Went into a best buy store yesterday and most of the desk top PC's were in disarray with missing parts and sloppy ads. Apple on the other hand had a nice separate stand/area for its iMac desk tops and it clearly showed upscale (even in Best Buy) versus the other location of competition.
Same thing with the iPad and iPad mini. Separate location that was clean, out in the open that grabs your attention. Other competitor laptops were all lined up but further in the back of the store. If Apple can get prime real estate (location) in a Best Buy - at every story - look out. Looks like a great Christmas for Apple since its products are now starting to sell into the best quarter of the year for the company.
Someone would have to explain to me what Apple give Best Buy for every Apple product sold versus selling Apple products in a Apple iStore. With that said, the more locations Apple can show their products the better. I believe there are only 400 Apple iStores around the world but assume way more Best Buys. In any case that for post wise. Its obvious that Apple has best beach front property at BB.
