Apple to help new Mac users get started in stores

10 Jan 2011

Apple will introduce a service in its retail stores to help users set up their new Mac purchases.

According to 9to5 Mac, while the stores have already offered this assistance on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch purchases, it was not available for Mac computers.

Reportedly, the service will be available from Tuesday, with some stores getting specific set-up stations. It comes just less than a week after the launch of the Mac App Store.

On purchasing a Mac, an employee will show the user the basics of using the device, help them set up their email accounts, take them through the Mac App Store and set up their iTunes account.

The introduction of the service, along with the launch of the App Store for Macs, should help Apple edge out that bit further in selling its computers to customers.
