Three times this week I have been in my local Apple store and witnessed customers who intended to buy a MacBook air be aggressively steered by an Apple employee to the MacBook Pro 13" instead. The staffer compare the disk drive size, cpu speed, and ram of the two and point out the Pro is cheaper. The failed to consider the cost to upgrade MBP to solid state. Each was after the customer clearly stated: "I want to buy an MBA with [specific specs]". Each instance was more than a simple "have you considered this over hear as an option". It seems a deliberate, consistent opinion of the Apple store staff that one should not purchase MacBook Air at this time. Why is this? Do the store staff not want people unhappy when a refresh comes out later this month? Does the store have an interest in retaining their MBA inventory? Are they being encouraged to move the MBP 13"s? Or maybe they just honestly think that the MBP 13" is a better fit for most people. Maybe I'll ask next time I am in. I appreciate the expertise being shared and the assistance of the Apple Store staff. Yet in my opinion, this aggressive redirection makes a customer feel unsure about their purchase and encourages buyers' remorse upon returning home with something different than they were convinced they wanted when they walked in. Has anyone else witnessed this or similar? Thoughts?
