Best Buy announced plans to sell more Macs than ever this year

Katie Marshall reports for AppleInsider that Best Buy gave some insight into its plans for the immediate future at the CES 2008 and it’s good news for potential buyers of our favorite computing platform. Best Buy executives commented that the company plans to double the number of stores carrying Macs, a number that is currently pegged in the vicinity of 230-270 retail locations, in the next couple of months.

This means that by the end of February 2008, roughly 500 of the 900 total Best Buy stores will be selling the best computers money can buy (see what I did there?). We’re, of course, glad to hear this latest development: the more Macs you see on store shelves, the better an indication it is of their growing popularity. And that can only be good, right?
