“Apple Computer plans to start selling its Macintosh computers at certain Best Buy locations, CNET News.com has learned. The Cupertino, Calif.-based computer maker plans next month to launch a pilot program with Best Buy in which the retailer will carry various Mac models at “a few” locations. Best Buy has been selling Apple’s iPod since September of last year,” reports Ina Fried for CNET News.com.
Fried reports, “Some Best Buy locations will also have Apple representatives inside the store, similar to a program that Apple has with CompUSA. Apple executives have praised the CompUSA program as helping to boost its retail sales results. An Apple representative declined to say which Best Buy locations will carry Macs, but the program appears to be starting small.” Full story here.
