All four iMac models are in stock at Connecting Point.

Miraculously, if you came into either of Connecting Point’s store locations for one of the new iMacs, you’d walk out the door with one right now. As in, immediately.

We’ve got plentiful stock of all four main models, ready for a good home. (Or office.) The product is identical, the price is the same. And the service and support you get from Connecting Point is not only excellent, it’s also free…and for life. So give in to that very human need for instant gratification: Get a new iMac, instantly, from your local Apple Specialist, Connecting Point Computer Centers.

UPDATE 02.20.13 | 12:30 PM: Well, that happened fast. Our Bend store now has only the $1299.99 model 21.5-inch iMac and the $1799.99 27-inch iMac in stock. We are expecting shipments of the other two models to be arriving shortly.

UPDATE 03.03.13 | 12:55 PM: Looks like Apple’s online store is finally catching up with iMac demand. Both sizes appear to be shipping within one to three days. But if we may again point out the obvious: the price is the same, the tech support is for life – and you can have it right here, right now by getting your new iMac from the friendly folks at Connecting Point.

Connecting Point now offers SafeBox Automated Online Backup service

SafeBox automatic online computer backupSimple, automatic, and unlimited offsite backup of your critical data – for less than seven dollars a month.

A good backup strategy is an important part of the whole computer ownership experience. But most backup methods are flawed in important ways. They’re too complicated, too expensive, too time consuming – to the point where many computer owners end up not following through. Their data is at risk.

SafeBox Automated Online Backup changes all that. For just $79.99 a year, your data is securely sent over the Internet to redundant remote servers – and it all happens in the background, with no intervention needed on your part. So even if your computer is stolen or destroyed, your information – documents, photos, videos, financial data, games, apps, songs – is safe and sound. There’s no equipment to buy, no media to manage, no procedures to follow. Set it, and forget it.

We can set up SafeBox on your PC or Mac in about 15 minutes. Find out the full story here.
