You're not yankin' my chain about Boston , are you? I was afraid that it'd be too big a headache for them to overcome some of the pretty decent mac support/stores we have - I'm not saying they're great, but I've lived in places (Seoul being one overseas, Valparaiso, IN (law school) one over here) where you could not find but one or two places that had even heard - or wanted to hear - about macs.
Although, Computer Town did suddenly disappear from Boston a few months ago... I actually liked them - and the old Mac shop that used to be in the BU Bookstore....
All these cities your talking about are well and good but why not put a store in the largest city of all? New York City! There are surprisingly few stores that even stock apple software and even less with apple hardware. An Apple store would certainly do well, as i would be there every day.
anyone know if there will be one? how 'bout hartford?

i think stores in europe and more advertisment is really needed!!!
i'm currently on vacation in germany @ may cousins, does she have any friends that own macs? no! did i meet like 20 people here! Yes! overall the mac i a nonexistent/option here, for some twisted reason, and a double sides sword, software for mac is sometimes twice as much or at least much more than pc software!
I even met a guy who *LOVES* winblows!!! (he even hate LINUX!)was i shocked? YES! though i have to give him some score for owning a 100More Mhz AMD machine! hehe! (F*** intel)!
anyway the market here in europe is expanding and is less saturated than in USA or Canada (where i reside) my recomendation? Plant the seeds and they will gow! Apple needs to do some PR work here to save these souls from the Winblows platform...
and to prove i'm not trolling (troll - coined by slashdot), shehas winblows 2000, she uses it to connect to the internet...she has a cd burner *insert laugh here* but need to reboot in win ME (a total failure) to burn cd's!!! and canot connect to the internet from ME!! did the people that sold her the computer know how to fix this?*insert laught here* COMPAQ! NO! did any of her die hard winblow users know? well thiz the present and she still has to dual boot! (warning, sarcasm filter must be applied) thats what i like about winblows!
so, my suggestion is clear-- start focusing on growing coutries and u will have the mass to sell to.
much to contrary belief, quality is not a factor in 'everyday' people,
*cost* is! u get competitive costs compare to winblows and u get peopel who want to dish out the money!
