I can't recommend these guys enough.
To keep costs down, if something breaks I'll look online for a tutorial on how to fix it myself. I've replaced my iPod screen and battery in the past doing this. Last year when my iMacs graphics card died I did the same. I found a tutorial on how to replace the card but it said it was a fairly risky process as there was a chance you could snap some delicate connections. I sourced the graphics card online and found a place in the U.S. which after shipping and tax it was going to cost me about €220. I wasn't too confident in my skills, (maybe because my iMac is worth a hell of a lot more than my obsolete iPod), so I emailed a bunch of companies to compare quotes on replacing the graphics card. I got a quote from FixIt in Blackrock for €680 for a new card!!!, CompuB in Grafton St quoted me €326. Stream Solutions €340'ish'. Typetec refused to quote me without me coming and and paying €50 to diagnose a problem I had already identified (at which point I'm pretty much hostage to whatever their repair cost is then). Mactivate quoted me €290. So Mactivate was the obvious option. I figured the extra charge over doing it myself was worth it as I wouldn't end up doing more damage myself and I wouldn't have to wait for shipping etc. Their location is a bit awkward to get to, but thankfully they're open on Saturday mornings. I couldn't make it out there during work hours and I paid the extra 10 quid or so to have the machine couriered back to me.

So recently when my hard drive failed I looked to Mactivate again. They replaced it and saved my data no bother. My iMac is pretty old at this stage, late 2009, so when again I had another issue of it not turning on at all I brought it back out to them. They could not get any life signs from it at all and suspected it was a logic board issue. They ordered a new one from Apple and I was looking at approx €450. (Ouch!) When they installed it it still didn't work. So they went about swapping each component with another working iMac to locate the issue. Turned out it was my iSight camera shorting the whole computer. €75 all in. Massive relief and I will use them again without hesitation.

They charge more then the actual Apple website for parts and that's without delivery included which is free from Apple. Worth doing comparisons between the 2 before making a decision..
