*** Best Buy will no longer sell Macintosh computers

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.
