Gartner: Apple Sixth-Largest PC Seller

in General Discussion edited January 2014

Apple was the sixth-largest desktop PC vendor worldwide in 2007, shipping just over 3 million computers, research firm Gartner said Friday. The numbers were unexpected, one analyst said.

?We were pretty surprised by the 2007 figures,? Alfonso Velso told Cult of Mac. The 2007 sales figures were 26 percent higher than 2005 when Gartner had estimated Apple shipped 2.5 million desktop computers.Velso said the sales jump is due to Apple products, as well as some missteps by rivals.

?They are riding a crest of good products and design,? the analyst said.
