Saving money on cables with Monoprice

In that article I wrote on December 1, 2012; I told you I would provide information on saving money on video adapter cables. Apple charges Beverly Hills prices for these, and you shouldn’t pay them if you live in Northridge.

The secret?


For instance, let’s look at those PS/2 to USB adapters that I mentioned in the previous post. I paid $12.99 at Fry’s, which is a heckuva lot cheaper than Staples.


But look at what Monoprice charges for them!


Let’s look at video adapters, where Apple makes a killing.

First, Apple’s prices:


$29 to $34.95! Now you see how they can charge just 19.00 for Mountain Lion. They make it up in hardware accessories.

Now let’s look at Monoprice:


Easily a quarter of the price.

So save some money.
