    I think I am going to switch to a mac soon but I wanted to browse the mac app store before I make the final decision.
    Is there a way I can do this without first getting a mac ? e.g. from my iPad browser ?
    Thanks.

    No, to access the Mac App Store, you need a Mac running 10.6.6 or higher.

    Why do you need to access the app store? Its one of Apple's latest flops (IMO). The majority of the top downloaded apps are all made by Apple.

    Sadly no maybe go to a best buy or Apple store and check out a mac with the App store on it.

    Alternative.

    Sadly, I have not heard of any way you can access the Mac App Store without using a Mac.
    At least not through the Mac App Store Application
    You could google the Application you want on a web browser and you can open that page (similar to the Mac App Store) there.

    While not through the Mac App Store application, you can sort of preview Apps via browser by clicking around the website: http://www.apple.com/osx/apps/app-store.html

    I actually use that sometimes as it loads a lot faster than the App Store on my hoopty internet connection....
