I am planning to get a MBP and live near London. I see that there are about 3 Apple stores near me, including one on Regent Street and another at Brent Cross and one at Kingston. Do any of these have a better reputation for good service and knowledgeable staff than the others? I would think that living near a major Apple store would be a good thing in terms of getting better or quicker service and support in case something goes wrong. In terms of the initial purchase, is it better to order online or go to an Apple store? Will they have computers there to take away immediately, even if you want a faster hard drive as part of the specs? Do the stores also give the educational discounts? Thanks for any advice.
