Cardiff doesn't have an Apple Store though. :p

Well, only that authorized repair place that takes a month at a time to sort anything out...:rolleyes:

It's just as easy to get to London too!

20 for 2 singles (there and back) is cheaper than a return to Brum.
Plus there's a chance you can meet one or more of the lovely London based Demis for a drink or 6!


As for Cardiff, there's a couple of us in Newport too.

I'll be at the Birmingham store, but I'm lucky that I only work about 100 yards from there :D

Hi, first they are a premium reseller.

Second being the only AASP in Wales you can expect delays when repairing Macs.

I actually do all the repairs with the help of a colleague who I'm training at the same time.

FYI

I've lived in and around Cardiff for a long time now, but I'm originally from Cheltenham , and I still send my hardware back there for my repairs, as there's an Authorised Service Provider there who will usually turn it around in a couple of days or so IME (they've even done repairs while I wait). Better than anyone I can find more locally unfortunately.

Anyway, I've got Leopard on pre-order but pleased to see other Cardiff MacRumors members making more of an effort - maybe I'll see you in town for the iPhone scramble instead! ;)

Evening. Not from Cardiff but from Cwmbran and I'll be at MacExpo on Friday I'm going to try and get in the queue at the Regent Street Store to pick up my copy of Leopard as well a free T-shirt!

The Premium Reseller in Cardiff will be getting Leopard in Friday morning.

The store is closing at 4-5pm to install in the showroom etc and then re-opening at 6 till 8 ready to sell copies.

Might be important to some of you guys.


Also there's rumors that there will be this guy at the store roaring to greet customers :p
