At a time when the world is seeing a challenging phase ahead for wintel with IBM PC’s which just completed its 25TH anniversary last week, Apple continues to chug along. The numbers say it all: Some reports suggest 17 million visits to Apple Stores. Of the 1.33 million Macs sold in the previous quarter, 50% were first time Mac buyers. US$500 million of third party software was sold through Apple stores. The growth rate for Macs was reported as faster than that of the PC market, and Apple's notebook market share had doubled (from 6% to 12%).. A good coverage of the event is available here.
