Deal of the Week | Apr. 24th, 2015: 12V Socket Splitter/USB Car Charger Combo $9.99 (reg. $19.99)

3-way Car Lighter Splitter and 2-port USB Car Charger for $9.99For this week’s Deal, we’re offering a “twofer.”

In other words, two items for a single low price. And these items happen to complement each other rather nicely. First, you get a 12V car socket splitter, which expands one socket to three. Suddenly, you have three places to plug in your gadgets. Second, you get a two-port USB car charger, suitable for plugging in and charging your iPhone, iPod, GPS, or what-have-you.

We usually sell these two as a bundle for $19.99, but this week (and while supplies last) they’re on sale for a low, low $9.99. That’s half price!

NEW ARRIVAL: Apple MacBook 12-inch, now in stock at both stores…and it’s a beauty.

12-inch Apple MacBook now in stock at Connecting PointJust a hair over a half-inch thick (at its thickest point). Just a smidge over two pounds.

It can only be the all-new Apple MacBook. With its groundbreaking new ultra-slim design, razor-sharp Retina display and innovative USB-C multi-purpose port, the new MacBook is unlike any other notebook. It’s the lightest, most compact Mac notebook ever. It even comes in three different colors: Silver, Space Gray (shown) and Gold. And we’ve just gotten them in stock,* at both Connecting Point locations.

You really have to see, touch, and lift this stunning new design to appreciate it. So come down and check out the latest from Apple, at the place that knows Apple best: Connecting Point Computer Centers…For four decades, your local, independent experts.

*Not every model and color is in stock, and supplies are still constrained. Shop early for best selection.

Deal of the Week | Apr. 17th, 2015: SyncStop Safe Charging USB Adapter for $14.99 (reg. $19.99)

SyncStop Safe Charging USB Adapter, on sale at Connecting Point for $14.99And now for something completely different…

In late 2013, a small, Portland-based independent security firm called Xipiter built the first version of SyncStop (which was originally called the “USB Condom,” until cooler heads prevailed) to scratch an itch: They wanted to minimize the risks involved with charging their own mobile devices in public areas.

When they tweeted about their invention, they were immediately flooded with emails and calls – and realized they were on to something big. The first production run sold out in a matter of days, spurring them to refine (and rename) their product.

Connecting Point is proud to be the first in our area to carry SyncStop, designed and built by another locally owned, independently operated business. And we’re inspired to offer this already-affordable gadget at a 25% discount, as this week’s Deal of the Week.
