    The PC world near me has never sold mac minis. Its either an update, end of life or just PC world being rubbish.

    PC World are extremely retarded when in comes to Macs. They know nothing about them, have only older generation models (collecting dust) and if you ask about any of them they always try and push a PC down your throat.

    Try it. Go into PC World and start asking questions about Macs and the ones (if any) they have on display. I guarantee you they will try and lead you over to the PCs and force them down your neck.

    I used to do it for a bit of fun when on my dinner break. After a while though they caught on. :D

    For them to be out of Minis means absolutely nothing. They probably think its a DVD burner or something.

    When MacWarehouse and Jigsaw run out, then you can start wondering.

    They have plenty in stock though :D

    I believe the reason is because they get higher commission for certain products... like some PC manufactures, my favorite mac reseller is john lewis personally, i only wish they let you order custom machines ;)

    True but you still need to know about something to be able to sell it even if the margins are smaller. :p
