Yesterday, I went down to the apple store in Soho NYC to see if I could purchase the *new* $699.00 maxed out mini. When I asked the sales person were there any in stock, he told me that they're stocked but there's no such thing as a $699.00 mini and tried to sell me the same configuration for $850.00 Exclamation I told him to check the web site and he insisted that there was no such configuration. I pulled up the apple site in front of him....and low and behold...was the $699.00 mac mini. He apologized and started rambling, but I was so disappointed and disgusted, I bolted out of the store Mad . I just expected an Apple store sales person to be more knowledgeable than that.

WOW...that's not Apple-ish at all compared to the Apple Stores/Apple Sections of COMPUSA, that I've been to, the people were very knowledgable and polite. Plus they didn't bug me after I told them I was just looking around. Don't you hate it when a salesmen just won't layoff, well, back on topic, I would've told the store manager or something. Jeeze, not knowing what model of computer they're selling. That would be like going to a Jeep dealership and the salesmen telling you there's no such thing as a Wrangler, it's unbelievably stupid of them. Sorry about that bud, I'd have gone nuts Mad

Sounds like someone just didnt get the memo about the new Mini. Maybe if you go back and get a different dude they'll be a bit more knowledgeable. I'd have still bought one after correcting the dude just to rub it in his face some more hehe

Most of my encounters with mac sales people were pretty positive, so I'm not going to condemn the entire store and I will continue to shop there. A few hours later, I got a deal that I couldnt refuse on a dual 2.3 ghz G5 at another store which more than made up for it Very Happy.
