MacDailyNews Note: Apple no longer breaks out models into categories such as iMac, Power Mac, etc. and instead reports only on desktop and portable totals. Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer stated during the Conference Call that “Mac unit growth significantly exceeded overall PC market as a whole over last three quarters.”

  1. 1.18 million Macs sold.

    Approximately 14 million total PCs sold (extrapolated figure 51.4 million PCs sold last year, take 1/4 and multiply by 10% growth).

    Macs = 8.5% market share.

  2. It’s more interesting to me about the surge in desktops but not in laptops. Over the past year we’ve seen a lot of desktop upgrades (Mac mini, the iMac, etc.). But we’ve seen little in terms of PB.

    I guess what Apple really needs right now is a refresh to their PB line. I hope they do that first with the new Pentiums.
