Yes because people like you and the other Apple users are just too good to shop at places like Best Buy.


Let me tell you something about me. I'm no Apple fan-boy. I use many systems & I'm also a core member of an alternative OS team. I know the value of using the strengths of systems while avoiding the weaknesses. To be honest, I don't by electronics from those types of stores anyway. However, when I buy from Apple, I know that I'll have a great shopping experience -so, I go to the Apple store. It also gives me a chance to play with some of their new stuff that you don't seen in Best Buy. So, YES, I'M TOO GOOD TO SHOP AT BEST BUY! I learned about computers back when there was no such thing as chipsets. I know more about computers than most salespeople. I don't need some dumbass trying to "assist" me in my shopping when he has no idea of what I need & what I'm trying to accomplish. I'm not someone who can be "sold to". I know what I want when I go in. You can't show me an Apple product at Best Buy that I can't also see in an Apple Store, but the reverse isn't true! There'll always be products in an Apple Store that aren't in Best Buy AND I can actually interact with them without some idiot disturbing me while I'm evaluating them. If you can't understand that, then you're the perfect customer for Best Buy -the low end store that it is.
