A quick piece over at Arstechnica reports that the recently-released Apple TV has begun appearing in various Target retail locations. Photos sent in and posted on MacRumors confirm that the device is in stock and Apple managed to get the units in a bit faster than expected.
In a more surprising turn of events, the Apple TV has also turned up at assorted Costco locations with an arstechnica reader e-mailing the site and reporting the units in stock in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. The units are priced at US$289.99 and the retailer won’t be charging a restocking fee upon return. “I believe the old, unlimited return policy would apply. The new 90-day thing is actually limited to a few categories of items,” claims reader Dan Ciskey, who doesn’t believe the revised return policy applies to the Apple TV.
The presence of the Apple TV may be a test run of sorts, as the units haven’t been added to the retailer’s web site and a search for them turns up the standard TVs and HDTVs that are being sold.
If anyone has additional information about this, let us know.
