As to pimply faced teens. . .maybe if that wasn't all electronic stores hired the stereotype wouldn't be there. I don't and won't shop in B&M electronic stores. The male kids they hire see 40something female and either won't wait on me or treat me like an idiot. Amazon gets my business by default.
How dare you!

Outside of my iPod (which I only have because they've kind of cornered the market on portable music), I don't buy Apple products.

They're just too darn expensive and I don't know how so many of my college friends have Apple-this and Apple-that (OK, I know how a few of them have it, and it's because mom and dad have deep pockets).

I have an Acer that works just fine, even runs Photoshop and a whole slew of other "fancy" software. I pad around $300 for it when my cousin's Macbook with comparable hardware cost close to $1500.

Maybe I'm just not hip to my generation, but I'll always be a PC/Android person. I know too many people with complaints about poor service for too much money with Apple.

I am also disappointed in Apple. We decided not to extend our warranty on my iPod Classic. About a month later, the head phone jack broke. Should be a cheap and easy fix, right? Well, they want to charge me $200!!! No thanks, I'll take my business else where...

I purchased iTouches for my kids on Black Friday last year from Amazon as Christmas presents. My son's battery was having issues last week and they replaced the iTouch. Purchase date in their system is 12/25/11.

I got a launch ipad 2 and the cell connection was dead from day one. When I brought it back 2 weeks later it was replaced but if you don't buy their warranty then your warranty disappears once you replace your ipad once. So when I has screen issues 6 months later they said they wouldn't replace it because the one year warranty ends when you switch it out the first time. I complained because my first exchange was a doa item. It took 20 minutes but they did swap it out, but they acted like they were doing me this big favor. For 830$ I expected to actually have a one year warranty on it not a one year/one fix warranty and then it is gone.
