Daystar Introduces New Lower
Pricing on XLR8 Value-centered PowerPC Upgrades
Full OSX compatible G4 upgrades as low as $79 --- 500 MHz performance now under $200!

Atlanta, Georgia, March 11, 2004: Daystar Technology, the compatibility leader in Apple Macintosh based upgrades and expansion announced new lower prices for its full line of desktop PowerPC upgrades. Citing new streamlined manufacturing savings, Daystar is again passing the cost savings to customers, effective immediately.

With new lower prices from 12-25% lower, XLR8 premium brand upgrades are now priced in the range of generic alternatives. Additionally, low-speed PowerPC G4 options are now at a savings 20% less than any competitor. The new pricing is available worldwide via Daystar's online store at http://Daystar-Store.com.

"XLR8 brand products are in the sweet-spot for dedicated users... " said Gary Dailey, president of Daystar. "We allow them to move up to full OS X compatibility and AltiVec performance without over-investing in their current system. Given that the early G5 is a bad-buy until Apple starts shipping the low-heat G5, our value-centered upgrades are an easy way to bridge the wait".
