Apple's new season of iLife demo days have been well received by attendees.

The company has been working with its local resellers to offer free training in the use of its consumer entry digital media suite, which includes: iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and iTunes.

Cheltenham's Western Computers hosted its demo day on June 17 in the Beechwood Shopping Centre. A demo day attendee remarked: "It was a great experience to see how a Mac really worked, a lot of fear had been taken away at how easy it really all is compared to my PC at home."

A spokesman for the reseller described the day as: "A great event. It allowed people who had never before used a Mac to visit us, use one and play with the software that ships with it. It really does show that making things simple for the customer can make the whole experience a lot more enjoyable and less frustrating."

Western Computers also had two actors in Wallace and Gromit costumes attend the event. The shop also gave away five 1GB iPod nanos, a 30GB iPod video with camera connection kit, and copies of Wallace and Gromit's 'Curse of the Warerabbit' movie.

On June 24 the show visits Leicester with KRCS. This day takes place at the Shires Shopping Centre (9.30am-5pm).

Apple's iLife tour ends with three days at the Daily Telegraph House and Garden Fair, Olympia (June 29-July 2), in conjunction with the Square Group.
