Macs are Top Selling "Performance" PCs at Retail


Posted May 19, 2008 - By bleahy

An surprising statistic crossed our paths by way of The Unofficial Apple Weblog today.

During the first quarter of 2008, Macs were the highest selling brand of computer for performance, which means a computer priced above $1000 at 66%. This includes laptops over that price-point.

Now, this statistic is limited to in-store sales, which includes Apple Stores along with big-box chains like Best Buy, Fry's, and Circuit City.

As for desktops sold in-store, Apple has a 70% market share.

While in-store sales are a small fraction of total computer sales, with most being ordered online, it represents some pretty impressive growth for Apple.

This is what happens when you make fancy stores that sell computers over $1000. You end up selling the more of these than anyone else in store.

Disclosure: I <3 Macs.
