Actually, that's year to year. Apple had gotten to 8% and then gave back 6 points in one quarter.
Toshiba is getting close to overtaking Apple without them though.
sorry, but i can not believe that apple really wants to have market share. why not? well, if they REALLY would like to have market share, they'd have to put the price tag of the mac mini to seducing 349 US$, or the mac book price tag to 699 US$.
i fear that apple is actually more interested in generating money, and with a cheap product you can't.
Making money actually actually requires people buying their stuff which equates to marketshare. Also, since Apple does use higher margins every sales helps the bottom line a bit, but the opposite is also true. Every lost sale hurts Apple more than the competition.
That might not take a whole lot as there hasn't been much innovating in the computer area lately, the iPhone and IPod lines seem to be getting all that. The Mini has been using the same case for 4 years, the cheese grater is almost six, the iMac has been updated style wise but uses a squeezed and feature robbed version of 5 year old iMac, and Macbooks have gotten so thin that Apple had to create an entirely new connector to prevent them from losing most of their ports. I do have to hand it to them on the glass keyboard and the hicap battery in the 17" though and the cool features the Mac Pro team has had to dream up to get around Ive's refusal to move past the G5 case. That seems a lot more like the innovative Apple I remember.
