Apple iPad is negatively affecting notebook sales at Best Buy

Internal estimates at Best Buy suggest the iPad has cut into some notebook sales by as much as 50 percent, reports AppleInsider.

Probably this has made Best Buy change its retail strategy, who announced Tuesday that the iPad will be coming this fall to all 1,093 Best Buy retail stores.

Best Buy has reported a 61 percent jump in profit Tuesday, as sales shifted away from big-screen televisions and PCs toward hand-held gadgets and consumer devices; with increased sales of smartphones and portable computers(especially the Apple iPad) contributing to the surprise profit.

Best Buy wants to heavily promote Apple ipad for the upcoming holiday season. Promotion focus will also be one Amamzon's Kindle. --------
