"2010 was a breakout year for Apple's iPad. When it first came out, we dared to question it, but one year later the device is undoubtedly a success. Today, statistics from DisplaySearch show that the iPad was not only a success, but also propelled Apple to the top of the list of mobile PC makers."
10.2 million units shipped by Apple in Q4 2010. These numbers include laptops and iPads, but not mobile phones. Competition is arriving on the scene, but Apple has a pretty impressive lead. This percentage is, of course, certainly bolstered by iPad sales, but according to the story, notebook shipments "widely exceed the industry average growth rate" as well. I'm looking forward to what Apple has in store over the next few months to try to keep the competition in check.
