    I have recently been put in charge of the Mac and Apple line at a local retail store for computing. Most of the macs setup for display have previously been pretty much a mess with customers playing and messing around with the settings.

    I have recently reset all of the macs and created a separate user account simply for demos which have restricted parental controls for specific applications.

    I would like to deliver a service in very much a similar level to quality that the Apple store offers to its customers, therefore i would like the demo and display machines to be full of content such as example images in iPhoto and example iMove projects. I would also really like some videos or screensaver (demo screens) for the macs like they do in the Apple store just to enrich the experience a little for the customers.

    Has anyone got some of this content Apple use for demos and examples? Would really appreciate some help ;)

    Why don't you contact Apple directly? If you're an authorized reseller you can go through the proper channels.

    The Apple stores uses an image provided by corporate to store all computer/ipod/iPad images for the demo computers. You could probably mimic this but putting all the stuff you would like to see on a demo mac onto one computer (add movies, iPhoto photos, screensaver, etc) and then image that computer's hdd onto a harddrive. From there, just use the image on each demo computer you have.
