LOL Hi Dov...

I think that maybe, in SOME cases, some people like the Apple brand because it's an identity thing. No different from the egghead who drives a Subaru, or a Southern fella driving a pickup truck.

But overall many of them like Buff feel like it's a better functioning machine. And yes, Buff and others are true brand ambassadors. I think about how Apple didn't need to advertise to me ONCE. I bought one and soon two machines based on word of mouth. Reinforces what i've always felt in my own business life: Word of mouth trumps conventional advertising, or at least needs to compliment traditional ads.

So went to the Apple store a few times, was surrounded by yuppies and teenagers, but felt that the computers were great.

BTW, what are two respectable girls like you doing in a place like this?
