Apple is looking to open 20 new retail stores in the United Kingdom. The company, who recently overtook Dell as the prime manufacturer in Western Europe's educational sector, wants to open stores in the 20 best retail locations in the UK as soon as they can.

The report speculates that Glasgow and Edinburgh may be two cities in which Apple hopes to make inroads -- a move that would pit Apple-owned stores in head-on competition with Scotsys's own independent retail stores in those regions.
