On June 7th, 2022, I called Apple support regarding my iMac 27" computer. It seemed like it had a hard drive failure and the apple operator made an appointment for me to take it into their Apple authorized reseller store Simply Mac at the Avenues in Marietta, GA. It was supposed to take 3 to 4 days to diagnose the problem then let me know what the repair would entail. I tried to call the store on June 10th to get an update, but I got a recording that they were busy and to leave a message. The same thing happened on June 11th so I drove to the store that day.
It turns out that the Simply Mac store had gone out of business and June 9th and no one called me to notify me to pick up my computer. The rental office of the mall could not open the shop for me to retrieve my computer because the Simply Mac had filed for bankruptcy and it was in litigation. The rental office gave me the number of the bankruptcy attorney in Salt Lake City. I called him and he tried to help but said he was being ghosted by Apple and the landlord. I have made repeated calls to Apple support since June 11th and they could only say that I should wait for an email from Apple. I kept calling Apple, the mall rental office and the attorney every two weeks because I never received an update regarding my iMac.
I finally I received a call from Apple support senior advisor August 24th, 2022 telling me that the representative/partner who emptied the store cannot locate my computer. So basically, my computer has been stolen from a store that was recommended to me by Apple Support. The apple care area manager/agent who emptied the store, will not return my calls or answer my emails. I was advised to contact Simply Mac attorney and file a claim. Attorney sent forms but mentioned that I may never be compensated or if I did it may be years, but I’m filing the claim. How ridiculous is that? I filed a police report for stolen computer.
On mothers day (over a month ago) I switched on my Mac and found ALL MY FILES WERE GONE! I use the Mac for only work and have now lost everything (own my own business). I got in touch with Apple and they blamed Microsoft. Microsoft have proven it's not them and it must be Apple (Microsoft support is amazing!). I have had 4 senior support staff, who have all disappeared. One after the other! No one cares and no one gets in touch! Apple do not have a clue what happened and they have no interest in finding out. Apparently, the senior support do not have managers and if I wanted to make a complaint I have to WRITE A LETTER). Yes, a letter!!!
The most technologically advanced - billion dollar company - do not have an email, do not accept phone calls past senior support - and have to write a letter. How archaic and terrible! I would have to pay for postage, write the letter, send it and wait for maybe a response! Just disgusting! I have no faith in my Mac and will never use a Mac again! I used to love Apple, ( I have an iPhone, iPad etc), but after this, they are dead to me! If you own a company I would strongly advise to back up 5 times a day, if you use a Mac and be very cautious!

This is probably my best transition ever. I switched from the good old windows to Apple with a lot of skepticism and this iMac has proved me wrong. This is the best computer I've ever had and I've worked on a lot of computers over the years. Also, the deals I always get on UltraiZone.com are just unmatched with the best customer support.
Just got my iMac 2021 delivered today. This is my second purchase from UltraiZone and the entire experience was great. The customer support is great and the iMac is just out of this world. Highly recommended.
I needed this laptop mainly for school/Zoom. Most of the websites I need to access can be accessed simply because this is a Mac. Zoom also doesn’t work on this laptop/the default browser which is Safari, it states that it will work on other browsers such as Chrome or Explorer but I would have to pay extra money for. I’m really upset about this because this laptop is nearly 1,000 dollars all for me to not be able to access certain sites. Should’ve stuck with Google Chrome for 300$.
Apple products continue to impress me. Quality is something you can always count on at Apple. I have used the iPhone for a while. This is my first Apple computer, and I will recommend it to anyone. The Best product in the market.
I purchased Macbook Air in 2019, this was my first Apple device. I was really excited when I purchased it. The design was amazing. It costed around 1500 USD, but in my mind it was worth it. In September 2020, it stopped working all of a sudden. It's in excellent condition, but it doesn't work. It didn't fall, I did not spill water over it, it just stopped working. Now Apple wants another 500 USD, to fix it, since I didn't purchase Apple Care. I have decided to buy a new laptop instead, I simply do not understand the craze. I will not be buying Macbook again. When I come to think of it, it's slow as well compared to other laptops in similar price range. Hope this was helpful.
I really enjoy the ease of use and the quality of media when I play it. I only wish the laptop screen was bit bigger. It is light and easy to carry which as my work computer is very beneficial as I took it to and from.
My original (and very first) Mac Mini was purchased in early 2013. I upgraded in September 2020. First (and most importantly), I feel much more secure from cyber criminals while using a Mac. I do utilize an antivirus software regardless. The other (and second most important issue) is SUPPORT. There is a lot to be said about Apple supported products. The frustration level in using Apple devices is very low. Even if an Apple store is not available to you, there is the option of online support or telephone support. However you decide to solve your issues, they will be resolved or Apple will pursue it until it is.
This powerhouse of a computer has a small footprint and modest cost. The Apple Mac Mini can use any wired or wireless keyboard and mouse or trackpad and modern monitor or TV. It works seamlessly, genuinely plug and play, with all Apple accessories as well as third party peripherals. The pre-installed software means no spending extra $$$ to have it do what you want. There is plenty of power to run my 50" smart TV. What's not to love?
