A new study from NPD Group found that Mac sales were flat year-over-year during July, and if things keep going at this rate, Apple’s domestic Mac sales will be down 5% year over year for the September quarter.
Even though Apple just introduced a new lineup of MacBook Airs, the dip in sales can hardly be a surprise to anyone who’s been watching the PC industry get cannibalized by the iPad. During its last earnings call, Apple announced total Mac sales dropped to 3.8 million versus 4 million in Q3 2012, but domestic sales fell 12%.
A new lineup of Macs may help boost sales at the tail-end of the year, but analyst Gene Munster predicts that the Mac will account for a mere 11% of Apple’s business in 2014, and only 9% by 2015, no matter how badass that new Mac Pro is.
