Really, an experience center? Personally, I'm often amazed at how many purchases I see when I visit an Apple Store. Those stores are built to move product and from the anecdotal evidence that is what they do. For non-trivial purchases (hundreds of dollars) I don't see physical stores going extinct. Yes, I buy from Amazon sometimes (my first iPod touch 2G was a reconditioned unit from Amazon) but only because there was an Apple Store at a convenient distance for support.
