Apple UK: surge in desktop, slowing notebooks sales

updated 08:00 am EDT, Wed May 11, 2005

Macs in UK jump 27 percent

Apple has seen its overall Mac shipments in the UK year-over-year--marginally expanding Apple's marketshare in the country to 2.2 percent, according to IDC. Macworld UK reports that the Mac mini is driving Apple's marketshare, but that Apple's notebook sales are slowing because of stiffer competition from Windows alternatives: "In recent years, Apple's success in the European market has been driven by a higher than industry average acceleration in notebook sales. Apple's success in this area is slowing down... Figures released by IDC in August 2004 showed that year-on-year Apple's UK notebook shipments grew 41.3 per cent. Gibbs said: 'Notebook sales have only grown by 9.6 per cent year-on-year, much slower than the notebook market as a whole."
