Do You Want a Personal Sports Bar at Home?

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

This afternoon, Abt’s own Josh D., was on WGN Midday Fix talking about how easy it is to create a sports bar in your home.

Josh explained, “There are several ways to accomplish the ultimate sports viewing experience in your home depending, on your budget. Screen sizes can vary from 19” to over 100” depending on the size of your room, you may find two sets work for you, but for the ultimate sports experience we recommend four.”

Josh goes through set up in including some information on wiring and mounting and some of the equipment that you will need.

Run Windows on a Mac with Parallels 5

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Are you hesitant to get a Mac because you are used to your PC? Parallels might be the solution for you. It is software that can help you transition from a PC to a Mac. Parallels software enables your new Mac to run any program or software made for your PC.

I spoke with Josh D., Apple Guru here at Abt; he is so excited about Parallels software.
Josh asked me, “Have you ever used Windows on a Mac? It’s surprisingly easy to run Windows Quickbooks or even Microsoft Access on a Mac.”

How easy is it? You be the judge!

Watch the video that Josh made using Parallels software, so you can see it in action. He reminded me that it’s not like Apple Boot Camp, in that Parallels actually runs Windows and a Mac simultaneously.

Josh gave me some advice about the new software too, “Select a Mac with a good amount of Ram, I recommend 4GB, but 2GB is ok too. Parallels 5 does a fantastic job porting over your old Mac; install Parallels yourself and transfer your old PC right onto the Mac.”

For more information, speak with an Abt Connect Tech or Apple Product Professional today.
