MacNN reader Cormac Shaw writes about an iMac review in the Technology in Business section of today's (Friday) edition of The Irish Times, which notes the opening a new Apple-only store on Kildare Street, Dublin tomorrow:
In fact, the Irish launch of the new iMac is being held tomorrow (Saturday) at the store which is being referred to as an "AppleStore" by the company themselves. Compustore also has an online store which now has a prominent Apple section:
Compustore is Ireland's largest retail computer chain and has to now been a PC-only environment. That they are opening a Mac-centric retail store in central Dublin (around the corner from their main city-centre store), together with last year's opening by Apple of an Irish online AppleStore, is very positive for Mac users in Ireland where Apple's market share, I believe, is less than 2% and where we've generally had to deal with small, hard-to-find, poorly stocked and overpriced resellers.
