Mar 21, 2006 | Woodstock, IL


Coinciding with Steve Jobs' announcement of Apple's release of the Intel-based Mac mini computer, leading technology solutions provider Other World Computing (OWC) and peripherals expert Newer Technology Inc. (NewerTech) today announce new lower prices on the NewerTech miniStack V2 external storage solution and FireWire and USB 2.0 port expander.

Named "Top Product" by Macworld magazine, "Editor's Choice" by MacAddict magazine, and "Accessory of the Year" by 123Macmini, the NewerTech miniStack features up to 500 gigabytes (GB) of high speed bootable storage; integrated, powered FireWire and USB 2.0 hubs; intelligent thermal monitoring; and auto power convenience with manual engagement option.

The revolutionary miniStack V2 works with any Mac, PC, or Linux computer with an available FireWire or USB port, best of all it is perfectly matched to the exact footprint, aesthetic design engineering, and color configuration of the Mac mini and Intel-based Mac mini.

"The Mac mini and the new Intel Mac mini are fantastic and like any great bargain, to keep prices low the computer can be dramatically upgraded with additional hard drive storage capacity and FireWire and USB ports with an external solution. The miniStack from NewerTech is the ideal compliment to the Mac mini or any computer system needing a reliable, affordable, quality storage solution upgrade," said NewerTech president Larry O'Connor.
