Apple has 14% of U.S. notebook market

Posted on Tuesday, June 26 2007 @ 03:01:18 CEST by

Research firm NPD reports Apple has hit 14 percent of the notebook market in the U.S. last month.
Coincidentally, that's also a 14 per cent rise over the previous month. This means that more people like Apple than did before, and will no doubt come as some consolation to Jobs' mob for the fact that they're still in fourth place in the US notebook market, behind HP, Gateway and Toshiba, none of whom are known for well-designed products in quite the same way that Apple is.

However, given the year-on-year growth of the fruity firm's notebooks, the day might not be long in the coming that Apple hits three, two or even one. That 14 per cent for May is up 65 per cent over the same time last year, and another 65 per cent growth would put it at almost 20 per cent.

Desktop sales didn't budge month on month, staying at 10 per cent. With notebooks now doing everything that 90per cent of consumers want at 90 per cent of desktop speed, most consumers are valuing portability over the extra 10 per cent.
