Apple UK share grows

Apple last quarter with an overall growth rate of 25 percent in the UK (10 per cent growth in its desktop sales and a 50 per cent growth in notebook sales), according Macworld UK: "Europe's PC market grew 19.7 per cent year-on-year during 2003's final quarter with business driven by ever-increasing notebook demand and the emergence of the long-awaited corporate refresh cycle that has been absent for four years, analysts firm IDC revealed. Apple exceeded the curve, shipping over 51,000 Macs in the last three months of 2003 in the UK; a 25 per cent growth in sales year-on-year, IDC told Macworld."

    Real World Percentage?

    It's great to see Macs flying off to the UK in such numbers!

    What's the Mac UK market share overall?

    ?iTunes

    But still we can't use the iTunes store, and with the dollar at an all time low, those prices look good.

    we need d*** Cheney

    Too Bad Apple never hired d*** Cheney as a special advisor or something.. The US would've been able to declare Microsoft as a threat to our security and we could've taken them out, making way for Cheney's stock (in Apple) to really go up..

    Not 25% share growth...

    25% growth. This is quite a bit different than 25% market share growth. If the market grew at 20%, then they didn't gain much ground.

    Not just England...

    "Now if we can make those English people multiply their population to 500%... "

    The UK is not just England. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are also parts of the UK. Its amazing how many people (mainly Americans) think think that UK = England.
