Cambridge-based online Mac dealer MacLine has gone bust. It ceased trading last night, according to UK publication MacUser.

MacLine says it is close to agreeing a rescue deal with a third party and will issue a statement tomorrow.

The collapse of the Cambridge-based reseller comes one month after London Mac dealer Mygate went into liquidation. Mygate's assets have already been sold, to Guildford-based Apple dealer Cancom.

The demise of MacLine and Mygate reduces the UK online Mac reseller market to five main players: MacWarehouse; Computer Warehouse; Jigsaw; Cancom; Gordon Harwood Computers.

Mygate piled up debts of £1 million despite a turnover of around £6 million. ®
