MarketWatch reported on Tuesday that Thomas Wiesel Partners analyst Kevin Hunt is telling clients that sales of the Mac mini and high-end iPods "have slowed down considerably."
Hunt wrote: ""Our checks suggest Mac Mini sales are somewhat slow, as consumers realize that price including monitor is no bargain." However, he continues to see strong demand for the G5 iMac, the new PowerBooks and the iPod mini and iPod shuffle. Hunt is maintaining his Peer Perform rating on the stock, with a range of US$26 to $38.
When requested, a Thomas Wiesel Partners media spokeswoman refused to provide the complete report to media outlets.
