I'm an Apple fan. It's nice to have a computer that encourages creativity and it is not prone to viruses. As Apple Stores go, the store at Alderwood Mall is a nice mixture of accessability and selection. It feels a little bigger than the Bellevue Square Store though it seems smaller than the theater equipped store in the University district. Parking and traffic can be difficult during the holidays and peak periods since Alderwood's "outdoor" shopping and restaurants are the newest stores and draw the most visitors. Staff is usually knowledgable. Their selection of accessories and software is good.
