It’s finally November, and you know what that means. One extremely delicious day is the only thing on people’s minds: OWC Garage Sale day! OK…OK. Thanksgiving Day might be on your mind, too. But luckily, you can take advantage of both.
We’ve got a wide variety of products that are ready to move, and we have no doubt that we have something that’s perfect for you. So don’t leave any of these deals on the table, like you do with that jellied cranberry sauce (really… if that stuff was any good, people would eat it more than once a year).
Enjoy this month’s feast of deals!
As always, items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities, so you’ll want to act quickly. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.

Memories are precious, so you want to keep them safe. That’s why you store photos in albums, keep old toys, and put that ceramic unicorn from your Great Aunt Beatrice on the top shelf so it’ll be safe from being knocked over by the kids (…or because you don’t have the heart to throw that hideous thing in the garbage, but at least this way it’s not at eye level).
Here at OWC, we want to keep our memory safe, too (albeit a different kind of memory), so we use packaging to ensure the safe shipment of our products to the customers who are waiting to love and care for them. But about four years ago, we began looking into a way to make this packaging not only protective but also “greener.”
Last month, we discussed OWC’s development of greener packaging for our hard drives. But in typical OWC fashion, we didn’t stop at just hard drives! We wanted reduce the amount of Polyurethane ESD Foam we used to cushion memory and small part orders as well. ESD Foam is the typical pink foam found in the packaging of many electronic devices. We first investigated alternatives such as Bio-Foam, but at that time it only promised a slight reduction in petroleum based oils used in the foam. So we continued our quest until we eventually found a solution – Green Cell Foam. Article Continues…
Fall is a time of great change. Trees changing their colors. The changing of the weather. Kids changing into Halloween costumes and using thinly-veiled threats of tricks just to get their tiny hands on a few treats!
Ahem… Anyway, through all of this change brought on by the new season, there’s one constant you can count on: OWC’s fantastic Garage Sale deals!
Here are just a few of the highlights of what we have in store this month:
Other World Computing announced the immediate availability of the OWC Memory Upgrade Kits from 8GB to 32GB for 2013 iMac 27” models that became available today. OWC’s kits offer memory configurations not offered by the factory as well as savings of more than $240 compared to same-size factory options. Like all OWC Memory Upgrade Kits, a ‘how-to’ install video and OWC Lifetime warranty are included.
What it does: upgrading the memory of this iMac gives you more options, better performance and it’s a low-cost improvement that gives Apple’s latest OSX—including the upcoming Mavericks release—the space it needs for maximum performance. For hundreds less than what Apple charges, users can select an OWC upgrade to unlock the machine’s true potential. Installation takes just a few minutes, and OWCs iMac Memory Upgrade Guide makes it easy to select the right memory for any Apple iMac model. Article Continues…
Last week OWC Larry posed the query – Why Wait For The New Mac Pro? and he touched a bit on the myriad of performance upgrades that are available.
But why should you upgrade aging technology rather than saving up for the new shiny toy? Simple – It just makes good financial sense to buy the current units and upgrade (or even less just to upgrade your existing 2009-2010 Mac Pro). Pricing has yet to be announced on the new Mac Pro, but I tend to agree with many of the experts out there on this one – the entry level price is probably going to exceed the $2,500 entry-level price tag that Mac Pro owners have gotten used to from Apple. I’m actually expecting it to exceed the $3000 mark.
Add in the cost of adding external components for your storage as there are no internal upgrade bays for your existing data storage, and it’s a bargain to make your existing Mac Pro new again.
The fact remains that today’s Mac Pro models are still very viable workhorses in the professional computing arena. And they offer at least a few advantages over the new Mac Pro that will be released later this year – mainly in the immediate availability of upgrades including the OWC Mercury Accelsior PCIe SSD.
Simply put, an upgraded 2009 or 2010 Mac Pro is by far no slouch when it comes to computing speeds. Article Continues…
