MCE Technologies, located in San Dimas, California, was founded in Irvine, California in 1993 as a wholesaler of Macintosh equipment to overseas dealers and distributors. In 1996 the company recognized a void in the retail supply of products for the Apple PowerBook and shifted its focus completely to supplying PowerBook products directly to the consumer.

  • With three electrical engineers leading its staff along with a strong understanding of the needs of PowerBook users, in 1998 MCE became an Apple Developer and launched its own line of MCE branded products for the Apple PowerBook. MCE was first to market with its MCE Xcarét Pro and Xcarét Pro 2000 Expansion Bay CD-RW drives for PowerBook G3.
  • Since then, MCE has developed a complete lineup of Mac-first storage solutions, including our OptiBay 2nd drive kit that replaces the Mac's SuperDrive (DVD Drive) with a 2nd hard drive or solid state drive, internal and external hard drives, CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, and Blu-ray recordable drives, as well as a number of portable accessories for use with various Macs.
  • MCE enjoys the hard-earned reputation among its customers and within the industry of being a premier provider of innovative products for the Apple MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini, PowerBook, iBook, and Power Mac lines of Macintosh computers. MCE currently markets its brand of high-performance products to overseas and domestic distributors, dealers and professional end-users.

MCE plans to continue its quest to bring innovative and compelling products to the Mac market…empowering its customers and reaffirming their belief that they own the greatest computers in the world.
