Earlier this year Bay-area Apple Specialist ComputerWare closed its doors. The ten-store chain had long specialized in Apple computer hardware and software, but a softening economy and a poor retail market took its toll. Now, Elite Computers & Software of Cupertino, CA has announced that it has purchased the rights to the ComputerWare name, along with other trademarks and assets.
Elite Computers & Software president and CEO Thomas Armes said that ComputerWare had a valued name and a unique place within the Mac community.
"ComputerWare was especially synonymous with Apple Macintosh in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is the premier Macintosh market in the country. I'm quite sure we can put the name ComputerWare to good use in the near future," said Armes.
Elite Computers & Software is best known as the Mac dealer that sits literally right across the street from Apple's headquarters in Cupertino. The store is located at 10591 N. De Anza Blvd. Call 408.257.8000 for more details.
