True, but I wonder if that's part of the list of good reasons to not sell Apple products. It appears that Apple doesn't care about independent resellers, so they only get stock when most of the demand has already been satisfied, so the independents get starved out. I wonder if there are any fair trade laws against this sort of thing, I wish, but I haven't heard of any such action.
