    Could you ask the sales assistant when the G5 PowerBooks are due?

    there are on display, yes......

    but only shuffle ACCESSORY boxes are visible.....well it is late in the day :D

    maybe they have them out back, in a safe.

    there are plenty of mini's and mac mini's tho, and for some inane reason, ibooks are selling like hotcakes.

    i think they move the ipods around to different computers all the time, because last time i came there was shuffles with the mini's....now there are photo's.

    interesting.

    BTW, im now on a dual 2.5 :D :D :D

    While you're badgering him ask when Tiger's due. Also pronounce as many products wrong as you can like ip-od instead of i-pod, ib-ook instead of i-book try say OSX as a single syllable and just before you finish ask in a posh voice for a Lion Bar or Curley Wurley á la Little Britain. They love that!

    If you want to **** around with them...
    Try asking all that whilst dressed up as one of those blue-faced intel dummies in the adverts.

    Theyll be scrabbling around for their customer service training manuals

    Ditto.

    I've been in there at least once a week for the past month. I have never left empty handed.

    First off, iMac G5 20". (That wasn't an impulse buy, honest!)
    Swiftly followed by an iSight and VPC. (Impulse buy)
    Ooops then an APE. (Another impulse buy.)
    Then, a Kensington Travel charger for my PB, APX and a 1GB Shuffle
    Last Friday, I had to buy an iPod Photo 60GB. (Definitely an impulse buy!)
    And then yesterday a 0.5m firewire cable to make things tidy behind my iMac, another iSight and some iPod Socks to keep my iPod cosy!!! (Necessary accessories ;) ).

    I'm already thinking about the next purchase!

    I found that the store has just about everything in stock. Most of the small hardware is behind the counter (iPods, Minis etc) and the large stuff come up in the lift at the back!

    It's the cheapest Internet cafe in London! Everyone seems to be on webmail!

    Except that it's cost you the better part of £2000 in the past month to look at it! ;)

    I've improved a lot in terms of managing to get and out without always purchasing something... it's now only every other time! I do seem to have a large collection of white drawstring bags though now!

    Small, Medium and Enormous. Ironically, I got the biggest one when I bought my Shuffle since that was the only size they had left.

    I use them as gym bags. Normal supermarket bags get used for binliners.

    Those blue faced intel "dummies" are Blueman Group which is probably the most superb and awesome show in the history of man kind. Don't mess with the blue "dummies". Everybody would be in an Intel ad if they got paid enough!
