Watch Out, Other PCs! Apple Is Taking Over!

ipads help apple dominate the pc market

Apple loves you, iPad. Oh yes they do!

According to Goldman Sachs' Bill Shope, impressive iPad sales could make Apple "one of the largest vendors in the global personal computing market."

Here's more from Shope on Apple's progress in the PC market:

“Apple’s share of the PC market has been below 5 percent for most of the past 15 years, and even with the much-hyped 'iPod halo effect,' this level hasn’t changed in recent years. With the iPad, however, Apple is now offering a unique computing device that is priced for the mass market.

In fact, our Apple forecast assumes that the iPad segment will surpass Apple’s Mac business in revenues and profits by the end of fiscal 2011–the first full year of iPad shipments….If we include tablets in our PC unit forecast, then our estimates suggest Apple’s combined iPad and Mac market share would reach 12 percent in 2011.

Based on the current market share breakdown in the PC market, this could presumably make Apple one of the largest vendors in the combined PC and tablet market.

Exciting times for Apple! Sounds like competitors better bring their A-Game in 2011 but we don't think it will help too much.

Team Apple!!!!

    there's a lot of room for improvement in the pad market and if apple keeps playing like they own everything they will go down



  2. 2

    I think that apple will continue to rise in the market due to the future releases of the next generation iPad. This is the time to buy your stocks in apple people!

    About damn time… it's been a major pain in the ass feeling like a leper for the last 15 years whenever you say you use a Mac. Especially knowing how sucky Windows PC's are in comparison.



  4. 4

    the most exciting part is that i bought stock at $80.00



  5. 5

    PC world would probably do what they always do, wait to see what Apple does then copy it!



  6. 6

    Ew. Screw Apple and all the I products. Especially the iPad. Get a damn laptop.



  7. 7

    Apple products = overpriced, underfeatured fashion accessories. If you're so fucking brainwashed that you don't realise this truth, then you deserve to let Steve Jobs rape your ignorant hipster wannabe bunghole.

    Apple's only strength is their complete control of their products. It's also their greatest weakness, because as long as they keep that design philosophy, they'll never be anything other than niche.

    That's why windows dominates the pc market and android is set to overtake ios.
