Apple Europe sales grow

Apple's December quarter shipments in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) from the year-ago quarter--almost double that of the overall market, according to a Macworld UK report. Pent-up demand for the iMac G5 and strong seasonal demand, drove growth of the desktop sales in the region by 52 percent (year-over-year); however, Apple is still not among the top 5 PC vendors in the market: "Next year is going to be a very important year for Apple as the industry watches and waits to see how successful its Mac Mini will be. The release of the mini represents concrete steps from Apple to attempt to leverage from its now very strong brand name stemming from its iPod success, and apply it to the PC market." Last week, we reported that Apple's global PC sales grew by more than 25 percent in the December quarter.
