Cider Press Publishing Company Background
Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley,
Cider Press Publishing LLC maintains two distinct sites; MacSpeedZone,
established 1996 and MacReviewZone,
established 1998. Since their inception, both sites have become
invaluable resources consumers visit to become informed purchasers
of computers and related hardware & software. Both sites
make it almost effortless for consumers to quickly find the
information they need to make an informed purchasing decision.
Whether visitors are looking for independent performance benchmarks,
feature comparisons or reviews from industry leading publications,
our data rich sites provide the information consumers are
after. If we don't have the data a visitor needs on our sites, we
let them know where to find it.
This site consists of a tremendous amount of technical information
with a focus on evaluating Macintosh hardware and software performance. In addition
to the wealth of consumer related technical information, there
are regular informational and opinion articles. MacSpeedZone also
has a regular contest that gives away valuable hardware and
The core of MacReviewZone is a comprehensive index of all
online hardware and software reviews by the major Macintosh
related magazines MacAddict, macHOME, Mac Gamer's Ledge, MacUser
UK and Macworld. MacReviewZone also publishes popular weekly Buyer's
Guides that track prices and bundles for Apple hardware. In addition MacReviewZone offers regular features, in-house
reviews, a monthly contest and a database of user reviews.
Both sites serve as the primary
resource for consumers in the process of contemplating their next Mac hardware or software purchase.
