    I went to the grand opening of a new Best Buy in Manahawkin, NJ today. When I was in there I was looking for the macs. When I finally found them all that was displayed was an iMac and a 15 inch Macbook Pro

    I thought this was odd seeing the store just opened, when I looked next to the macbook pro there were slots that were empty for 3 other laptops

    Could this mean that new macbooks are on there way, and that because the best buy just opened they are waiting for the new units

    Anyone else see this before

    The new Macs were launched at that store this morning and sold out before you came. You might have seen Steve Jobs head out the back door. :p

    And to think I just joked about such a scenario in another thread. :cool:

    Anyway, I am sure it was due to lack of current stock specific to Best Buy and not a sign of new models coming in the immediate future. :)

    Look on the homepage of MacRumors.com...Best Buy has been told by Apple that they won't be receiving/ or will receive fewer notebooks, which means new ones are coming out soon. Best Buy probably doesn't have stock at that location because it's new and theres no point putting old stock there just to have it sit there when new ones come out.

    I'm not sure if it applies to other Best Buys, but my local Best Buy, upon inquiry, stated that it doesn't carry all Apple computers because some of them are considered "special products" (ie, the Mac Pro, 30" ACD, and surprisingly the Mac Mini).

    Yeah, mine only carriers laptops and iMacs. They just started doing this though, about 5-6 months ago.
