At least MS stores give you a place to sit down to play with the hardware.

Very true! If Apple had chairs, people would be in there for hours on end.

Not sure if you can't tell those are Sony Vaio Pros

There's also been a hundred posts about MS stores possibly ripping off Apple retail stores already.

Apple - the first company to have wooden tables and windows

Seriously, it's a computer shop, how you guys have such loyalty to a company that exists to make money off you I'll never understand.

And that would be a good thing? Apple stores are already packed beyond belief.

The little mall-store near my hometown used to have chairs when it opened- but they went away within a few months. They told me they had too many teens going in to use facebook/myspace/email and it was preventing them from helping actual customers.

In my opinion it would be a bad thing. See second half of your post.

Might be a copy but it looks like a really nice store. Wish my mall had that.

It would be funny if the Microsoft Store sold Macs running Windows

Taking pictures of yourself at a store, yep. That's what those two people over there are doing.

Most mall stores look similar now. It's a cheap and easy setup.
