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.
