I am moving to New Zealand in august, and I have to admit to being an Apple man.

What stores in New Zealand have the best service for Apple products? I am assuming Apple doesn't have their own stores there yet?

I see that Harvey Norman sell some Apple products, but they don't seem to carry the whole lineup, and since they are a store with lots of different products I am a bit weary to have much knowledge they have of their products. 

But the most important thing is not necessarily their knowledge of the products, but more how good they are at support and customer service.

Thanks for any advice on where to go for Apple products in New Zealand.

Norwegian soon to be Kiwi.

I am moving to Napier and will stay there a year (or so) and then on to Wellington. I see iStore is only in Auckland. But they ship all over NZ I would guess?

If you're buying in Auckland, ├╝bertec in Parnell are great.

Cheers,

Support and customer service will not usually be done by a retailer, the products will usually get sent off it a problem. The retailer will also often have limited support and knowledge. Yobee or whatever they call themselves these days, used to be the main seller and supporter in NZ, but last time I went into their store, their range and sales attentiveness wasn't that great, but to be fair, to keep a lot of stock on the floor is expensive.

So maybe the solution is to buy directly with Apple on apple.co.nz?

Yes, but you can sometimes get good deals in NZ stores for some things like ipods, which you can't usually get from apple directly.
