Sonnet Offers Special Price On Upgrade/Older DIMM Module Combos

Sonnet Technology has announced a new special for those looking to upgrade older Macs. The new program allows those that purchase any Crescendo/7200 or Crescendo/PCI upgrade to purchase 64MB RAM modules for US$64. While expensive compared to current RAM standards, memory modules for older machines are often far more expensive. According to Sonnet:

Sonnet Technologies announces a "64MB for $64" DIMM program, a special RAM offering with the purchase of any Sonnet Crescendo/7200 or Crescendo/PCI upgrade. For a limited time, every customer who purchases one of these popular upgrades qualifies for the purchase of up to four of the 64MB DIMM units for $64 each. ?Sonnet knows that once customers buy our upgrade cards, their next step is often to opt for more memory,? commented Robert Farnsworth, Sonnet president and CEO. "Since DIMMs on these older systems can cost as much as some CPU upgrades, we wanted to find a way to make them more affordable." Sonnetis recent introduction of an OS X installer for older PCI machines will further increase this need, as 128MB is recommended for the new systemis optimal use.

The specifications of the DIMMs offered in this promotion are: 64MB (8 x 64); 60ns; 5 volt; 4K Refresh; 168-pin; Fast Page Mode (FPM). The memory is new using refurbished components, and is compatible with Crescendo/7200 DIMM sockets; motherboard DIMM sockets on the Power Macintosh 7200, 7500, 7600, 8500, 8600, 9500, 9600; and other models with identical memory requirements. Every DIMM is thoroughly tested and inspected, and comes with Sonnetis standard three-year warranty.

Eligible customers must submit a completed form found at, along with the UPC code from the eligible Sonnet product package and a copy of the receipt showing the date of purchase. This offer is valid only in the USA and Canada and is good on any Crescendo/7200 or Crescendo/PCI purchased from June 1 through August 31, 2001. Orders must be submitted by mail, and received at Sonnet by September 30, 2001.
