Best Buy considers Macs
Best Buy is considering selling Apple's full line of computers in its stores, which now only carries Apple's iPod and accessories for the portable media players. Seven Best Buy stores are currently selling Macs, and the company is considering expanding Mac sales across the chain, according to Best Buy Senior Vice President for Merchandising David Morrish. Morrish said the Macs are being sold by Best Buy employees who have been trained by Apple, adding that Best Buy is watching to see whether the computers can be sold profitably, and whether Best Buy employees can provide the level of customer service that Apple customers are used to in Apple's own retail stores, according to a report from The Associated Press.
