Mac upgrade pioneer Newer Technology closed its doors earlier this year. That doesn’t mean that Mac users looking to upgrade their systems with Newer’s products are totally out of luck, though. Online retailer Other World Computing announced that it has secured the remaining inventory of Newer Technology products, and is
now selling them.
Newer manufactured upgrades for Power Mac G3s and G4s, and also offered processor upgrades for the iMac. Many of those products are now available for sale through Other World Computing. Other Newer-branded products include the “Bookendz” desktop connection interface for PowerBook G3s, FireWire PC cards, USB hubs, USB floppy drives, and more.
Calling Newer a “driving and innovative force” in the Mac peripherals market, OWC president and CEO Lawrence R. O’Connor said that his company is glad to have Newer’s remaining inventory to offer its customers.
Users worried about after-sales support of the Newer products may take some solace in Other World Computing’s guarantee — they’re offering a 30 day return policy and a 180 day warranty on Newer inventory.
