Over this past Christmas, I became an Apple customer. I got myself a new ipod nano and also an iphone. Now, while I'm in the process of needing to purchase a new laptop, and several of my friends are trying to convince me to get a Mac - which I'm iffy about but am willing to consider.

Things will become much easier to consider starting tomorrow, Thursday 5/15, when the new Back Bay Apple store opens. Normally, I'd have to drive over to Cambridgeside and pay $1.99 for my hour of parking just to check things out at the store. Now I'll be able to walk there to the Back Bay store and loiter as long as I want - much more convenient.

The much debated, highly anticipated, three-story glass facade building at 815 Boylston St. will open to the public on Thursday evening, making it Apple's largest retail venture in the United States. The Back Bay shop will feature oodles of gadgets, including 64 iPod music and video players, 104 Mac laptops and computers, and a third floor dedicated entirely to service that can accommodate 100 customers receiving one-on-one training at the same time.

    Drive to Cambridgeside?

    Why not pay $1.70 and ride the T to Lechmere? Or better yet, ride a bike - it's free, and between the hours of 6am and 10pm, faster.

    Honestly, since you seem to enjoy the inefficiency and frustration of driving a car, I think you'll be much happier sticking with Windows.

    Hi Cosmo,
    You're absolutely right, I should be riding the T to Lechemere. I usually do try to walk or T it wherever I go in the metro-boston area, but there is something about the T ride to Lechemere that I find particularly daunting so that I almost always end up driving instead. During the summer though when the weather is nice, I'll T it over to Kendall and walk to Cambridgeside from there.

    this Apple store isn't 24 hours like the NYC one right? I find it odd that they need a 24 hour store.
