Text: This is the first of new column series. The Sequoia Mac Users Group gets quite a few mailings notifying us of special offers. Some of these offers are posted on the BBS, but I would like to make the information available to those who do not telecommunicate. Notes to Members: If you would like more information or order forms on products listed, please Contact me for more information on any of the following via e-mail or at 442-3520 or call the number given for the company that makes the product. Whenever you call and ask for information, or order a product, specify that you are a Sequoia Macintosh User Group Member. SMUG does not endorse or benefit from the following. Every month the Apple Users Group Connection sends us a list of discounted Apple Macintosh products available to MUG members. The offer is good for one calendar month only. This month the products listed are: LaserWriter IIF (2MB) - PostScript printer for $816.00, Personal LaserWriter LS Printer for $399.00 StyleWriter 1 with ink cartridge for $200.00 The User Group Connection also sent us a notice regarding their new "Beta Test Club." If SMUG members fill out and return a registration form they will be added to a database which will be sent to software/hardware companies. The UGC Beta Test Club may become the primary source of beta testers for developers, giving User Groups more influence in the development of new products! All experience levels, from novice to expert, and all hardware configurations are considered for beta testing.
