Apple Computer Sales Slowing, No Discounting on Mac Books, Yet

Over the past week, The Channel Checkers surveyed 15 Apple stores to track sales of iPod and Macs along with business trends at Apple stores in the U.S. We asked if the stores were discounting iPods in February and 73% said they were not while 27% said they were discounting some models specifically iPod Nano’s. The top selling computer was said to be the Mac Book Pro according to 73% of respondents. 66% of respondents told us they had sold fewer computers in the past month while the other third thought sales of computers were rising in February versus January. Despite the appearance of a slowdown in Apple computer sales, only 13% of respondents said they were discounting Mac’s while 87% said they were not, suggesting demand is strong enough to maintain full pricing.
