Best Computer Store (2013)
240 Del Monte Center, Monterey
The stunning white mecca of iThis and iThat in the Del Monte Center is always hopping. From Beats by Dre headphones to shiny new iPad minis, the Apple store is more than a hangout for gadget geeks (but it’s that, too). Techies in blue shirts are on hand to assist and answer any and every question about the products; hour-long workshops and one-on-one help with Apple devices come free; and, if it isn’t payday yet, browsing is just fine too. Just make sure to log off your Facebook before you leave.
