    To be honest I prefer BestBuy to the DSG groups that are around (pcworld/currys etc). They seem to know more about the product and there's a certain professionalism to the workers too.

    Shame really

    I agree, I've been impressed by the staff in my local store. The chap on the Apple stand has been very helpful and I chose to buy my iPad from them last Friday.

    It will be a shame to see them go so soon, they've hardly give it a chance to establish itself in the UK.

    Every time I've been to the Thurrock store it's been a pleasant experience.

    Such a shame that people are going to lose their jobs in this climate.
