They took the Apple tab off their homepage, too.

Anyone notice this? I wonder why?

1. Maybe it wasn't selling well for them.

2. Apple no longer wanted them as an authorized dealer.

3. They didn't feel like Apple products fit into their product mix.

4. They couldn't compete with the ClubMacs, MacMalls and Amazons of the world on pricing.

Another option is that they couldn't meet Apples reseller commitment.

Apple probably wouldn't cut a good deal for them to sell at lower prices! Cool

Actually this is the answer because when doing distribution deals as a authorized reseller you have a quota of minimum annual dollars to make. Problem is couldn't do a lot with pricing and free shipping that equals profit. Plus possibly tough to compete with other e-tailers.
