Today we unveiled the long awaited new release of our website. We’re still working out a few kinks, but overall the transition has gone rather smoothly. So why not spend a few posts talking about some of the new site features.
There are two things we love here at PowerbookMedic, one of course is Apple. The second is cutting edge website design. Almost everything we do is done in house, and when it comes to programmers, we’ve got some of the best.
One of the features that has been getting the most attention is our new Identify Model feature. To get there, just click on the “Identify Model” link in the navigation bar.
So what’s so cool about this new feature? As you begin to type your model number into the search box, the site narrows down in realtime which model you have. Once the site has enough information to determine the family name of the machine, it highlights it. Hit enter, and a lightbox window opens up with all of the model number information for that family name including model and speed info.
This new feature should make it easier than ever to locate exactly what parts you new for your Apple laptop or iPod.
We’ll be fleshing this new feature out in the months to come based on user input and suggestions, but in its initial form it’s a pretty great new feature.
On a side note, I’d like to give a special thanks to all our team members and their families. There have been a lot of extra hours and late nights over here, and this new site wouldn’t have been possible without you…and an extra special thanks to my wife who has endured a shell of her husband these last few months. Thank you!
