Competitive Upgrade from Norton on TechTool Pro
MicroMat Incorporated, makers of the TechTool® Pro troubleshooting utility, today announced a competitive upgrade offer. Owners of Norton(TM) Utilities for Macintosh (NUM) may now upgrade to TechTool Pro for only $59.95 which reflects an almost $100 discount from the program's retail price of $150.

TechTool Pro, which offers features like those found in NUM (drive repair, recovery and optimization), takes Macintosh troubleshooting to the next level by offering tests for the entire computer system. The program tests RAM, modems, internet connections, system files, major components, mechanisms and many more aspects of the user's computer system. TechTool Pro recently received an Editor's Choice award from MacToday magazine for Best Maintenance and Repair Utility. In a recent comparison review conducted by MacHome Journal magazine, TechTool Pro was recommended above Norton for it's reliability and breadth of features.

The competitive upgrade is a limited time offer which will only be available between February 1, 1999 to April 30, 1999. No proof of purchase of NUM is necessary. This offer is only available directly from MicroMat and a few select distributors. Not all distributors will be participating in this promotional offer. Price is subject to change without notice. Shipping & handling not included. California residents must pay sales tax.
