Best Buy expanding its Apple lineup

Best Buy which already started carrying Mac Mini's and iPods has started to promote and sell other Apple products such as the Intel-based Macs.

According to ZDNet -

  • Best Buy, North America's largest consumer electronics retailer, and Apple are flogging the new MacBook units, as well as the MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and iMac systems, according to Samir Bhavnani, an analyst with Current Analysis. The Mac maker has prominent displays and units available in several Best Buy stores throughout the United States, he said.
  • Best Buy has been selling Apple's popular iPod music players and Mac Minis for some time, but the latest move represents a major expansion of Apple's retail efforts with Best Buy, as well as those outside of its own retail stores, Bhavnani said. [...] The move also shows that Apple is very confident about the inventory situation regarding its new Intel-based products, he said.

Best Buy started carrying Mac Mini's last year in its retail outlets in order to promote Apple products.
