PC World found that Apple is the “clear winner” when it comes to which stores have the smartest salespeople, lowest prices, and widest selection. The magazine recently surveyed nearly 3,500 readers and shopped 15 stores (brick-and-mortar and online retailers) to come up with the results. “Mac fans, start gloating. If there’s a clear winner in our survey results, it’s Apple. Some 63 percent of survey respondents who had visited the Apple Store rated the overall quality of its buying advice a 6 or 7. Apple Store shoppers rated the retailer particularly high in ease of finding buying advice (nearly 70 percent rated it a 6 or 7), and over 70 percent gave it top marks for providing sufficient information to make a buying decision.”
