Daystar iMac Flat Panel CPU Upgrades,
Now Starting at $449...
Daystar passes lower costs on to endusers.
iMac CPU upgrades now under $500!.

Atlanta, Georgia - October 17, 2005: Citing new lower shipping and CPU costs Daystar Technology, an Apple Authorized Reseller and Mac Solutions Integrator, announced today, that it is cutting the iMac Flat Panel Upgrade pricing.

The upgrades utilize the most powerful G4 CPUs available today. In additional to nearly double the CPU cycles, the upgrades also double the high-performance L2 cache size from 256 KB to 512 KB. The net result... more than 2x real-world performance for all iMac Flat Panel owners.

Better shipping and CPU costs, become lower user prices.
Daystar has moved it's shipping exclusively to FedEx, which has generated lower pricing on shipping. New distribution agreements have also lowered the costs of the "upper-end" Freescale CPUs used for their iMac upgrades. Daystar is passing the savings onto the customers. The result being lower prices, all around.

"We are amazed at the number of orders!", said Gary Dailey, president of Daystar. "The rate of acceptance has allowed us deliver even lower pricing, and drop below the $500 price barrier."

3-way shipping options, for maximum flexibility.
Customer can now choose from a range of shipping options. The 3-way choices (preship box, unit to Daystar, then unit to customer), allow the customer to tailor the speed and cost of their upgrade.

The Cost of the upgrade is dependent on the speed:

  • 1.35 GHZ (7457) for the iMac 700 / 800 MHz is $ 449
  • 1.92 GHZ (7447A) for the iMac 1.0 / 1.25 GHz is $ 499
