OWC Can Help ‘Old’ Mac Pro Compete With 2013 Model

Friday, March 7th, 2014 | Author:

prod_applemacpro2010If you love Macs, it’s almost impossible to look at the 2013 Mac Pro without dropping your jaw, drooling a little, and thinking, “Want. Want so badly.” And that’s understandable. It’s a powerful machine with a sleek new design that’s perfect for professionals across the creative spectrum.

But the thing is, it’s not like creative professionals just started using Mac Pros in 2013. And if you dropped top dollar on a Mac Pro anytime in the past few years, the idea of investing several thousand more dollars in the latest model might not seem that attractive to you.

Lets take a look at some of the options OWC has to help make your older Mac Pro the powerful machine you need to express your creativity. Article Continues…

LarrysDeskWarranty expiration dates always seem to have a way of sneaking up on us.

And recently, I found myself up against the warranty clock with my MacBook Pro. The machine was having an issue with the Retina screen. Several pesky pixels were “stuck on” displaying white dots where they weren’t supposed to.

It was admittedly a minor issue, but the Retina displays are expensive, and I definitely wanted to make sure it was taken care of under warranty.

But as it wasn’t a major issue for daily use, I put off dealing with it. And then suddenly it was do-or-die time with the warranty – and the date just happened to intersect fatefully with CES 2014. I could not take my MacBook in to Apple and be without it at CES, and I was short on time to borrow a Mac and get transferred over and tested. Article Continues…
