Trade-in, trade-up with Gazelle

CranstonIT is pleased to announce its affiliation with Gazelle, the nation’s leading marketplace for the sale or purchase of pre-owned consumer electronics.

“Gazelle has built its reputation as a super-fast, efficient and safe way for people to get cash back for their used iPhone® or other device,” said Patrick Cranston, President of CranstonIT. “We are proud to affiliated with such an iconic name in our industry.”

Gazelle has helped pioneer the eCommerce category, and is recognized by an A+ Better Business Bureau rating and a 9.5/10 Reseller Ratings review average.

Since 2008, Gazelle has paid out more than $200 million for unwanted technology, while helping consumers upgrade at the same time. Gazelle has purchased and resold more than two million devices — such as iPhone, iPad®, MacBook® and other used high-end devices — and enabled discount opportunities for consumers who otherwise could not afford new technology.

Essentially, Gazelle rewards people for approaching consumption in a smart, environmentally responsible way. Rather than discard a device you no longer value or use, Gazelle provides original owners with an opportunity to exchange it for cash and then put that cash towards a certified pre-owned device.

If you are interested in seeing what your device is worth — or in buying a certified pre-owned device — you now have two ways to begin that process. You can either visit OR contact CranstonIT at 888-813-5558 or If you choose the latter, a CranstonIT representative will facilitate the entire process for you. Either way, your device will be quickly evaluated and you’ll have a cash-back quote good for 30 days. Ask us for more details.

The New Slim iMac

We are happy to welcome the newest addition to the Apple family.  The new iMac has arrived and it comes with some impressive new features.

What you’ll first notice about this sleek new model is its size.  It’s almost a full inch slimmer and up to eight pounds lighter than any other iMac.  Apple also re-engineered the display.  The result is up to 75% less glare, a sharper screen image, and more vibrant colors.

It may be slim, but it’s also a powerhouse.  It comes with the latest OS X Mountain Lion operating system and impressive performance technology.  It’s extremely fast thanks to Core i5 or i7 processors and the latest Nvidia graphics processing.  It also comes with up to 3TB of storage and a Fusion Drive option that adds 128GB of flash storage to the hard drive.  The iMac dynamically manages the memory, shifting less used programs to the hard drive, reserving the faster flash memory for the most often used apps.  The result?  Faster day-to-day performance.
