About Us

In 1980, the forerunner of the MacCafé, Abacus II, first opened it's doors. While the Macintosh did not exist at the time, Abacus II was authorized as an Apple Reseller. By the time of the Macintosh introduction in 1984, Abacus II was the leading reseller of Apple products in N.W. Ohio.

Over the next two decades, Abacus II opened, closed and moved several retail locations and business-to-business sales offices in Ohio finally settling at the Sylvania building that housed all divisions. Over that time period, the company had become authorized to sell and service a wide spectrum of major brands in addition to Apple. The focus had also changed to small to medium businesses as the core customer.

Early in the new century, it became apparent that to best service the Mac community, we would have to create a separate business unit specializing in Apple products. In 2002 the new MacCafé began operation as an Apple Specialist. Our beginnings were humble, with only a one person sales staff and 600 sq. ft of retail storefront. Since then, we have grown in staff, space and most significantly, with the addition of the service department.

In October 2007, we moved to our present location at 4405 Talmadge Rd. With this move we were able to create a better experience for our customers with a bigger showroom and a more spacious service area.

8/17/2017: The Fastest Ways to Switch Between Virtual Screens on Your Mac
When you click the green zoom button in a window on your Mac, that puts the window into full-screen mode. It’s a great way to maximize screen real estate on a smaller MacBook screen, for instance, but how can you switch between these virtual screens quickly? You could swipe up on the trackpad with four fingers and then click the icon representing the desired screen in Mission Control, but that’s pokey. Instead, swipe left or right with four fingers to hop between screens. Don’t have (or like using) a trackpad? You can keep your fingers on the keyboard by pressing Control-Left arrow or Control-Right arrow.
