Best Buy Test Marketing Macs Should Boost Apple

Electronics retailer Best Buy (BBY) announced yesterday that they have begun test marketing Macintosh computers in some of its stores. A potential distribution deal with one of the largest retailers of computers, combined with new software that can run Windows, sure bodes well for Apple’s Mac division. You have to like the odds that people buy Macs over Gateways at retail.

Investors seem to be focusing on iPod sales right now, as the stock is down significantly to $57 and change. While not inexpensive, shares of AAPL seem to have more room to run than most tech stocks.
