FastMac Unveils Mac Mini Uprgrade Program
Monday February 14, 2005

FastMac announces the Take-Your-Mini-to-the-Max upgrade program available for all Apple Mac mini models. Packages start at $199.95 for an 8x Dual-Layer “SuperDrive.” 1 GB of RAM and 100 GB hard drive can be added for $199.95 each. Pricing includes prepaid 3-way shipping, professional installation, free data transfer, and a 1-2 business day turnaround.

FastMac - "You love your Mac mini. It looks cool. It's small. It's powerful. It's affordable.

But maybe now you've been wishing you had added a few more extras. With FastMac's “Take-Your-Mini-to-the-Max” upgrade program for all Apple Mac mini models, you can choose from packages that start as low as $199.95. You can add an 8x Dual-Layer “SuperDrive.” 1 GB of RAM and 100 GB hard drive.

We make easy. We make it simple. Once you order, we'll ship you out a free prepaid box. All you do is pack your mini and its AC adapter and ship it back. You'll get professional installation, free data transfer, and in 1-2 business days, we send it back to you.

FastMac's 8x DVD±RW drive adds DVD authoring and dual-layer media support to the Mac mini’s standard configuration, and is two times faster than Apple’s optional "SuperDrive,” which offers no dual-layer support. FastMac’s 100 GB hard drive upgrade is the largest drive available for the mini, and adds 60 GB over Apple’s standard capacity. With the 1GB memory upgrade more programs can run simultaneously and overall performance is increased.

Whether, you got your mini the first day it was available. Or just got it yesterday, FastMac's got an affordable, fast and easy way for you to get the max out of your mini.

With our upgrades, the most affordable Mac just got even better."

Kind of a neat idea. The memory is a pretty good price the rest is just average. Note they keep the original items read the fine print.

7200RPM 60GB Drive and the 8x Dual-Layer DVD are cool but everything seems overpriced. I bought the 1.25 from the Apple store and BTO's the Hard drive up to 80GB, upgraded the memory to 512MB and got a Superdrive for $225.00. Very Happy

If you read the fine print they KEEP everything they take out (memory, hard drive, etc) so you can't help recovering your costs by selling the old parts elsewhere.

Buyer Beware!

This makes no sense unless you don't have the skills to upgrade yourself. Even then it comes at a pretty penny!
