I actually shop @ Macstation, as I also like to support local retailers - i just think it's about time we get an Apple Store.I hope you still take your purchases over to the other awesome Apple retailers in the Vancouver area, MacStation in Abbotsford, Burnaby and Yaletown, Simply and WestWorld on Broadway, or Discount Mac Club in Richmond. This is great to get more people to switch to a Mac and I hope they do well but those of us who already know well, these fine retailers could use our support.
Was at a conference last week, and got to hang out with the guys who run MacStation. Had a beer (or two) while watching the Vancouver Canucks sadly get eliminated.I actually shop @ Macstation, as I also like to support local retailers - i just think it's about time we get an Apple Store.
Ehmax, it takes courage to step forward and beat the harmful addiction we call the Maple Leafs. I wish you luck on your path to full recovery.(Even though they said they would never cheer for the Leafs and I cheered for Vancouver)
I'm transferring my addiction over to the Toronto FC. (Game tomorrow at 3:30pm on CBC). They are owned by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment though.I've bought two systems and various accessories from MacStation Burnaby and dealt with MacStation Yaletown as well. When I move to Mission, the Abbotsford store will be a short distance away from me. Great bunch of people and highly recommended. Westworld had good enthusiastic staff as well.

Hey, I hung out with a guy from Simply as well. A guy an inch taller than me! Big dude. When I asked him if he would cheer for Leafs, I don't think I finished the sentence and he said, "H*!! no!" Nice guy too.Maple Leafs
Hell I'm an Oilers and Rangers fan in Vancouver, you can imagine how much fun that is at times.
I really like SImply Computing, its where I've purchased most of my Apple stuff.
Unless you decline the after sales support plan which includes software diagnostics and support. That $50 is well worth it for the newbies.I do realize the two MacStations I visited (one in yale town and one in burnaby) sell MacBook and iMac like $50 above the Apple's advertised retail price.
