The iPods and iPhones are Hits, but it’s the Macs that are King

CLIFFosakaJAPANA funny thing has happened over the past couple of quarters. While Apple has been firing on all cylinders, and the iPhone is selling hundreds of thousands of units a month, its Macintosh business is the hottest line of all. The iPod and iPhone are hits, but they’re not the company’s hottest line, says Fortune’s Brent Schlender.[…] Thanks to CLIFFosakaJAPAN for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 27Diggs).

What other users say about this:

kelly: Interesting quotes from the article:

“Apple has a 15 percent market share of PCs sold at retail and online, according to NPD.”

“[Apple broke the] 5 percent share barrier, according to IDC.”

“Apple’s U.S. Mac sales have grown at triple the rate of the rest of the PC industry since last fall”

“[Apple is in] Third place in the U.S., behind Dell and Hewlett-Packard.”

“Apple is growing faster than its competitors because it improves its hardware and software more often than anyone else.” (No not because of status symbol or because ‘their computers are pretty’ as some of the asshats in this forum like to say.
