a gentle knowing response to my technical concerns is the rare gift offered by Tam, Laurelai and the staff at The Mac Advantage. ~ Rick Kantor, R & R Productions, Penngrove, CA

W Everyone there is an absolute delight to work with. ~ Jamie Campana, Film Editor, Filmcamp Films, Petaluma, CA

I have been very impressed with the Mac Advantage over the last few years.

Most appreciated. ~ Nancy Bosch, Bosch Appraisals & Estates, Petaluma, CA
