Retailers are faced with a feast or famine situation, trying to sell Apple's new iMac computers.
First, they were unable to meet customer demands for the stylish new computer. Now inventory is piling up, and the PC market is only getting slower.
One distributor has 1,200 iMacs in stock, and managed to sell 72 to retailers. "That level of inventory is definitely disconcerting," an analyst said. Consumers seem much more interested in buying laptops than PCs.
