Apple's JointVenture For Business Gets Official

Apple has officially launched its JointVenture support for small businesses. Support comes from the Apple store and will be provided by the Apple Genius Bar. The plan is only available to business customers when purchasing a Mac, but the $499 service will include training and support for up to five “systems,” which include iOS devices and Cinema Displays.

Once enrolled in the plan, Apple Geniuses will set up the new Macs and transfer old data from a PC or Mac and install software. Also, Joint Venture members will have personalized priority support that allows them to schedule trainings and get support. There are also loaner computers to use when a business sends computers in for repair.
