[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - ActiveTrak Inc. has announced that its award-winning GadgetTrak Laptop 3 is now being bundled with warranty plans, including AppleCare at select Apple retailers. This arrangement increases the level of protection by not only covering physical problems with the laptop, but also helping recover it if it's lost or stolen.
"iCare is a product we launched last November to package all the services that people were asking for into one package at one great price," said Erick Laabs, Vice President of Retail for The Mac Store. "This November we added GadgetTrak to that bundle as well. This is a service our Customers keep asking for, and with its inclusion into our iCare bundle people have been more excited than ever to get it."
GadgetTrak is also included with an extended warranty service sold internationally by Computer Warranty Services and as a bundle with Apple's AppleCare when purchased from MacForce, a Portland-based Apple retailer.
"Warranties are a natural bundle option with GadgetTrak," said Ken Westin, ActiveTrak founder and CEO. "We're excited to work with our new partners on bringing a total solution for laptop reliability and recovery."
