Tell Us Your Thoughts And Win

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 | Author:

How many times a day do you wish you could tell people exactly what you think? I mean exactly what you think. That guy who cut you off in traffic just to beat you to the next stop light. The girl at Starbucks who heard you order nonfat milk yet decided to make it with milk straight from the udder. The coworker who clips his nails at his desk. The guy popping his gum seemingly in your ear from the seat behind you on the train. The point is, saying exactly what you think is sometimes discouraged, and holding our tongues about it often saves us from being punched in the face.  But what if someone wanted to know exactly what you thought? And they wanted to know what you thought so bad that they were willing to enter you in a drawing to win a free iPad mini if you told them?  What if I told you that OWC wants to do just that?! If that excites you, read on.

OWC wants to know what you think in order to gage interest in a new, exciting, and innovative event. We are considering hosting an annual conference where Macintosh product users can network and interact with other Macintosh users, attend educational sessions on a number of different topics, and visit an exhibition all featuring the newest and coolest products in the industry today! We want to know your thoughts! So please, give us your feedback.

And in order to thank you for your feedback, you will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE iPad Mini. (Open to US residents only.) See, we take care of you. So think good thoughts about us, would ya?

An Award-Winning Presence At Macworld 2011

Monday, January 31st, 2011 | Author:

Well, another Macworld Expo has come and gone. While Apple isn’t a live presence any more, OWC has taken up the hardware torch and managed to keep things hopping with our new OWC Mercury Aura Pro solid state drives.

When it comes to upgrading your 2008-2010 MacBook Air, the only upgrade avenue you have is to replace the internal drive with something faster. OWC’s Mercury Aura Pro line of SSDs allows you to upgrade your MacBook Air’s internal drive to a super-fast, Sandforce-based SSD, which provides not only a tremendous speed boost, but also offers consistent performance over time due to the wear-leveling technology in all OWC SSDs.

But enough about the Auras themselves; we’ve had plenty to say about them already. It’s time to talk about all the love the Mac media community has given us.

Let’s start off with the big guns – the “Best of Show” awards. The OWC Mercury Aura Pro Express for 2010 MacBook Air won three of these prestigious honors:

  • One from Macworld magazine, host of the Expo, themselves.
  • One was in the form of a 2011 Mac|Life award from the magazine of the same name, who “can’t wait to get our hands on these babies.”
  • The last was from Notebooks.com, who gave us their “Best Mac Hardware Upgrade” title and  noted that “the blazing fast data transfer rates and higher capacity make the MacBook Air even better.”

And that was just the tip of the iceberg. Article Continues…
