Protect Your Mac Book

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Laptop cases are essential for anyone who totes their computer around. They can look utilitarian, whimsical, even like a backpack. What’s the most important feature of a laptop case? Computer protection. The second most important feature? Its looks.

Mac Books are very light and delicate. They need sturdy protection. 12 South has come up with a “novel” interpretation on a traditional concept. The BookBook is a laptop case, made for Mac Books and Mac Book Pros.

BookBook is a unique case that looks like an old book. It has an ultra soft interior and rigid leather exterior for extra protection. The spine of the BookBook is extra sturdy to keep your fragile Mac even safer than with a traditional case.

The BookBook is hand crafted; no two are alike. Touted by 12 South as a vintage work of art, it’s more than a cool way to keep your Mac safe; it’s also a clever disguise. You can leave it on the shelf of your home and no one would ever know it’s not a book.

Visit the Apple Boutique and speak with an Apple Product Professional for more information on the BookBook or any Apple-related question.

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.
