I thought this was interesting - free iPad use in Lexus dealer's waiting room

I went with a friend to look at a new Lexus and besides demo-ing the car, the salesperson took us on a tour of the dealership facility. The customer waiting room has cappuccino, wi-fi (duh) and at each table between two seats, an iPad for customer use while waiting. Not sure it's worth the 20M premium she paid for a Lexus SUV that's about the same size as my Honda CRV though…

My husband and I had to go to our accountant's office a few weeks ago, and they had a loaner iPad for use by people who were in the waiting room. The receptionist offered it to me, but I told her I had brought my own. grinning smiley

20M? Your friend way overpaid on her Lexus. smiling smiley

My wife's uncle sells cars at a Lexus dealership; we get good pricing on our cars. The Lexus RX350 is a very nice vehicle (although I was fonder of the previous model than I am of the current).



It is what it is.

Bought a car with my wife last Sunday at the local BMW/VW dealership. Brought my iPad, and I had half the weekend skeleton crew wanting to look at it and play with it. I guess BMW doesn't treat its customers or salesmen as nicely as the Lexus folks.

This story illustrates one of the great appeals of the iPad - you can give it to someone who has never used one before and in an extremely shot period of time, they are working independently.

But you knew that and were just trying to be funny, right? I s'pose I could have said 20K, but then someone would say "20 Kilometers more than your CRV?"

Geez, a guy has to be so literal here! old fogey smiley

M = 1000

If this were a forum in Europe, or populated by a large number of Europeans, that would be a common assumption.

Given the actual demographic, and the common use of K = 1000, I'd say being literal is not a bad way to go.

So what you really meant to write was

or

XX M

or perhaps

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

...right?
