    I went to this new store today just to say I did, nice clean and new. The chatter and clapping got on my nerves. (get a life)
    Odd thing was, as hard as I looked around I didn't see any Apple products there at all. Gates is playing catch-up and soon will fail in my opinion just like Gateway did.

    Also, open space and computers at comfortable working, eye level is just called ergonomics. Any corporation with a brain would implement this if they wanted to sell people on hardware. It makes it accessible.

    This whole argument for "Copycat Stores" is paper thin, if it even has any substance to begin with.

    THe only copycat action here are the stores itself. "Apple's got them, we should have them."
    There's a way you can achieve all of that without borrowing Apple's store designers. I really hope you were kidding, because it looks like MS moved into an already existing Apple store and replaced all the Macs with PCs.

    That's what was said about the original Apple stores. I actually hope MS really pounds on Apple. I hate the stores, They are full of pretentious douchebags for the most part, and people that are usually lackeys. I worked for Apple Corporate for 8 years and quit because I was tired of the ********. I had heard numerous horror stories of the Apple Stores in Austin and other places. ****, My team which I personally supported over $45million in sales annually were doing a team building treasure hunt and had a bad experience at the Apple store. Funny how even Apple employees have lots of bad experiences at their Sister Stores. The Retail Stores are completely separate from Corp in reality btw.

    And yet you don't even know the proper name of your products? It's a Mac Mini tard

    i'm just gonna have to say that this article i do not like. Ummm so Microsoft decided to go for a spacious store instead of a packed one... that makes complete sense but yeah i guess every store that is spacious it's just a copy of apple store. they do look different. obviously they are gonna put their computers on tables spread out what do you expect them to do? float them in the air or just put them on the ground?

    Good looking girls in both the Apple stores in Austin. Lots of dorky dudes too, which makes it easy to come off looking rico swavay.

    I wonder what brand of pc's they will be carrying? I've certainly never heard of an MS pc. This MS store seems like a big fail.

    too bad, doesn't change my opinion about the shoddy cheap hardware Microsoft offers, I actually think less of them now for their lack of innovation in reinventing the apple store

    I agree. It's so obvious that they are trying to copy Apple's store that its absurd that people would think otherwise. The fact is that they have been reactive instead of proactive when it comes to competing with Apple.

    I didn't read all the posts ahead of me, so it may have been said...

    I could definitely see the screens lining the room come to a halt with a beautiful blue screen of death. It almost looks like it already.

    That girl in the video must have been wearing a 5XL t-shirt. Guess Microsoft will have to raise their prices to pay for the extra fabric for her shirts and health insurance for obesity.
