CapitolMac

Apple Consultant

CapitolMac began in Richmond, Virginia in 1990, as the original, local source for Apple products and support in central Virginia. Through much of the 1990s and until 2002, we were one of several Apple Specialists located throughout Virginia and Maryland, under the umbrella of the late New Mac Vision and Alexandria-based Uptime Computer. Among the sister companies we were associated with, only one remains, aside from us: Harrisonburg’s BlueRidgeMac (with whom we’re good friends to this day).

Until 2010, CapitolMac had only one location, in Richmond. Throughout those years, our ownership changed a few times, as did our store location. (We’ve even had some gaps where the store was closed in between owners. The stories behind this are actually a lot more exciting and drama-filled, but defamation lawsuits might ensue if we got into greater detail, so we’ll refrain.) A year after the company was acquired by its current owner in 2009, we opened a second location in Baltimore. Read more

    This computer was previously used by my mother, and when she gave it to me, it was extremely slow. I took it to CapitolMac, and they installed a new battery as the old one was protruding out. They wiped it clean and reinstalled my requested version of OS. The computer is like night and day. For $250, I was able to salvage a perfectly good 2011 Macbook Pro rather than having to dish out thousands of dollars for a new one. They did such a good job that I'm going to have them refurbish my 2008 Macbook Pro! ...

    I called because my early-2015 MacBook Pro trackpad wasn't working, and spoke to Andrew. He's the store manager, and director of business development for the whole company, but he answered my tech support call.

    I was only in town for a few days, and Andrew was super helpful in explaining all of the likely explanations for my trackpad dysfunction. I said, "I'm going back to Houston in three days, and it's my work computer. Can you fix it before then?" ...

    Excellent service, very pleased with the outcome and highly recommended! I recently took my MacBook Pro laptop to this store because the battery died and needed to be replaced. The apple store wouldn't even order the battery because my laptop is "too old" according to them, but the computer had been 100% functional till the battery died, so of course I was very anxious to have it fixed! ...
