Apple like to be at the cutting edge of technology and are usually well ahead of other manufacturers when it comes to introducing new components and technologies.
The downside is that the earlier these new technologies and components are incorporated into Apple computers, the more expensive they are. So most of us end up getting the mid-range or lower-range iMac or MacBook, the ones without the solid-state drive or the extra memory or the external optical drive, etc.
But within a few years these new technologies are accepted by other manufacturers and the price reduces dramatically … a good time for Apple Mac Upgrades. If you’re interested in upgrading your Mac … contact us; we have access to thousands of computer components at great prices.

Solid State Drives
These can replace a standard hard disk making your computer start up and run programs much faster. Reading and writing speeds are more than 20 times faster than a standard hard disk. And, thanks to no moving parts, they are more reliable, so you data is safer. In the last year, these have become available in larger sizes and at much more reasonable cost.

External Hard Drive
