Apple Store Scamming

STJ just called me from the apple store to get computer advice.
She was trying to decide whether to get an ibook or a macbook. She said they were the same price. WTF?

Then, she said they told her they were going to charge her $80 to install bootcamp on her macbook, and that if she waited until later she would have to erase everything on her computer. What the crap?

From the bootcamp page:
The software also helps you set aside hard drive space for the Windows installation, without moving any of your Mac files around. Just drag the intuitive slider to choose the size that’s right for you. Boot Camp also helps you remove the Windows partition, should you so desire.

Very late update: Apparently it wasn't the apple store, just a computer store that sells macs. That makes me feel much better, to know it wasn't The Apple Store trying to pull shit like that.
