Today I bought a Mini. I was in an Apple store west of Philly, PA.... We all know that Apple products are not inexpensive.... I have been in this store about 20x in my life. It is ALWAYS jam packed. and people are always buying. Today the line to checkout must have been 15 people deep. I was moved out of line today while an employee was checking on something for me. i was standing right at the checkout area. It took 15 minutes or so to get what I needed. In that short time frame, I am "guesstimating" that this apple store sold $20,000 worth of gear. I saw at least 2 MBP purchased. One of them the guy bought a printer and had about 7 boxes of software with him. The guy who was behind me in line before I was moved out, was buying a Mac Pro desktop, and he told me he was adding upgrades. I have no idea what they cost, but aren't they upwards of $4K? And every time I am in this store it seems exactly the same way. packed with people buying. BTW, this was at noon today, and they were already "sold out", so to speak, of genius" appointments for the day. I knew I should have bought Apple stock way back when it was $16 a share.
