Atlanta Apple Store Opening

A new Apple Store is in our midsts at the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta. I'm here typing this post directly from the new Apple Store. This is the 3rd Apple Store in the Atlanta Metropolitan area and it is probably the best (in Atlanta). Music is playing and it is pretty jam-packed in here.

This Perimeter Store is the first Apple Store opening since the famous Fifth Avenue grand opening (you know the one with the big cube). It looks like this one hasn't disappointed. The store is big and if I'm correct the biggest now in Atlanta. Everything seems to be on display right now. All the standard Mac stuff such as the iMac, MacMini, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iPod etc. This store however also seems to stress other products as well. Unlike other Atlanta Apple Stores this one has got a full row dedicated to printers, and storage solutions such as the LaCie 500GB Big Disk Extreme.

Also, there is a row dedicated to speakers with, of course, the iPod Hi-Fi.

Like the Fifth Avenue Store in New York there is now a Studio Bar. Here is what it is meant to do:

"The Studio is the creative hub of the Apple Store, Perimeter. A place where your ideas and our help come together to enhance your Mac projects. Whether your interest is photography, moviemaking, music or everyday use of your Mac, our team of Creatives can help you. They’ll teach you one-on-one how to re-touch photos, compose music and make Hollywood-style movies. To save time, use the Apple Store Concierge to Make a reservation."

Sadly, I couldn't come in the morning because I already had plans but I came as soon as I could and unfortunately it looks like I missed out on the Free T-Shirt so that means that 1,000+ people have already come in.

Here are some of the pics I took below. I used the Built-in iSights and the cameras that they have at the Apple Store. I brought my own camera but my batteries were too low. Sorry about that.
