Recently we have had numerous customers coming to see us after being quoted large amounts of money to get their Apple Macbook repaired by Apple, some of these are still in warranty but the customer would lose their data should they proceed with a warranty repair with Apple.  This is especially the case for the M1 variant of the Mac with its onboard SSD soldered to the motherboard.  In this situation Apple would replace the motherboard losing the customers data,  we can usually repair the motherboard retaining the data and fixing the Apple Mac at the same time.
