Hello Mac Forums!
I am from the East Coast and I recently moved to Los Angeles, CA.
I am looking for a place where I can buy a new Mac, get my Mac repaired and also go talk to someone about what I'm looking for and going to be doing on my new computer. A place where at LEAST one person on staff seriously knows about major applications such as Logic Pro and Adobe Illustrator, After Effects etc.
There was a place in NYC called TekServe that was just like this... Leaps and bounds better than the Apple store

There are Apple Stores in the LA area and of course a myriad of authorized dealers. My experience has been the opposite of yours. My local Apple Store is the only place I would take my Macs for service as they are knowledgeable and their customer service is top notch. I'm sure there are great places other than an Apple Store; I just haven't found any here in the Dallas - Fort Worth area of Texas.
