Head back to school with the right gear from Connecting Point

It’s that time of year again. As days grow shorter and the calendar creeps ever closer to summer’s end, it’s time to think about heading back to school. And you can’t head back empty-handed, now, can you? You’ve got to gear up as if for battle. And Connecting Point has the right gear to win that battle…

  • A new MacBook. Apple’s MacBook offers the ideal balance of an effortless slim-and-light form factor coupled with the power to get things done. With new seventh-generation Intel Core processors, 12-inch Retina display,1 a full-size keyboard, force-sensing trackpad, versatile USB-C port, and all-day battery life,2 MacBook features big thinking in an impossibly compact form.
    It even comes in your choice of four stunning colors. Prices start at $1299.
  • Apple TV. Apps are now how you watch your favorite movies, shows, sports, and more. And it all starts with Apple TV. With the App Store on Apple TV, you can play big, exciting games on your big screen. You’ll also find apps that turn your living room into a fitness studio, a classroom, or a shopping destination. Add in the latest tvOS features and the Siri Remote, and there’s never been a better time to be a TV. From $149.
  • A new iPad. Four different sizes. Four different sets of capabilities. And four different price points, now starting at a super-affordable $329.
  • A new Windows laptop. Connecting Point carries the best and brightest in Windows portability, from industry heavyweights like Dell, HP, and Lenovo. And prices start as low as $300.
  • A new Beats audio solution. Like BeatsX, for example: the perfect wireless companion for your everyday life. With up to eight hours of battery life, you’ll experience authentic sound all day. With Fast Fuel, just five minutes of charging delivers over two hours of playback. The Apple W1 chip delivers easy pairing with your Apple devices and unique features like Siri integration. And the unique Flex-Form cable provides easy pocket portability, the included eartips provide comfort, and the secure-fit wingtips offer further stability. Shop the entire Beats line in our convenient online eStore, and have them shipped to your door or to our store.

SEMINAR: Get in touch with MacBook Pro with Touch Bar | June 1st, 5:30pm

seminar free MacBook Pro Touch Bar hands-on demonstration Connecting Point Medford ORCome and find out what all the fuss is about.

REGISTER NOW

Over in the Windows camp, laptops with touchscreens are commonplace. In fact, from Windows 8 onward, Microsoft has optimized its operating systems to work best with a touchscreen display. But there are disadvantages to this approach. Take a quick look at the screen of your smartphone. If you’re like most of us, it’s constantly getting smudged, smeared, or scratched. So Apple went another way: MacBook Pro with Touch Bar offers all the cool things you enjoy about touch interactivity with your devices (including the ultra-cool Touch ID), and removes virtually all the disadvantages.

But don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself on Thursday, June 1st. This is something you need to see in person, and try for yourself, to fully appreciate. So after a breezy, informal presentation, we’ll personally guide you through this latest, greatest MacBook Pro family. Better still: Every attendee will get coupons for discounts on any new Mac, and they’ll be valid through June 20th.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Differences between 13- and 15-inch models
  • Much larger Force Touch trackpad
  • Improved keyboard response and reliability
  • The Touch Bar
  • Using Touch ID on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
  • Incredible connectivity capabilities
  • Apps that use Touch Bar
  • Configurations and pricing, including custom-built options
  • Question and answer period
  • Hands-on sessions with the assistance of our experts
