Visit to the Apple Store


Maybe this belongs in Non Cat Chat, please move if needed

Loved the store: big, gleaming white, full of electronics and extremely helpful friendly people. No sign whatsoever on the building, just glass walls floor to ceiling streetside with just the Apple logo above ... no wording. Cool!

I didn't get exactly what I wanted. The desktop doesn't come any smaller than 21.5", quite a bit larger than I'd have preferred. I liked the laptop's size, but they all had that keyboard flat, not slightly tilted: I hated that when using Carolyn's laptop Mac. And no mouse! Just a sort of flat space that acted as a mouse when you moved your finger around .... didn't like that feature either, although I suppose it's the current thing now.
The mouse with the desktop is weird looking, nothing like my current one, and both it and the keyboard are wireless! A lot of new things to adjust to.

Anyhow, new computer sitting in its box till I get moved ..... always something!

Oh Kazz, I'm ahead of you there: want the full length windows, the Southern exposure (Western in a pinch, the more sun/light the better), and near the elevators! And hopefully, on the floor that has the outside roof deck, but that would be a bonus, bot a necessity ... can always get there.

Re: Visit to the Apple Store


Kass, all the studio apartments are exactly the same plan. One difference is windows. some have larger ones. And the closet and kitchen is on the left side as you enter in some, and on the right in others.
