It’s a funny thing about these price drops; they always seem to come in bunches. This time around is no different. First, there were the Mercury Elites. Then came the Mercury Elite Pro minis, followed by the Qx2.
Well, this time around, we’re featuring the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini. However, don’t expect the same, old-fashioned price drop. No sir-ee. We’ve got something special goin’ on here; not only are we featuring a price drop, but we’re adding new models as well.
