US Mac Shipments Surge by 30% Compared to Last Year

A recent surge in Apple’s market presence is evident, as Gartner Research highlights a significant uptick in Apple’s computer shipments for the first quarter of 2007.

The data suggests a 30% year-over-year increase in shipments, mirroring the growth rate from the final quarter of 2006.

This boost has propelled Apple’s estimated market share in the US by an additional percentage point, now sitting at 5%.

This notable rise in sales, which starkly contrasts with the industry’s overall growth rate of 2.6%, signals a robust acceleration in the Mac market’s expansion.
