Apple Is World’s Number 1 Mobile PC Maker, Thanks to iPad

Share This:


Thanks to the success of Apple’s iPad, the Mac-maker accounted for 17.2 percent of all mobile PC shipments worldwide during the fourth quarter of 2010, making it the overall segment leader. DipslaySearch reports Apple shipped over 10.2 million MacBooks and iPads combined during the period, giving it the edge over closest competitors HP by almost a million units.

Wow. That’s an impressive milestone for Apple – and well deserved as their laptops are just stellar devices.

Oh, and the iPad’s contribution to this milestone is a massive one – since Apple told us last month during their earning call that they sold around 7.3 million iPads during their last quarter. So 70% of their market-leading 10 million units are iPads.
