Apple MacBooks, more than any other single brand, populate the rankings of the priciest laptops at Best Buy, affirming Apple’s reputation as a purveyor of elite computers, according to a “CNET” report (http://news.cnet.com/8301-13924_3-20009934-64.html?tag=mncol).
“The fact that Apple dominates the upper-price tier at Best Buy is no great surprise, but the MacBook pricing takes on a new meaning when you look at the numbers,” the article says. “Out of roughly 200 models — Windows and Apple — listed on Best Buy’s site, there are 12 MacBooks –used generically here to refer to the MacBook and aluminum-clad MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Half of those 12 MacBooks are in the highest price category.”
Altogether, about a dozen elite Windows and Apple models cost more than US$1,699. Once again, about half are MacBooks.
