There’s an interesting but somewhat misguided article over on the switch to a mac site. They state that the market share for macs has experienced a massive increase over the last three years, representing over 6 percent of the market today. Unfortunately they fail to take into consideration the fact that the global market has expanded as well, and Macs have failed to keep pace. Granted though, Apple is selling more computers, albeit to a smaller and smaller percentage of the market. If your long on APPL, your probably in pretty good shape.
This post demonstrated that Apple’s market share is on a dramatic upswing with growth of greater than 23.5 percent each month over the past year. Apple will continue to experience market share gains for the remainder of 2006 and beyond. The future is bright for the Apple’s Macintosh and the OS X operating system. Apple has just embarked on a multi-year expansion that will see the company continue to grab market share.
