Apple third distributor
Bell Microproducts is now Apple's in the United States. The company said Tuesday it would distribute Apple's Xserve rack-mount servers and RAID solutions. Clearwater, Fla.-based Tech Data has been carrying Apple's entire line since the companies signed a distribution deal in early 2000. And Ingram Micro, which signed with Apple in 1992, is currently the Cupertino, Calif., computer maker's largest distributor, accounting for about 70 percent of Apple's products sold through distribution, said a spokesperson for the Santa Ana, Calif.-based distributor.
