Apple Edges HP by Almost 5% in Shipping Numbers
Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 05:00 AM
"Apple is out-shipping traditional PC vendors by a wide margin on the back of strong iPad sales, a marketing research firm has found."
And the margin over number 2 HP was almost 5%, as Apple shipped 15 million iPads along with 5 million Macs, which made up 17% of the 120 million total shipped globally in the 4th quarter. HP total was 12.7% in comparison. Overall, if you take the iPad and other tablets out of the picture, PC sales are down 0.4%. Sounds to me like if you aren't in the tablet business, you might have cause for concern.
