[12: 15 PM] XLR8 Rolls Out Trade-in/Upgrade Special Promotion

XLR8 is offering a special deal for those Observer interested in upgrading their system. XLR8 is offering new buyers of their G3 upgrade a special price on future G4 upgrades. According to XLR8:

Today, XLR8 announced its new Fall Into G4 promotion. This promotion allows users to purchase their MACh Carrier G3 upgradeable upgrade immediately (Fall '99), then upgrade to G4 for as little as $500 in January when new software and better revisions of the G4 CPU are expected. The initial upgrade purchase plus the cost of a G4 upgrade in January is less than the current price of a G4 upgrade alone.

For more information on the promotion and the XLR8 product catalog, please visit their web site. The site utilizes frames so we can not link directly to the Fall Into G4 page.

The Mac Observer Spin: This is an interesting new development in the competitive G3/G4 upgrade market. Confusion and saturation among consumers may also be taking its toll on sales. We hope this isn't the case as the upgrade market offers many Mac owners choices they can't get from Apple. In any event, it will be interesting to see how some of the other companies respond to this, if they do.
