I just got an email from Best Buy advertising that they now sell Macs. It includes a coupon for $50 off a Mac mini, or $100 off "Apple computers". That's a pretty good deal for people in CA.

Pretty good deal if you ask me! The apple sales people annoy me sometimes- they insist their not trying to sell extras to you, but they are :mad:

And Best Buy tries to sell you those damn warranties. When I bought my xBox years back, I was arguing with the ******* of a cashier for 5 minutes as he pressured me like a used car salesman to buy their stupid, useless warranty. If I was as smart back then, I would've told the cashier to take the xBox and shove it and gone down the street to Slackers (locally owned CD/video game chain store in STL) and bought it. Hell, not really down the street....more like 4 or 5 stores down in the shopping center.

I've never had an Apple Store worker not take no for an answer....but I've never had them try to push extras on me either. It's always been a simple "Would you like Applecare today?"..."No, I'll buy it later." "OK then. Enjoy your new Mac"

And even if the Apple Store people did push extras on you, I'd still go there, because if I have any questions about the product, I'm not going to get some dumbass high school dropout with a single digit IQ stand there and scratch his ass while unable to comprehend that the Apple I'm talking about isn't something that grew on a tree. I can deal with pushy salesmen, I can't deal with lying and unknowledgeable salesmen.

Again??

Best Buy has had an on-and-off love affair with Macs. Mostly off.

What is this, the third time they've decided to sell Macs again? Anyone wanna take bets on how it'll last this time?

Whatev, as long as every Mac is booted up in Windows XP I'm sure they can handle it.:p

As a best buy employee, I think its gonna be on for a while

The reason we stopped carrying the mac-mini's was because 80% of them were returned. For reasons you could probably guess.

Are those reasons being that they couldn't run that $2 software in the bargain bins?

Yes its true, you cant install cheap unstable no name software on your Mac.

I would be worried that the employees would no have knowledge about the MAC OS and would push people on to a windows PC b/c they had no idea how OSX works. Comp USA is totally different where all the employees seem to enjoy the macs and know the software. They also carry a lot of mac software and accesories.

This is awesome. I wish there was a Best Buy in SB (although CompUSA has Macs already).
