    I was just looking at the "one to one" training here.

    has anyone tried this (particularly at the regents street store) - is worth the money??

    are you kidding? its amazingly cheap for private tuition, have you seen the price of private tuition? some people pay thousands to learn things like final cut/logic/shake in uni too, its very good, and also for beginners too.

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    It depends on what you want out of it. For Pro Apps or even to get the most out of iLife projects, then possibly. For basic stuff, I doubt it.

    If you can schedule your weekly hour and you know what you want to learn then yes, it's worth it. If you know that you won't use most of your weekly hours then no, it's not.

    If you're really clueless about Macs then it's a good thing. I actually observed a session take place while I was at the Apple Store...basically someone who is knowledgeable about Macs sits down with you at the genius bar and uses your Mac with you. It really was one-on-one.

    But if I didn't know how to use my mac, I'm the type of person to just sit there and figure it out (i.e. browse on the internet finding tutorials e.g. the apple site has a really good one! or I would eventually find discussion forums). Because the Mac is so easy to use that literally anyone can get up and running on the internet.

    But hey, not everybody is as adventurous as I am I guess, so I understand that the one-to-one training is something people would like to take advantage of. For the price it isn't bad I guess. But they make tons of money on stuff like that i.e. there's no way the apple guy sitting there with you for a short amount of time cost that much.

    don't you only get one session per month ?

    EDIT - my mistake - its one hour a week

    I tend to learn an awful lot from forums and googling etc, so i kinda thing that it would only be worth while to me if the apple person was like "uber smart" taught me stuff in a session i would have spent several evenings searching for
