New Parts for ChromeBook

Over the past 3 years, ChromeBook laptops have become a popular educational tool utilized by schools nationwide. Its durability and affordability make it perfect for schools teaching small children and young teens. Though Chromebooks can withstand a fairly significant amount of damage when compared to other leading laptops, the device is far from unbreakable. Cracked screens and broken hinges can happen anytime – so when it happens at a school near you, you can be the first shop to offer a solution with the tools and parts for ChromeBook repair from eTech Parts.

We now offer repair parts for the Samsung ChromeBook XE303, the Lenovo ChromeBook X131e, and the new 11-inch Dell ChromeBook 11. These are the most popular non-Apple laptops for students in the US; now you have a reliable source to find the parts and tools to fix them! Whether you own a small business repair shop and want to offer ChromeBook repairs to your local schools – or you work at a school and repair the tech yourself – these OEM-equivalent repair parts are the perfect fit.

Parts for Samsung ChromeBook XE303

The Samsung ChromeBook Series 3 (Model XE303C12) was released in 2012 and received excellent reviews for being a simple, easy-to-use laptop designed as “a cheap, portable way to get online, with nothing getting in the way.”

This laptop was designed to be durable, but as with most laptops and electronics, its LCD is the most commonly replaced part. You can find the replacement LCD for Samsung ChromeBook XE303 on our website, along with the tools you need to fix it – a heatgun, a simple #0 Phillips screwdriver and a pry tool like the iSesamo should do the trick. If the screen bezel gets damaged during repair, we have the LCD screen bezel to replace it.

If you need housing units, batteries, keyboards, AC adapters or LCD cables we have what you need! Find quality compatible replacement parts for Samsung ChromeBook XE303 on eTechParts.com.

 

 

Parts for Lenovo ChromeBook X131e

The Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook X131e was released in 2012 as a rugged laptop built to withstand the everyday school adventures, busy work schedules and on-the-go travels of today’s modern life.

This laptop was also designed with durability in mind, but luckily the LCD screen is easy to find – you can use the same one as the Samsung ChromeBook XE303. We have the screen bezel compatible with the Lenovo Thinkpad, as well as the replacement keyboard, housing units, 20V AC charger and more.

You’ll need the same tools to fix the LCD on this laptop – a #0 Philips screwdriver, heating element and pry tool. If the iSesamo doesn’t do the trick, check out our favorite pry tool for iPads. This 1″ putty knife can really come in handy when replacing LCDs. Find high-quality compatible parts for Lenovo ChromeBook X131e on our website.

 

 

Parts for Dell ChromeBook 11

The 11-inch Dell ChromeBook 11 was released in February 2015 as a great option for students (and lab students in particular) who need an ultraportable, weatherproof, easy-to-use laptop . The reviews of the 2015 Dell ChromeBook 11 have been phenomenal so far, with some critics believing this Dell could easily become the top performing laptop of its kind.

Find quality repair parts for Dell ChromeBook 11 at eTech Parts.

Considering the Dell ChromeBook’s rugged design and recent release, repairs might not start rolling in for a few more months. Prepare your shop and get ahead of the game by reaching out to schools near you to see what devices they’re using to teach students. Whether they deploy iPads, MacBooks, or the new Dell ChromeBook 11, eTech Parts has the parts and tools you need to offer your community an affordable repair solution.

The End is Nigh..

For the Chinese Spring Festival, that is! Demand is high and supplies are low as Chinese New Year 2015 quickly comes to an end. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year in true eTech Parts fashion – with over 100 yellow boxes arriving for our final shipment from China.

We have wholesale repair parts for iPhones, iPads, iPods, and the most popular cell phone parts in stock and available for same-day shipping. We made sure to keep heavy stock on parts for the most popular repairs, such as screens for the iPhone 5c.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, give us a call at 913-839-1718 and one of our friendly customer support reps will be happy to assist you.

 

We wish you luck, but so far it seems to be faring well for most. How’s your CNY going? Was this your first time preparing for the Spring Festival shut-down? Or are you a seasoned expert at stocking up for the new year? We want to hear what you think, so share your experience in the COMMENTS below!

How Much Does Your Phone Really Cost?

If you own and operate a cell phone repair shop, we’re sure you’re familiar with the phrase, “You want how much to fix my phone? But I only paid $199 for it!!”

 

Many consumers are unaware the true value of a smartphone is more than the rate provided with a subsidized contract. What seems to be a great deal at first – $199 for a new phone on a 2-year contract – actually costs more over time and greatly skews the perceived value. This in turn cheapens the perceived value of repairs, which leads to consumers feeling less motivated to choose repair.

Lowering the perceived value of smartphones will continue to impact wireless repair shops, unless we educate consumers on the true value of their devices. To help repair shop owners educate repair customers, our team at eTech Parts researched devices and subsidized contracts to create the following infographic for the Repair Community.

 

Post it on Facebook, Tweet about it, and share with customers and friends to help spread the word. Let’s work together to debunk this myth and promote consumer awareness. Because $199 is just a down payment – not the full price you pay.
