During the second quarter of 2007, Apple nearly beat out Gateway to become the number three PC maker. More Mac sales are expected this quarter, perhaps due to a halo effect from the iPhone.[…] Thanks to obeezy for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 56Diggs).
What other users say about this:
obeezy: Yeah I think their notebooks are what really did it. The Macbook in particular. The iPhone did bring in people that would have never gotten a Mac otherwise though.
netburnr: I know for me it was the new Santa Rosa chipset and the HD screen on the 17 MBP. Keep building awesome laptops and it will keep up. Good job Apple.
atdigg: Nah, I think it’s the halo effect of Vista crappiness.
