Appliance and consumer electronics retailer Best Buy Co. Inc. is testing the selling of Apple Computer Inc.'s full line of computers in its stores. The retailer only currently sells Apple's iPod music player and accessories.

According to an AP report, Best Buy has added Apple computers in seven stores and it's considering expanding Mac sales across the chain, Best Buy Senior Vice President for Merchandising David Morrish said.

Best Buy stopped selling Apple computers in 1998 because of slow sales, and soon after Apple pulled out of most retailers. It later rebuilt its retail operation by opening its own stores, and now has 133 in the U.S., compared with 754 for Best Buy.

Morrish said Best Buy is evaluating if the computers can sell at a profit, and whether Best Buy employees can provide the level of customer service that customers are used to getting in an Apple store.
