Apple Laptop Sales Number Grow Marginally

Hi all, this week Windows 8 has launched and a raft of new apple features and products have launched. Despite the products and features and the way that Apple has increased efforts to dominate the market its laptop sales only increased by about 1% in year over year sales.

That is suprising to say the least. Engadet says, “A bit more surprising are the company’s Mac sales numbers which, despite a new slate of MacBooks, saw year-over-year growth of only two percent for sales of an even four million in the quarter — compared to growth of seven percent in Q2.” (source below). That is an interesting number given the effort that Apple is putting behind the laptop/desktop group.

It will be interesting to see the sales from the first quarter of 2013 and see if Apple is able to pick up a greater chunk of the laptop/desktop market share after the holiday season that has had a chance to run its course.
