    That my new macbook pro will run SLI... I just laughed at him. I told him that I hoped he wasnt telling everyone that, because he was wrong!

    Guy at the Apple store tells me...

    ...unless I buy from that very Apple store, I can't bring a Mac under warrantee or with Apple Care into the store if it has a problem.
    ...glossy screens on the Macbook "peel off". (This was a few months ago!)
    ...George Bush went to Harvard.

    I know the point of the thread was more to do with SLI but it just reminded me of all the silly things I've been told by the guys in Apple stores :rolleyes:

    Re. Bush

    Ha! Damn, my bad. Well our conversation went something like this...

    Me: Bush went to Yale.
    Guy: No, he went to Harvard.
    Me: Dude, he went to Yale, like his dad.
    Guy: I'm telling you he went to Harvard.
    Me: Yeah, well anyway, about Blu-ray...

    Tuns out we were both right :eek:

    Well at least he got one out of three right. Maybe he's a PoliSci major just earning some weekend scratch.

    I was told this by the Apple Store in the International Mall in Tampa.


    They tried to explain to me that, "While being AppleCare, they are still a retail store and need to not to be at the whim of AppleCare people."
