Daystar announces G4 upgrades for PowerBook G3s
September 30, 2003 - 07:16 EDT Daystar Technology today announced that it has expanded its system upgrade offerings to include the PowerBook G3 2000 series, also known as the "Pismo" PowerBook, or the PowerBook G3 FireWire. The new upgrade provides G4 performance for the last generation of the black PowerBooks, and features a low-power design that extends battery life and runs cooler than competitive offerings, says the company. The MAChSpeed G4 Pismo is factory installed and tested by Daystar in a 24 hour turnaround program. In addition, Daystar adds speed to the installation process with its "Week-ender" installation program, providing 12 hour turnaround. The Week-ender program allows users to achieve near-zero downtime by sending their PowerBook in on Thursday evening, then receiving the upgraded system on Monday. Options and pricing are available in the press release.
