#171: Best in Showroom | November 2013
November has something to be excited about!
Today is a big day for Apple fanatics — Apple’s latest iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina are now available! The iPad Air is thinner, lighter and faster, and the iPad mini with Retina features Apple’s incredible Retina display with a 2,048×1,536 resolution. It offers 326 pixels per inch compared to 163 in the first model.
Not only are the new line of iPads available for purchase, but new Retina MacBook Pro are in stock and new Mac Pros are on their way in December (according to Apple), And let’s not forget about Mavericks and iLife as well; Apple made a great day of announcements even better by making these FREE to most users (check your machines specifications to make sure you qualify) so feel free to upgrade away (just follow some tips below)!
My 8-year-old daughter decided early this summer she wanted an iPod touch or iPad mini, and last night she counted all of her money that she’s been saving. Sure enough, she has enough to get herself an iPad mini! This might be a bit extravagant of a purchase for an 8-year-old, but I figure if she kept on the mission this long she deserves it…and as a bonus, I don’t have to share mine anymore!
However, not everyone is able to take the time to slowly set aside money for large purchases (you know, with bills and all), so if you have your eye on the new iPad or Retina MacBook Pro, we now have special in-store financing back via GE Financial!
Throughout the next few months we will have several promotions available to allow you to give that extra special gift during the holidays (or just treat yourself to a long overdue upgrade)! I expect that we will have a very busy couple of months in our stores with all the new products Apple has just announced and the inevitable holiday rush.
Until next time, thanks for reading!
Notes on Mavericks ( A Cautionary Tale )
Mac OS 10.9, Mavericks, was released recently, and surprise: it’s free! Let’s just start downloading, amiright? Well, sort of. Here are some things to consider before updating that Mac.
Take it from someone who was a littttle too excited to get ‘er done. I ran home to get started, and I violated the golden rule, “thou shalt always back up [before upgrading].” I’ll skip some of the gory details and say that ultimately, I dodged a bullet and ended up with all of my data intact, but it wasn’t a smooth ride. The Reader’s Digest version goes like this:
Obviously, the moral here is that all users may not be so lucky(?) and with any OS installation, proceed with caution and a good backup in your proverbial quiver. With that said, I LOVE IT so far, and it’s well worth the
*I’m theorizing that the first install was thwarted by my iMac’s sleep settings — I let it go overnight.
