There will also be demonstrations and special pricing on some of the products. More info can be found at the

MUGs are good places for making new friends, finding Mac-loving buddies, increasing your technical expertise, finding solutions to technical problems, and sometimes finding a good deal on used hardware. For more info on MUGs, and to find the location of the one nearest you, go to Apple’s
