Time to give the appropriate credit to OWC!

My history with OWC’s founder, Larry O’Connor, spans two and one-half decades. My first encounter was through AOL and I was sporting the latest Apple product: an Apple llGS. This was an evolution in the Apple line where “GS” represented graphics and sound. It was truly transitional between the Apple ll and the first Mac.

Larry and I were both busy on AOL. I was one of the first online instructors, while Larry was absorbed buying and selling Apple hardware. He bought a device from me that allowed the llGS to maintain a perpetual RAM disk through an external power supply. Our dealings were always friendly, honest, and fair.

This is precisely the same philosophy Larry adhered to as he developed OWC, and he has never forgotten his fledgling roots and the diligent work necessary to start and maintain a business. Consequently, OWC has grown and developed into a thriving, successful business. Furthermore, OWC is always on the cutting edge of technology, showing a strong desire to create new products that change with the blazing changes in technology. Article Continues…

Accomplishing anything on that iBook had become a chore, and the faulty soldering job on the GPU didn’t help either. I had to bite the bullet and get a new Mac. It was time. Apple had recently transitioned from the PowerPC CPUs to Intel, Mac OS X 10.5 had just come out, and my poor little iBook just wasn’t able to cope with what Apple had coming down the way. I bid a fond farewell to my first-ever Apple purchase and stored it away somewhere.

Now, here is a very obvious statement about Macs: they’re expensive. You can either believe or disbelieve the hype about the Apple Tax, price-gouging, paying for a brand label, but any Apple product is a significant purchase in terms of cost and value. As a married man with a wife in college and one reasonably modest income, I had to aim low. I went for the bottom of the barrel MacBook. Was that a bad thing? Article Continues…
