Rumor: iPads to permeate Genius Bar instead of MacsWhenever you walk into any Apple retail store regardless of the country, the Genius Bar segment that is operated by a bunch of Apple experts will normally have a row of MacBook Pros to help the Apple staff diagnose problems, place orders for replacement parts as well as schedule repairs for customers who walk in. Heck, the software on these MacBook Pros will also let the Genius Bar staff figure out just how much warranty you have left on your device – but considering how wildly successful the iPad has been (not to mention its sequel), there are rumors floating around that the MacBook Pros won’t last too long along the Genius Bar counter.

It seems that from this week onwards, the iPad 2 will take over from where the MacBook Pro left off, and fret not customers, the iPad 2s installed will be more than capable of handling all the queries and information retrieval that the MacBook Pros were previously capable of. Apart from that, since the iPad 2 is a whole lot smaller than the MacBook Pro, that translates to more customers being able to be served simultaneously
