[4:20 PM] New Facility Center Opens Up At Apple Market Center in Atlanta
by Staff

Sterling Ledet and Associates have announced with Apple that they will be opening a new training facility in the Apple MArket Center in Atlanta. The facility will offer the opportunity for users to check out some of the latest Mac hardware from Apple, ICE, and other manufacturers. According to Sterling Ledet and Associates:

Sterling Ledet and Associates has opened their newest hands-on training facility in the Apple Computer market center in Atlanta. With the addition of this state of the art facility, Ledet and Associates will be able to offer users at all skill levels, the opportunity to learn the latest cutting-edge technology in digital video, Internet and web design, and graphic arts/publishing applications.

Users who choose to take advantage of this opportunity should prepare to be impressed. This new training facility boasts Apple's latest professional level workstation, the Power Macintosh G4, and the revolutionary new Studio Display LCD monitor. Each workstation is fully equipped with these, as well as Wacom interface tablets, offering the optimum learning environment in which to hone their skills.

The Grand Opening celebration is scheduled for Monday , December 6th at the Apple market center in Dunwoody, GA between 1:30 - 6:30 pm. The Apple market center is located at 1100 Abernathy Rd., ste. 1800, bldg. 500.

In addition to the open house celebration, Adobe Systems, and Macromedia will join Apple in providing product demonstrations for leading software applications in graphic arts & publishing, Internet design & e-commerce, and digital video.

Additionally, sponsoring partners including hardware sales & support provider Demographics, memory component supplier Microtech International, and video graphics accelerator card provider ICE, will have products available to view and sample.

There is no charge for admittance to this event and refreshments will be served. Professionals and amateurs alike are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to see some of the latest in technology available from these top providers of products and services.

You can find more information on the event, including registration information, at Apple's web site. Alternately, you can call 1.800.895.4853.

The Mac Observer Spin: This is a great direction for Apple to move in. There has long been a lack of Mac training facilities and training courses around the country. In fact, the mere fact that one has to be trained to use Windows 9x and Windows NT seems to have actually increased the desirability of using those systems. As backwards as it seems, Apple can only benefit by having more high-profile training facilities. The only negative is that Apple has very few Market Centers and only in the largest metropolitan areas. Hopefully Apple will work with companies like Sterling Ledet and Associates to open up other training centers in other areas.
