According to research firm Gartner, Apple is doing better than anyone could have imagined. Thanks to the rusty launch of Windows Vista, Mac Sales have shot up almost 30% in the first quarter of 2007. Does this mean that Apple is finally swooping in and conquering 50% of the PC market? No, but it means Apple is not the same company it was 10, even 5 years ago.
This new boost in Mac sales — thanks to iPod sales — means Apple is now officially is at the top of the home PC probability matrix. We can only hope that Jobs & Co. continue to have increased sales with the launch of the iPhone and more crazy commercials that feature Justin Long bashing the PC.
