Apple Earns 8% PC Market Share on 34% YoY Growth — Gartner

By

Gartner_Q1_2010

Apple sold an impressive 1.4 million Macs in the first quarter of 2010, says research firm Gartner, recording very healthy 34% year-on-year growth. The PC market as a whole grew about 25% — the biggest first quarter volume ever, Gartner says. Apple is the fifth-largest PC maker in the U.S. with an 8% share of the PC market. Gartner attributes the massive Mac sales to “hype” around the iPad, but it’s more likely the ever-popular MacBooks and new iMacs, which were refreshed before the holidays.

“Apple created major attention with its media tablet, the iPad, which launched in April. The hype around the iPad certainly added positive sentiment to the company as PC shipments. Early estimates showed that Apple grew 34 percent in the U.S. market.”

Meanwhile, rival research firm IDC released significantly different estimates. According to IDC, Mac shipments were 1.13 million units, earning Apple a 6.4% market share. IDC also pegs Apple as the fifth-largest U.S. PC maker, but estimates Apple’s year-over-year growth is just 8.3 percent, and market share is 7.2%. Both Gartner and IDC warn that their numbers are preliminary and final numbers will be “available soon to clients.”

     Nice blog would like to add that NSE and BSE are one of the most superior stock exchanges  of India. If you wish to earn good money from the share market then you need to understand  the functionality of the stock market properly.

     Indian stock market offers lot of earning opportunities still many less traders earn from  it. Now the question is who earns from the share trading? To be honest only those who rely  on stock research as no one can earn big by speculating in the market.
