PC & Mac sales up, Mac share at 8.1%…

Worldwide computer sales measured 68.5 million in the third quarter of 2007, a 14.4 percent growth over the same quarterarrow up last year, says the technology research firm Gartner. The group specifically notes that growth was fastest in the combined region of Asia and the Pacific, where it rose 23.4 percent, while Europe, the Middle East and Africa together rose 16.4 percent. The US market is said to have disappointed forecasters, gaining just 4.7 percent instead of 6.7; an unusual point in the data however is Apple, which is listed as having an 8.1 percent share of the US market, up from 6.2 a year prior. This conflicts with data recently published by IDC, which suggests movement from 5.7 to 6.3 percent, a much shallower boost in performance of 15.9 percent versus Gartner’s evaluated 37.2. {full article}
