Online retailer Other World Computing on Monday was added to Apple’s growing list of
Macintosh Products Guide. Apple started the Hot Deals Web site two years ago and boasts 20 retailers, including three from Apple itself: The Apple Store, The Apple Store for business and The Apple Store for Education.
Other World Computing
is offering several products through Apple’s Web site today including the Sonnet Crescendo/PCI G3/450MHz upgrade card, an OWC Mercury Extreme G4/800MHz upgrade card, the OWC Mercury FireWire 800 PCI adapter card, a 40GB Mercury On-the-Go FireWire portable hard drive and an 80GB On-the-Go FireWire portable hard drive.
The “Hot Deals” Web site is a place for Mac users to find special prices on hardware and software bundles from Apple’s retail partners. Apple’s online retail partners include CompUSA, MacMall, MacConnection, MacZone, J&R’s OutPost, ClubMac and the Apple Online Store. Details on each of these companies can be found at Apple’s Macintosh Product Guide Web site.
Apple’s Macintosh Products Guide is a searchable database containing thousands of Mac products. Since before the introduction of OS X in March 2001, the Products Guide has been tracking applications coming to the new operating system, in addition to those that will work with the Classic Mac OS.
