2. Emotional connect with Laptop• Here is a fact which I would like to share. Almost a year back one gentleman of age 40 landed my service centre with one IBM Think Pad T40 Note book. It was password protected. No one can switch on laptop without knowing the password. He requested me to reset the password. I quoted him Rs.4000/- and he immediately approved the quotation• After 2- 3 days that gentleman came to my service centre and collected the laptop and paid the service charge and he was very excited with soft eyes. I asked him the matter and got a reply “this is the only memory of my brother who died in Singapore in an accident and he got back this laptop from police along with his coffin. He was unable to open it because he doesn’t know the password.• After 6 months that person returned back to my service centre and asked me to change the screen as LCD was faulty and he paid me Rs.6000. He told me that every day he switches on laptop with his brother photo on wallpaper and remembers him.• There are several other incidents where people clearly tell me they are spending on old laptop because they have got emotional attachment with this gadget. It cannot be measured in terms of money

All these gadgets normally cover one year of warranty. The main challenge for all common users even corporate is to get quality service at reasonable cost. Authorized service provider do not repair laptop on chip level and card level repair cost is always expensive There is an unorganized small service industry who try to make up this gap but because of lack of technical expertise, non availability of genuine and new components and ICs they could not meet customers expectation. More over chip level machineries and equipment cost is very high and as a result using low cost and improper machineries reduce the life of these gadgets and sometime irreparable damage. Then only one option left to the customer to buy a new laptop.• Repair And Technology Services (RATS) was born with a concept to provide laptop repair facilities for all brands and different laptop models at prices which are up to 60 per cent lower than the Authorized Service providers.
