“In Apple’s (AAPL) most recent fiscal year ended in September, the company’s Macintosh line of personal computers generated revenue of $21.783 billion, representing 20.12% of Apple’s $108.249 billion in reported revenue,” Robert Paul Leitao writes for Seeking Alpha. “The Mac’s $4.304 billion gain in revenue during the fiscal year represented 10% of Apple’s $43 billion in revenue growth.”
“The graphs and table data in this article illustrate and delineate Apple’s unrelenting Mac attack on the PC market. For over five consecutive years the rate of growth in Mac unit sales has exceeded the rate of unit sales growth for the PC industry as a whole,” Leitao writes. “In only one quarter of the most recent twelve fiscal quarters has Apple experienced a year-over-year unit sales decline. In FY 2011 Macintosh unit sales rose about 22.5% to 16.735 million units following a 31% rise in unit sales in FY 2010.”
Leitao writes, “In the current quarter ending in December, Macintosh unit sales may reach 5 million units for the first time in the company’s history, breaking the unit sales record of 4.894 million units sold in the recent September quarter.”
