Base model M1Pros in stock for..1 x 16″ base and 1 x 16”max 64 1 TB unspoken for in stock. Monterey only just incredible 1000 nit screens. The new 14” and 16” M1 Pro and Max certainly show promise as laptop work stations in your lap but may be overkill for many. Also, complete redesigns can be problematic in the first year as we all recall from the 2016 USB-c release.  These are Monterey only. We will take trades to these if your USB-c machine has Applecare remaining or it is 2014/2015 laptop or iMac in excellent condition.

2019 27” iMacs remain the best transition machine for the future and best value for money in power machines now. Even the entry level hex core is faster than any previous generation iMac i7 and the i9 8 core rivals machines costing thousands more …..easy to expand and upgrade plus will run Mohave and no T2 Chip. We still sell many more 2019s than 2020 but there is a shift now that Big Sur gets more mature and Monterey circulates in Beta.

Magic of the 2019s. For those that want moderate power and easy backup. Combo drives with blazing fast blades to 2 TB and up to 4 TB SSDs even in the i9 8 core. Very flexible builds. All exceptional value for money but disappearing. The hexcores can be upgraded to 8 core i9.


2019 Hex core 27″ from $1990 with 16 gigs 1 TB Fusion and remaining Applecare + pretty much sold out but talk to us. These can be upgraded to i9s and can have up to 4TB SSD plus 2 TB blade internally


Dual drive versions from $2550 with 16 gig 1 TB Flash + 1 TB rotational for internal backup. Ram upgrades to 64 gig….processor upgrades to i9.  upgrade to 32 for $99

These are more powerful than any quad core i7. The same applies to the 2020 hex 8 and 10 core iMacs. We have stock.

Our recommendation is for i9 iMacs as an ideal transition machine. …particularly 2019 which run Mojave and can have both RAM and drive upgraded and no T2 chip.

24” M1 iMac with 16 1TB in stock no waiting – one left . Several 16/512 – feed back from clients has been positive

2020 M1 MacMini 8 512 with new 27 Philips $1290 – 4k 27 option as well – w Applecare+ $1377 do you need more than 8 gigs with M1 – NO! https://9to5mac.com/2020/11/18/opinion-is-the-base-macbook-air-m1-8gb-powerful-enough-for-you/

2015 Retina 4k 21.5 iMacs starting $790  if you have a KB and mouse. Available with SSD drives.These are just lovely upgrade from older iMacs with bright 4k screens, upgradeable RAM and drives. Photos and movies look incredible on this 500 nit screen. Typical desktop monitor is 300 nits. The extra brightness just makes your photos pop and movies much more intense.

For those that need earlier OSes we have a variety of machines that will run Sierra and High Sierra and even earlier in some cases. These are very powerful iMacs.27″ iMac (Late 2013) 3.5 i7 Quad 16 GB 1600MHz 4 TB Fusion GTX 780M 4GB  from $990

2014/15 Retinas and Airs in stock and selling well with the 1 and 2TB NVMe drives with 5 year warranty on the drive.Good stock ….popular 15” 2015 Retinas up to 16 gig 2 TB …good screens and batteries. Standard ports, retina screens, upgradeable drive, flexible OS…very very popular. Prices are lower now. There is a reason Apple mimicked the 2014/15 Retinas in the new 16”. If you don’t need all that horsepower but want the ports, the flexible OS and preferred keyboard….15″ starting $1290. One 2014 at $990

Top seller. 13″ Retina MacBook Pro back in stock – some 2017 Airs too impossible to keep stock …more enroute .. 8 gig 256 from $890. Not many .  We are very low on these but have faster 512s at superb pricing. These have gotten very popular lately including 15″ as well …. One of my competitors came in today and said why are you selling them so cheap?….I said ..because we can. We chase these machines all over the continent and pass the savings along and of course …despite growing acceptance of the newer models….these remain very popular due to standard ports and drives easily upgraded to NVMe.  Just impossible to keep in stock ….we have some very nice with new screens and some with 16 gigs of RAM at somewhat higher price point. MacDoc warranty and support. We have a very wide range with exceptional value for the student or family on a budget. Now with 512, 1 and 2 TB drives.

For those wanting standard ports even lighter…2017 Airs in stock . $790

Acceptance of Thunderbolt 3 USB-c is growing. Always special consideration for students and families on a budget. Talk to us.

The light weight, the incredible screens of Apple’s 13″ portables and crazy drive speeds are very appealing.

My first client from 35 years ago just snapped up one to go with his snazzy new Tesla which I got to drive. Very impressive.

Acceptance of Thunderbolt 3 with 64 and even 128 RAM capacity on the newer models plus awesome performance is persuasive.

Many more Thunderbolt 3 externals as well but be careful – they are not all very functional …we stick with OWC. The MacMini is truly astonishing powerhouse. Geekbench 4 (MC): 24072  !!!!for reference a black 8 core MacPro Geekbench 4 (MC): 21935 and just a hair under the 2.7 12 core. Plus you get the advantage of faster RAM and Thunderbolt 3.

In stock  …the heart of a great audio rig . Intel or M1

add the new OWC Thunder 3 RAID Station see details below starting $377

Put your own drives in or a pair of SSDs or standard drives up to 32 TB ( 16 TB x 2 ) Special  Akitio 8 TB Enterprise RAID $677  We are seeing lots of upgrades …..SSD prices are way down and the NVMe technology provides excellent gains in performance. Processor upgrades for 5,1 and 6,1 towers as well as RAM and drives for them –  NVMe drives rock. With the new machines mostly locked down for  upgrades the last non-USB-C generation are very attractive both for price and performance…..ease of use.  

We have more machines and more deals than listed here.

HOT!  MacPro 6,1 Processor Upgrades to 12 core $690 …good prices on complete 6,1 while supplies last. We have drive upgrades to the new NVMe flash drives to 2 TB – double the drive speed and RAM upgrades to 128. With flexible OS the MacPro 6,1 remains very cost effective – we have machines with Apple warranty at a wide variety of configurations. Easier connection with existing peripherals.

MIGHTY – Mac Mini (2018) 3.2 i7 Hex core 32gb 2666MHz 512 Flash Intel UHD 630 some trades welcome 1 TB Flash machine in stock as well.   We have a wide variation of 2018 MacMinis and some with 1 TB flash in stock. Ask about monitor deals with this.   There are wide variations on RAM and drive. We prefer clients go with OWC NVMe technology in an external case for increased drive space without sacrificing any drive speed at all https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/owc-envoy-pro-ex-thunderbolt-3

Who we are
Supporting the Canadian Mac community since 1985!
We’re now into MacDoc’s 36th year supporting the Canadian Mac Community and that mostly enjoyable occupation has been a central feature for the latter part of my 7 decades.
Had coffee with my very first client from back then – still buying Macs from his favourite source and swapping family life tales. Got to drive his new Tesla ( very nice ) and he treated himself to the delightful 13″ Thunderbolt 3 MacBook Pro.

Thanks to all for their support over the years ..send friends!

Still riding after all these years…57 and counting.

3 Score and fourteen 😀 ??? ….Oct marked my 74th birthday yeah some mornings it feels like it but on the open road with my pretty white Honda CB300f or travelling the Chilean backroads with my Australian partner, it remains a very satisfying run. Nearly half that span I’ve been in the Mac biz and still have my first client from 36 years ago. From the FatMac to to an SE30 with fangs, the 6100AV and the Bondi Blue iMac and the “weaponized G4” that put Apple back on track it’s been exciting. Todays Macs are breathtaking and tho Steve is missed, Apple’s design team brings us amazing tools that are a pleasure to use. Thanks for all those years supporting MacDoc….a few more to come then and then I’ll bow out slowly and let a new generation continue. Send Friends.
