Apple Sales Strong for Holiday

Forbes reports on Piper Jaffray analyst research on Apple's sales strength this holiday season.

While retailers are said to have noted that some customers are awaiting the release of the announced Intel-based Macs, that "resellers that are seeing this trend say that it is limited to only a handful of customers."

Meanwhile, iMac sales are stronger than expected and Apple has managed to keep reasonable stock of the iPod at hand for retailers.

All eyes point to Macworld San Francisco for potential updates. The keynote address will be given by Steve Jobs on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 at 9:00 a.m PST.
