Thread: Garage Sale at OWC
08-27-2011, 10:04 AM #1Garage Sale at OWC
Thought I would let folks know that our "Mac Friends" over at OWC (macsales.com) are having a garage sale (they do this a number of times each year). Currently there are about 120 various items in the Garage Sale list.
I just purchased 12gig of ram for my 2009 Mac Pro for $70 bucks (about 50% off)...and OWC has an "old ram" rebate program where you can send them your original Apple ram or OWC purchased ram for a rebate (no other "3rd party" ram qualifies for the rebate). If I send in my six 1-gig ram sticks currently in my Mac Pro...I will get $4.00/stick = $24 bucks.
So subtract $24 for the rebate for the old ram from the $70 I paid for the 12 gig of ram...and I end up paying $46 bucks for 12 gig of ram (which normally would have cost close to $150).
Some items in OWC Garage Sale list are:
- ram for various computers
- power adapters for various Apple laptops
- Airport Extreme Base Stations
- hard drives
- various iPad & iPod accessories
- a couple older MacBooks
- etc. etc.
Just thought I would let folks know if you were looking for something. Just head over to OWC (macsales.com) and enter "Garage Sale" in the search field.
p.s. Disclaimer: OWC and Mac-Forums are not affiliated. The term "Our Mac Friends" is simply an amusing way to refer to OWC on my part.

Thanks for that, work just told me to buy a macbook, so that's a pretty good price - even when customs will add the 20% sales tax when it comes into the ukMember of the Month September 2008 & August 2012 | Found advice useful? – use the rep system

60 days should certainly be enough time to find out of anything is not functioning properly. These MacBooks can certainly use a ram upgrade...1 gig is pretty "light".
