Test drive a new device safely with a VPN

While the MacBook Pro has been a top choice among designers and artists for years, now may be the perfect time to try out one of these alternatives.  No matter what operating system you’re using to create content, the safety and security of your work should always come first.  By using a VPN to access the internet when trying out new devices, you’ll ensure that your work stays secure and your privacy remains intact.

Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity.  Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

Here are some of the deals we found for keeping our work machines safe.
