Apple notebooks now make up 12% of U.S. market

— 3:27 PM on July 21, 2006

In Apple's latest quarterly report, the company reveals that its share of the notebook market climbed to a whopping 12% in June. Compared to January, Apple's notebook market share has doubled, CFO Peter Oppenheimer stated. The market share jump coincides with what Oppenheimer says was a "fantastic" quarter, during which Mac and iPod sales climbed 12% and 32%, respectively. Apple CEO Steve Jobs said 75% of the new Macs were outfitted with Intel processors.

This report comes as Dell issues a warning that its latest quarterly results will fall short of expectations. CNet says the PC giant's sales have slowed due to increased competition from HP and complaints about poor customer service. Dell itself blames slow market growth and aggressive pricing for the poor results.
