Cardiff doesn't have an Apple Store though.

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

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

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!

Cardiff Store

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
