Saw the interest in the Sam's box so I thought you might like to see the newest Mac box.

Thanks, I hear that it is a really cool looking box. I have one on order and will pick it up this Friday. If I get a chance I'll post a pic of the real thing this weekend.

MACDAD,

I heard they were coming out with that box. Looks good. Can't wait to see one in person. I'm REALLY surprised at the price....expected it to be a lot more than that. Not bad.

Are you going to stay with Mac? You had mentioned getting out not to long ago.

Buck

Buck, Yes, it is a good price. It is a Tech Series box, that is why. If it was a Macsimizer it would be about 50% more. If these thing sell like I think they will, they might expand into other models. Stainless seems to be the "in" thing right now.

No, I am not quitting Mac. I was asking about franchises because my wife may or may not lose her job in the spring. She needs to work to support my boat habit!

Open72, Everyone except mechanics are shocked when they hear the price of our boxes and tools. It is just like a non-boater that thinks anyone with a boat has to be rich or win the lottery to own one.

I have seen the Sam's box. It is really quite impressive fro the price. They look like a good buy for the DIY'er. Better than Sears. For most professionals though, they are not big enough and are not built strong enough to take the wear and tear they get when used day in and day out.
