I'm the owner of a computer repair shop. I have a degree in Computer Engineering Technology along with several certifications and am well versed in PC and notebook repair; it is how I make my living. I have been being asked on an increasingly more often rate if I repair Macs. I have never personally used a Mac and the only Apple product I own is an iPod Touch. I would like to somehow transition into incorporating Mac repair into my business. What would be the best way for me to learn? I realize that I should probably buy a Mac just to learn how to use it but are there any good websites with tutorials, maybe even video tutorials on the subject? I have Googled this on many occasions and the best thing I've found is this:
However, this helps with hardware if you don't know how computer hardware interacts and the roles each piece plays. What I really need is to understand how to solve software related problems and how to recognize from the OS when it is a hardware problem; similar to how I am versed with a Windows-based system. Maybe it is not as difficult of a transition as I am thinking but it remains an area of the unknown to me and I would prefer to know before I waste an excessive amount of precious time for nothing.
Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
