 Package Systems Provide Users with Increased Power and Performance

WOODBURY, MN, January 28, 2005—Small Tree Communications, an industry leader in providing unique, state-of-the-art enterprise networking solutions for Mac OS X, recently introduced the built-to-order Ultimate Mac Package Systems to help meet the demands of those who depend on higher power and performance from their computer systems. An Apple Value Added Reseller, Small Tree has taken high performance components and integrated them into enhanced Macintosh computers, to provide customers with a high performance Mac solution, without the concerns of having to assemble it on their own.

One example of Small Tree’s built-to-order package systems is the “1 TB Server System,” which includes: a dual 2 GHz Power Mac G5; 2 GB RAM; 1 TB internal disk; dual port gigabit Ethernet NIC; and Small Tree Communication’s 802.3ad Link Aggregation SW, for bonding or aggregating multiple Ethernet ports into one virtual interface (also known as trunking). Small Tree is offering this system for $3,999, representing a savings of $500 to the consumer.

For the user with a greater demand for high performance computing, Small Tree offers the “2 TB DV Editing Dream System.” Available for $11,499, this system includes: dual 2.5 GHz Power Mac G5; 8 GB RAM; 2 TB internal disk; 23” Apple Display; Final Cut Pro HD; Motion; DVD Studio Pro; dual port gigabit Ethernet NIC; and the 802.3ad Link Aggregation SW. With this system from Small Tree, customers can save up to $2100.

“Improvements in performance can be made in systems large and small, such as a multi-suite post-production facility editing upcoming motion picture releases, or the sole editor working on a local television commercial from his home studio,” stated Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree Communications. “If you have a need for a faster functioning Mac computer, one of our Ultimate Mac Package Systems might be the perfect solution.”

In addition to the above systems, consumers can customize their Ultimate Mac System. Options include: adding RAM up to 8 GB; adding disk up to 2 TB; adding Ethernet ports; adding software for Xsan, Shake, Logic, Keynote, etc.; upgrading to fiber optic Ethernet; and upgrading to dual displays or a 30” display. Price varies depending upon options added.
