Special Computer Connection Offerings for Fall
September 8, 2004 :: Chris Horrocks, Computer Connection
The Back-To-School Computer Sale continues through this Friday,
September 10. The Back-To-School Sale offers the deepest discounts
of the year, making it a great opportunity for incoming and returning
students to get a computer for school. It's also a great opportunity
for faculty and staff to upgrade their office and home systems,
too! (After 9/10, Back-To-School Sale computers will be available
on a "while supplies last" basis.)
The Computer Connection is now taking orders for the new Apple
iMac G5. The iMac G5, with a new space-saving form factor, includes
a 17- or 20-inch widescreen display and a speedy G5 processor.
It is available in three
standard configurations. (A fourth configuration, which does
not include an optical drive, can be purchased by special order.
Contact Ray Bonikowski for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Most colors of the Apple
iPod mini are in-stock at the Computer Connection at the time of this writing.
For the first time in recent months, you can walk out of the store
with an iPod mini without having to place an order!
In response to requests for the most recent technology available
from Dell, a configuration of the new OptiPlex GX280 desktop system
is now available for order. The GX280 incorporates Intel's most
recent Pentium 4 processor and logic board chipset and includes
a 4-year warranty. you can learn more by viewing the full
