The successful computer retailers which are left, like Best Buy, don't do any of these things. They sell a wide variety of products - packed in tightly, employ minimum wage staff, and watches the bottom line closely. Apple Retail flies completely in the face of all of these conventions, and that's the way it was designed to be.


Isn't that a good reason that Apple SHOULDN't do that? Don't you know how much those stores suck?

I for one, applaud someone trying to do things properly, rather than just copying everyone else's strategy.

Also - how do you know what the sales figures for the stores are when you make your assertion that they "have no sales"?
