updated 01:55 pm EST, Tue December 2, 2003

Apple ranks No. 34

The latest TWICE Top 100 CE Retailers ranking has behind other PC vendors such as Dell, Sony, and Gateway: "For Apple, a 471.6% sales surge born of a near doubling in store count (to 51 units) delivered the Macmeisters to 34th place on the TWICE rankings with $383 million in volume under their belt." Dell was in fourth place behind Circuit City, buoyed by some $5.3 billion in consumer product sales, representing a mighty 18.8% leap in volume over 2001, while Gateway broke into the Top 20 with $2.1 billion in sales, landing in 13th place amid a 30% drop in revenue.

    scary thought

    With Dell making 5 billion, imagine what Apple could be making if it made PCs? Apple would easily demolish Dell, too bad the masses haven't completely disassociated themselves from cheap crappy window boxes.

    Gateway not dying?

    CE Sales?

    Consumer Electronics sales?? What exactly does that mean? Are they only counting iPods for Apple?

    Gateway has been doing rather well selling low cost plasma TVs, but what Consumer Electronics is Dell selling?
