  • Comparison Guides

    For those of you who desire information laid out in comparison charts then you have found the right page. Here we attempt to group large amounts of data into digestible chunks for all our customers and their e-devices. While tabs may not be the best format for everyone's needs it does appease 'The Google' while leaving sufficient space to accommodate new additions to our product line.

    Comparison charts are not hard and fast rules, but rather, generalizations intermixed with vague and elastic terms. Consider them as cautionary guides to help the inexperienced from making a poor first choice. Our goal ... Maple's goal, is to ensure the early steps of your journey are encouraging and rewarding ones. Where your travels take you from here will be of your own making.

    By all means, investigate blogs and artists and heed their advice, seek the wisdom of others who have preceded before you and learn from their trials and tribulations ... but more importantly ... do not be afraid to strike out on your own path and try things that others cannot see.


    "Let your creativity dictate your needs and the path you walk will be your own"
