OWC Intros Media Center Solution for 2010 Mac mini
Thursday, January 27, 2011
Posted by: Staff

Other World Computing today announced its new OWC Media Center Solution for the 2010 Mac mini to address the growing need of consumers wanting to search, navigate, consume, store/backup, and sync digital content from multiple content sources and devices with one easy to use solution. According to the company, the solution includes installing the Plex digital media management platform onto a customer's 2010 Mac mini, upgrading the mini with 4GB of OWC RAM, and bundling all the necessary hardware - including an OWC Mercury Pro Qx2 storage solution, OWC Slim portable CD/DVD/Blu-ray disc burner, Elgato EyeTV Hybrid tuner or HD DVR, and Apple Remote - to deliver a complete Plug-and-Play Mac mini based home theatre/entertainment solution.

"By creating a comprehensive, yet option rich bundle and configuration service, we eliminated all the hassle of incorporating a 2010 Mac mini into a home theatre system," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "This is the ideal solution for managing and viewing personal and public content whether it be a single user or an entire family with multiple devices."

Pricing and ordering information for the custom configured bundle for 2010 Mac mini, which will include a 48 business hours or less installation turnaround, various shipping options, and warranty coverage will be announced by the end of January.

I know a lot of us on this site are DIY types, so we will pass on something like this, but honestly this is very cool. Does OWC offer after sale software support? It seems like delivering such a solution would lead to numerous support calls (no matter how simple it is).

Great to see someone stepping up to the plate to offer such a solution. Hopefully it does well.
