The figures that come to us from 9to5mac are really to be taken seriously. According to the data provided by the journalist Joe Wilcox in a recent chat, 47.7% of the desktop computers that have been sold during the last October were Apple iMacs .
These positive figures for Cupertino’s company may be due to the drop in sales of PCs in that month due to the proximity of the release of Windows 7 (users did not want to buy a computer with Windows Vista so soon after the release of its successor), but also we must count the drop in sales of Apple’s desktop during that October due to the proximity of the launch of the new models of 21.5 and 27 inches.
The fact that Apple manages to get half of the desktops sold in the United States to be iMacs is something that directly clashes with the small percentage that we, the Macs, represent with respect to the rest of the global market. Good figures for Apple, no doubt. It remains to be seen if sooner or later they will achieve the same with the laptop sector.
