DATEC PNG has increased its portfolio of world-class professional and personal technology by bringing Apple technology and support to the local market.
The company announced details of the Apple deal last Friday as it prepares to open its new megastore at Gordon along the Poreporena Freeway on Jan 21.
Apple products will also be available in Datec’s Lae retail outlet.
Datec will also be certified as the only Apple-authorised service centre in Papua New Guinea.
Today, Apple leads the computing industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications.
Apple is also spearheading the digital media revolution with its iPod portable music and video players.
“The range of products now available within PNG, courtesy of Datec, includes the ‘ultimate all in one’ desktop computer on the market today – Apple’s new iMac,” Datec chief executive officer Bhanu Sud said.
“The full range of MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops is now in PNG, which suits every situation ranging from home life, student life and work life.
“A range of Apple accessories will now be available in-store to complement your Apple technology.
“MS office 2008 for Mac for every occasion whether work, school or home, gives you tools that help simplify your life.”
“With Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac, you can manage projects, collaborate with others and create dynamic documents and presentations simply and easily.”
Mr Sud said Datec would be selling a whole range of iPods for young people and those who like music.
“The Shuffle, the world’s smallest and most wearable music player, comes in new colours and tells you which song is playing, through to the latest iPod Touch, with up to 64Gb of storage, for your games, movies, music and so much more,” he said.
“If you like the sound of no-fuss, no downtime, easy wireless, no viruses, everything-just-works, then welcome to the benefits of owning a Mac,” Mr Sud said.
