Okay, you skeptics listen up: Mac OS X will be in stores and for sale this weekend. Several Apple specialists, who asked not to be named, told MacCentral that they already have the product in stock.
Some received their first retail copies early this week. Others received large quantities Tuesday and Wednesday.
“We received 250 copies on Tuesday as expected,” one reseller told MacCentral.
In addition, several MacCentral readers have noted that some Staples stores not only received their copies, but have them on the shelf for sale.
Many companies are planning big parties to celebrate the OS X launch though Apple is playing it relatively low key. MacMall, Elite Computers & Software, TechSource, and others are planning special events. There will also be special in-store events throughout the US and UK.
