I'm a long time Mac User (started with System 7) but don't have a current local community of Mac-using friends or colleagues. I am pretty proficient but certainly not a power user of the more recent options. Wondering whether the One-to-One sessions are really useful, or if I can actually get pretty much the same thing from them with just regular queries or Genius Bar appointments. Has anyone here had a membership? Did you find it worthwhile? Disappointing? Useful? I'd love to hear about your experiences to help decide whether to activate for my new iMac.

My only concern regarding the one-on-one sessions is the environment they're held in - the Apple Stores are noisy and distracting. Beyond that, I've heard good things about the teaching quality from some people who have used the service.

I have a one-2-one subscription I have yet to activate.. I think it maybe worth the money if I can get a couple goo sessions out of it to push me to the next level in some of the software.

A couple "goo" sessions? I guess that explains the unlikely remark that followed:

Maybe meet a nice lady there too ;)

At our location, the One-to-One sessions begin an hour (or two? I think just one) before the official store opening time, so it's quieter. That was a concern I had, too, since it can be hard to pay attention in noisy environments. Definitely wouldn't try to do them during lunchtime!

A good friend of mine invested in the One-to-One sessions when she got her first Mac a year or so ago and she found them excellent. She's NOT a computer geek and found the transition to the Mac OS after years of using Windows confusing at times, but the One-to-One sessions were very helpful.
