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