Canadian System 7.1 Upgrade

Send Article to a Friend

Macintosh users were outraged when not only did Apple charge for System 7.1 upgrades, but also they offered upgrades in the United States only. Users in other countries had to buy the System 7.1 Personal Upgrade Kit, which retailed for $99 in the US. I've heard stories of inflated prices in other countries, with the kit costing about US$200 in France, for instance.

No good news for most non-US users, but Canadian users will be pleased to hear that they can buy the System 7.1 Update Kit for $49 direct from Apple Canada. Call Apple Canada at 800/665-2775 ext. 700 to order. Members of registered user groups in Canada can save an additional $10 until 26-Mar-92, but they must go through more ringamarole. Either procure a form from your local group, or request a from at this address:

Apparently this deal only apples to the English version of System 7.1, but a similar offer for the French version should come this month.
