Soda That’s Good for the Environment

Friday, January 29th, 2010


Abt is constantly looking for products that are environmentally friendly. The Soda Stream is an at home soda maker. It doesn’t use disposable cans or bottles, so there is no waste with each drink you make.

Saturday, January 30 from 11am-5pm, Abt will be demonstrating Soda Stream in the Abt atrium. Come by to see how to use the Soda Stream and taste some soda. I’m going to be there to taste one of the 25 flavors, will you?

iMac and Mac Mini are Brand New Again

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009


Apple rolled out the latest versions of iMac and the Mac Mini. There are some standout features on both.

Both the 21.5” and the 27” iMacs are better, more powerful, and faster. They will also have larger LED backlit screens. The 21.5” monitor will be full HD (1080p) and the 27” will be full HD plus have 78% more pixels. iMacs also come standard with IPS technology that enables their display to perform well at all angles.

Abt will stock the Magic Mouse ($69) and the full-size wireless keyboard. The Magic Mouse is an intuitive, wireless mouse that will do more than the average computer mouse. It can scroll horizontally, vertically, and in a full 360°. Along with the scrolling capabilities, the mouse can function differently for the left or right hand, based on a setting. A chief complaint about the previous wireless keyboards was they didn’t have a numeric keyboard. Apple has listened; they made a full-size keyboard with numbers.

Apple created the latest iMac with more storage, more memory, a better graphics processor, a new CPU, and one of the 27” models has a Quad Core Processor. These upgrades give the iMac workstation qualities in a personal computer.

Along with the performance upgrades the environmental benefits of the iMacs and Mac Mini are standout. They are all free of Lead, BFR, Mercury, PVC, and arsenic-free glass.

The Mac Mini will come with a faster processor, twice as much memory, NVIDIA graphics, built-in wireless, added hard drive space, and it’s the most energy efficient desktop on the market. When idle, the Mac Mini uses only 14 watts if energy.

The Mac Mini starts at $599. The 21.5” iMac starts at $1199 and the 27” starts at $1699.
