Trade In Program

You can now trade-in your old Mac for credit towards the purchase of a new one at the MacCafé. Your hard drive will be wiped-out and overwritten several times using DoD standards, ensuring your privacy. We can also transfer your data from the old Mac to your new computer, if needed.

Tips for the Trade
Back up your old computer
at home,
or you can apply some of your trade-in credit towards having us transfer the data onto the new computer for you. Make sure to check your backup carefully because your old computer will be securely erased after you trade it in.

Schedule a time with our appraiser before bringing your machine in. Our appraiser will test every component of your potential trade-in. If for any reason we find that your computer is not in good condition we reserve the right to reject the trade or will reduce the trade-in value accordingly.
Bring as many original accessories as possible such as the original box, power cord, original software installation disks, keyboard, mouse, etc. Having all your accessories can raise your trade-in value.

After we evaluate your old computer we will give you a final trade-in offer based on your computer's condition/accessories included. If you accept the offer, you can apply the credit towards a new computer. 


Mac Models Eligible for Trade-in Credit

Computers: All models with a Core 2 Duo processor or higher 

iPads/iPhones: Depends on the model/condition

Displays: Apple LCD Displays or other name brand LCD displays


If your Mac doesn't qualify for our trade-in program, or you have an older PC, we can still recycle your computer for FREE.

04/13/17: Use Siri or Spotlight to Open Apps You Can't Find
It’s easy to find the apps you use regularly on your iPhone or iPad, but there’s little more frustrating than needing an app you seldom launch and not being able to find it. You could scroll through all the home screens on your device and hope you recognize the icon, but here’s a faster approach. Search in Spotlight by swiping down on the home screen and entering the first few letters of the app’s name. That’s especially handy if you can’t remember exactly what the app is called. If you can remember the app’s name, another quick approach is to hold down the Home button, wait for Siri to activate, and then ask Siri to “open” the app’s name, as in “Open Runkeeper.”
