More about PC Sales

Just following on from my last entry.

According to this piece in The Register:

Apple was the only major computer maker to increase its shipments into the UK PC market during the final three months of 2011.
The article was quoting figures from Gartner that excluded iPad sales, despite that Apple showed a growth in shipments of 17.2% when comparing Q4 2010 to Q4 2011.

Comparatively HP dropped 27%, Dell dropped 32.2%, Acer lost 62.4% and Toshiba lost 5.4%.

The big question is if this is being driven by:

  1. Everyone wants a Mac because Windows is so yesterday.
  2. Everyone is waiting for Ultrabooks running Windows.
  3. Everyone has decided to skip Windows 7 and wait for Windows 8.
I do know that many training providers for the corporate markets are now offering Mac training on a regular basis so maybe there is a change happening in the market.
