Best Buy Co. Inc. said that it will no longer sell Macintosh
computers at its 284 stores citing intense competition in the PC
market. Best Buy reached a mutual decision with Apple Computer to no
longer sell the computers as a result of "an ever changing and
fiercely competitive PC market, as well as a time of redirection for
Apple," a spokeswoman for Best Buy said. Best Buy, which has stores
in 32 states, will continue to sell Macintosh software. The Macintosh
systems account for less than 0.5% of the specialty retailer's
computer category, which includes PCs and home office equipment.
Apple was not immediately available for comment.
