Best Computer Store: TIE: Apple Store; Discount Electronics

A tie for Best Computer Store is a bit like apples and oranges when you're dealing with Macs vs. PCs. But the readers have spoken. If you have a Mac, fixing it up couldn't be more convenient than swinging by the store, grabbing a ticket, and entertaining yourself with new gadgets while waiting for service. The eagerly hip sales help seems so young to know so much more than we do that it's humiliating … but in a good way, because they get the Mac products repaired or replaced quickly. Discount Electronics only handles Dell, but Dells are pretty big business here in Austin, so it's terrific to have a store dedicated to maintaining them.
