In order to prepare for the upcoming holidays, we’ve temporarily marked down prices on *all* AppleCare titles. This is an excellent time to save 10% – 15% on AppleCare for your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, etc.

You can purchase AppleCare for any Mac you’ve purchased in the past year. AppleCare not only covers parts and labor for repairs on your Mac, but also provides Mac telephone support via a special toll free number.
We always recommend AppleCare for any Mac, but especially for notebook computers. Even simple notebook repairs are almost always more expensive than the cost of AppleCare.

Whenever new Macs are released, we start seeking opportunities to purchase the previous generation models. Many people don’t need (or want) to ride the cutting edge of new technology releases, and appreciate the money that can be saved by getting very slightly older gear.
Last week we were able to bring in some of the just-discontinued iMacs. Specifically, we have the:
* “$999.99 iMac 20-inch, 2.4GHz, 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, and SuperDrive with 2400XT graphics,”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/71283 and the
* “$1399.99 iMac 24-inch, 2.8GHz, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard drive with SuperDrive and 2600 Pro graphics.”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/71285
We’ve created a few bundles with these previous-generation iMacs that bring RAM up to 4GB and include AppleCare and free shipping. For example: “20-inch iMac 2.4GHz 4GB RAM, 250GB drive, SD, 2400XT, 3-year AppleCare plan and free shipping for $1249.99.”:http://www.smalldog.com/wag18918/

From now until 12/21, Drobo is offering a $50 mail-in rebate (you’ll receive a $50 Visa gift card!) on all Drobos, including two models that are preloaded with either two 1TB drives or four 1TB drives. In case you don’t know, Drobo is the remarkable, easy-to-use data storage solution that automatically protects your data with almost no setup or configuration. Drobo allows you to mix and match four 3.5″ SATA hard drives of any brand or capacity. You can hot swap drives at any time, allowing you to easily upgrade and add capacity.
Since the early autumn, I’ve been using a Drobo to back up my Time Machine hard drive, and to store media files and other important files. So far I have been very happy with it, and would recommend it to anyone with a lot of data to manage and store.
