Apple sells more iPods, fewer Macs in March quarter

updated 04:55 pm EDT, Wed April 22, 2009

iPod sales up Macs down

Apple on Wednesday reported its financial information for the quarter ending in March, showing mixed results for product sales. Mac shipments were down three percent for the quarter, with sales of 2.22 million computers. Despite predictions that iPod sales would level off or even decline, the company sold over 11 million devices which marks a gain of three percent over last year's quarter.

The iPhone showed the best performance for the quarter, with sales of 3.79 million units. The shipments beat Wall Street estimates by almost a half million handsets. Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray earlier in the day adjusted his forecast to 3.7 million devices, following AT&T's disclosure of 1.6 million iPhone activations for the corresponding quarter.

Apple's disclosure represents its best-yet performance for a non-holiday quarter. Despite the economic situation, revenues were up 8.6 percent to $8.16 billion.

    'Less' for amount, 'fewer' for number. God save us.

    Less vs. Fewer

    I confess that I clicked on this article only to see if somebody else had already commented on the grammar mistake. One of my pet peeves...

    re: Fewer Macs

    I bet you the Mac sales drop must be attributed to the missing FireWire port on the new MacBooks. See, when you mess with a perfectly-working formula, it comes and bites you in the A$$.

    Re: Fewer macs

    I thought it was because everyone's waiting for the new iPhone to come out.

    And lest we forget, there several million potential Apple customers out there, just waiting for the Powerbook G5 to finally be released. Get your a** moving, Apple!
