This week's news from the channel includes a new Web site for Compu b, abundant iPods at KRCS, and broadband offers from MacAce.
Compu b’s Web site revamp
Irish Apple dealership, Compu b, has announced the launch of its redesigned Web site, www.compub.com.
Managing director Denis O'Connell said: "Our new Web site has been designed to be very easy to navigate. We are particularly proud of how quick it is to drill down to specific information."
The Web site features Compu b's Trade In Trade Up deal in which customers can upgrade their old G4 to a brand new G5 for £999, and special offers on Apple's clearance stock, including iPod accessories for £7.
Web site design was by Limerick based Elive, which specializes in developing eCommerce and eBusiness solutions.
KRCS iPod boost
iPod stocks are arriving at KRCS.
Marketing manager Keren Gilfoyle McGroarty said: "We have significant stocks of the 10GB, 20GB and 40GB at the moment, but we expect customer demand to be high so supplies will sell out fast."
iPods can be purchased from any of KRCS's high-street Apple Centres in Birmingham, Leeds and Nottingham, or by calling 0845 60 11 118.
MacAce home-broadband rollout
Mac-only ISP MacAce has launched a range of high-speed home-user packages up to 2Mbs.
The packages include a 500k [email protected] ADSL500 service, costing £27.99 per month, the [email protected] ADSL1000 package with 1mb down and 256k up at £34.99 a month, and the [email protected] ADSL2000 2mb down and 256k up product, costing £44.99 per month.
Managing Director Gary Hall, founder of MacAce.net, said: “ADSL and broadband is a utility no business can do without nowadays, and is a tool for educating and entertaining families. Our AlwaysOn packages do just that in providing high speed, reliable, always-on connection.”
MacAce has also announced price cuts of up to 40 per cent on its business packages and is offering free setup of these services until the end of October.
Hall said: “With a much higher focus on Mac-specific support and vertical services available to businesses – such as network integration, VPN, security and Mac consultancy – MacAce offers Mac-based businesses a total-service they can find nowhere else.”
