I guess I am just venting my frustrations......but I really was dissapointed with the level of service and knowledge of the employees at the apple store. In reading this forum for only a matter a week or so I seemed to be more in the know then the two apple store empoyees that "helped" me out. They did not know what rpms the drives on the ibook, macs, and powerbooks spun at. Had no clue about the compatibility issues between DVI and VGA inputs on the ibook and powerbooks (One employee even told me you could plug a 20 inch cinema display into the ibook with out any need for an adapter). Guess the gist is they had only the basic commerical knowledge necessary to wow uninformed consumers. Thank God for a cool sight like this so you can do your research. In my opinion the apple store is great for checking out all the cool products, but do not rely on the sells people to be up to par. Most non spec systems have to be ordered on line anyway. The cool thing is I got to check out the new imacs and they rock. Even decided to stretch my cash and opt out of an ibook for a new 17 inch i mac. The displays are amazing!! The 20" is just too hughe for my works space. Happy hunting!
