The British like Macs

Apple sales are strong in the UK according to Macworld UK. iPod nanos and shuffles are leaping off the shelf and the high demand for iPods means that some items are now in short supply. Even Mac Pro sales have gone up in anticipation of the release of Adobe CS3. Macworld suggests that the demand for entry-level MacBooks will actually exceed the supply this quarter.

And then there's AppleTV. I'm not sure why Apple TV is such a good seller--pre-orders nearly match the anticipated initial supplies--because there's still no iTunes video store yet for the UK. Perhaps hope springs eternal or people really want to watch iPhoto slideshows or listen to their music on their TV or something like that. UK readers: what's your take on this?
