Apple TV Father's Day gift ideas


Apple TV 32GB $149.99 | 64GB $199.99
Help Dad get his stream on, no matter what his interests: movies, TV shows, live sports, news, games. Watching or playing these through apps is where television is headed. And Apple TV® is built around that vision.1

Here’s what he’ll be able to do:

  • Use voice and touch to interact directly with the Apple TV’s immersive interface.
  • Easily search for content and launch apps. Just ask Siri® using the Siri Remote.2
  • Use the Siri Remote as a dynamic game controller, with the Touch surface acting as a virtual directional pad.
  • Effortlessly navigate through content and screens on Apple TV using the glass Touch surface on the Siri Remote.
  • Watch 1080p HD with Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound.
  • Apple TV is compatible with high-definition TVs with HDMI.3

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

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

WHEN AND WHERE

Thursday, June 1st, 2017, from 5:30 to (approx.) 6 p.m.
at Connecting Point‘s new home:
1251 E. McAndrews Rd., Suite 114
