Apple Macs dominate Amazon’s computer best-sellers list; hold 7 of top 8 sales spots

“Microsoft Corp’s first major operating system release in over half a decade has seemingly done little to spur PC sales at the Internet’s largest online retailer, where Macs continue to dominate sales charts,” AppleInsider reports.

AppleInsider reports, “Two days after the consumer release of Windows Vista, Apple’s Mac line of personal computers handily maintained its lead atop Amazon.com’s best selling ‘Computers & PC Hardware’ sales chart.”

“In all, Macs accounted for 7 out of the top 8 sales slots on the hourly-updated rankings, including the top 5 spots. The top-selling Vista-enabled PC was a 13-inch Sony VIAO notebook, which captured the 6th spot. Vista notebook offerings from Toshiba and HP followed, filling the 9th and 10th spots, respectively,” AppleInsider reports.

  1. Meaningless. Who buys computers from Amazon anyway, especially when the 2 largest PC manufacturers don’t sell there (Dell and HP). Apple computers have been top selling computers on Amazon for a long time, it means only marginally more than the fact that Macs are the top selling computers at the Apple store in all honesty.

  2. pog is right. Nobody buys computers from Amazon, which is why we actually have sales figures for people buying computers on Amazon. Geez, but no matter what subject comes up on internet forums, there always seems to be an “expert” with imaginary cold hard data to back up his assertions. (Insert rolly eyes here.)
