4 Different Ways to Host a Mac mini
To ship your Mac in for colocation, simply order the service without selecting a purchase option. We’ll email setup instructions and shipping directions. No need to ship the power cable or any adapters, but we recommend using the packaging. We’ll store it and return it with the Mac when it is eventually shipped back to you.
Get online faster by purchasing a NEW Mac mini or Mac Studio from us. We’ll configure it as needed and you’ll be online as soon as we receive your Mac direct from Apple. We’ll also store the original packaging and contents along with any original parts if any upgrades are ordered. When it’s time to ship the Mac to you, we’ll box it up using the original packaging.
Rent 2 Own (Mac mini)
Rent a NEW Mac mini from us and we’ll put your payments towards ownership of the Mac mini. We split the retail cost up into 12 monthly payments. After the 12th payment it is just as if you purchased it from us on day one. All the same warranty and parts / packaging details are the same as purchasing a Mac mini outright.
Rent a Dedicated Mac from us and you will never have to worry about hardware issues again. By renting a Dedicated Mac mini, Studio, or 2013 Mac Pro from us you get all of the benefits of hosting a Mac in the datacenter without the headaches of having to pay for costly hardware replacements.
