The chief executive officer of Best Buy, Brian Dunn said that the launch of iPad in the market had cut the sales of notebook computers by almost 50% at Best Buy stores. He has told the statement to the Wall Street Journal for a story which was released on 14th of this month.
The company has announced to start sale of the iPad from 26th of September in its entire 1093 store across the country which is available in its 673 stores now. This news came as a shocking one for the entire technology world, manufacturing and retail industry.
The notebook sales have slipped down remarkably after the launch of iPad in the market. Some of the market experts did not agree with the statement of the CEO of Best Buy and said "Laptops, Desktops and iPad have their own place in the market and none of them can be replaced by another".
They said consumers would be attracted towards the product they needed for. Most of the retail chains in the world are willing to keep the iPad in their stores because of the rising demand of the product.
