New Belkin Switch-to-Mac Cable makes switching from Windows PC to Mac easy

The new Belkin Switch-to-Mac Cable provides a simple way to transfer files, settings, preferences, and more from your old Windows PC to a new Mac computer. Unlike existing products where you have to drag and drop specific files you want to transfer, the Switch-to-Mac Cable-with its easy-to-use Migration Assistant-automatically moves your music, movies, photos, files, and Internet preferences, making the transition from Windows PC to the superior Mac as seamless as possible.

• Needham forecasts that in the next 10 years, Mac unit sales will grow dramatically to almost 40 million units by 2017.

The new Belkin Switch-to-Mac Cable (US$49.99) is available now in the US and will be available in February 2009 in Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia
