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 that can run the current operating system

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.

10/18/2017: How To Avoid Downer Stories in Apple’s “For You” News Suggestions

If the For You section of Apple’s iOS News app overwhelms you with stories that are boring, depressing, or offensive, you can clamp down on it with a new setting in iOS 11. Go to Settings > News and enable Restrict Stories in For You. From then on, most stories in For You will come only from channels you follow. That setting also removes Top Stories, Trending Stories, and Featured Stories, since they rely on publications you may not like. (To follow a publication’s channel, in the News app, tap the publication’s name at the top of a story and then tap its heart icon. Verify your selections in the Following section, accessed by tapping Following at the bottom of the main News screen. Be aware that News may still suggest unwanted topics; you can delete those in Following too.)
