MacDailyNews Note: As always, the actual percentage numbers are not as important as the trends shown since all “market share” reports have unique measurement sources. Net Applications, for example measures 40,000 corporate and ecommerce websites — how many of which are restricted to WIndows and/or IE, if any, we do not know. Again, what’s important is the trend (and consistent data points). The trend shows Apple’s Macintosh ascending.

  1. First, as people buy new Intel Macs and throw out their old PPC ones, the number of Intels in the world will eventually overtake the number of PPCs in the world (after, supposedly, one generation of computer-ownership.) Also, if Mac growth is really happening so quickly, the number of Intel Macs is increasing even as they don’t replace any PPC ones.
