“There’s really no other way to say this: The Mac is kicking ass,” John Paczkowski reports for AllThingsD. “Not only is its growth outpacing that of the broader market, it’s doing it in virtually every segment from government to enterprise.”
Paczkowski reports, “March marked the 20th consecutive quarter that Mac shipment growth exceeded that of the PC market.”
“Mac shipments grew 27.7 percent in March, a period that saw a 1.2 percent decline in total PC shipments, according to IDC data reported by Needham analyst Charlie Wolf,” Paczkowski reports. “And that growth occurred in every single major regional market.”
MacDailyNews Take: And, did those “PC” shipments also include Apple’s Mac numbers? If so, back out those Mac numbers to get the best possible angle of the ass–kicking.
“In Europe, Mac sales were up 10 percent year over year, while the PC market was down 17.5 percent; in Asia they were up 69.4 percent, while the PC market was up just 8.8 percent,” Paczkowski reports. “And in Japan, Macs were up 21.1 percent in a PC market that declined 16.1 percent.”
