    Hello guys !!!

    Need some help from someone from Fort Lauderdale or near by !!

    I will be travelling to Fort Lauderdale on Monday, 17th. I'm going on business and need my to take my computer with me to work on Tuesday.

    Although I have a MBP, i'm planning to leave it at home and buy a MBA.

    I know that monday 17th is holiday on the EUA and therefore I don't know if the Apple Store wil be open. Can someone help me with this ?

    The Apple Store i'm planning to go is that on the "The Galleria".

    Thanks a lot,
    Ruddy

    Going the other direction, US to Brazil, it would cost me about $0.04 a minute (I just looked it up). Even if I'm put on hold or something, 5 minutes * $0.04 is $0.20. Admittedly, I have no idea what the other direction would be though.

    That's extortion :eek:
    What about using Skype to phone around the world or are there any internet cafes which allow international calls around you?

    Yeap... Unfortunately here in Brasil we pay a lot of taxes...

    To have an idea... a MBA base model is 1800usd !!! That's why I will buy mine in the EUA.

    Skype is a solution for international phone calls...

    But according to the page, the Apple Store will open on Monday, so I'll be fine...

    Thanks a lot for those who helped !!
