“People are willing to disproportionately spend for these devices because they are becoming so important to their lives,” Best Buy Chief Executive Brian Dunn said in an interview. “We are really positioning the company to be the place where people can come and see the best of the connected world.”

The iPad was expected to make an impact on netbook sales, but it seems that notebook demand has also dropped, although from what we have heard previously it is sales of Windows based notebooks as Apple’s MacBook sales continue to rise.
