Tim Cook: We’re Selling More iPads Than PC Makers Are Selling All Of Their Computers Combined [iPhone 5 Event]

Tim Cook is going through the preliminary statistics of Apple’s business right now, which is usually where people snooze in these events, but this number really stuck out to us: Tim Cook says that the iPad has sold “more iPads than any PC manufacturer sold of their entire PC line.”

Read that quote again. It’s absolutely nuts. There are 84 million iPads out there, as of June. And Apple has done this while still growing the Mac 15% year-over-year compared to just two percent year-over-year growth for PCs.

Apple rules the computer world.
