The MacBooks are selling out like crazy, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area. I live in Cupertino, so I was thinking that most of the shipments would be in this area since it's close to HQ. My friend called a store in the morning and they said they had plenty in stock. I called back around 3PM and they were out. I called all of the stores and ended up heading up near San Francisco. I bought the 2.0GHZ and it was my first time purchasing a Mac in the Apple Store and my actual first Mac. The shopping experience was great, but it was a little slow. I checked in with the concierge and my advisor went on the computer to check on the hold, he went to the warehouse and came back with nothing. Then he went back in and came out with the MacBook. I thought I would be able to go, but I reminded him about the free printer. They went to the back and 30 minutes later they told me that they were out of stock. I didn't get why they didn't tell me earlier. I told them to get the Canon one and got it out. Then it took them another 15 minutes to put them into the small little check out machine and then I was able to purchase it. I find purchasing new computers in the Apple Store a little slower than other stores.
