As we recently outlined on our Blog, it’s not too late to order great gifts from OWC and get them under your Christmas tree by Monday, Dec. 24. In fact, 2nd day air delivery still makes the cut for orders placed as late as Thursday. And if you order an in-stock item by Friday or even early enough Saturday with overnight shipping, you still can get your order by Christmas Eve.

You know it’s happened to you. Your laptop starts acting up and you need to send it in, but you got rid of the original box years ago. Perhaps you got it as a hand-me-down or off of Craigslist and never had the box in the first place. So what are you going to do?
Sure, you could go and get a box from the post office and fill it with styrofoam peanuts or bubble wrap, but when it comes down to it, the protection you get with that is “okay” at best.
Well, we have a solution for you: the OWC Universal Laptop Carton. With all the upgrade services, refurb units, and general repair of laptops over the years, we’ve learned a few things about the best way to pack a laptop for shipping. We’ve taken that info and put together a shipping carton specifically designed for the transport of laptops.
A durable singlewall corrugated box (capable of withstanding the Edge Crush Test up to 44lbs/in) to protects against the rigors of transit. Next, three layers of foam cushion your laptop during transit, and can be custom sized to fit both the computer and any accessories you may have. Finally, a heavy duty plastic sleeve is there to protect against any remaining environmental hazards that may have made their way through.
Nobody likes having to ship their laptop somewhere, but with the OWC Universal Laptop Carton, at least you can be sure it’s protected while it travels.
