Apple Mac sales in the enterprise during Apple's last fiscal quarter grew a whopping 66 percent, significantly outpacing the rest of the PC market, which grew just 4.5 percent in the enterprise. The data from Apple's previous fiscal quarter was highlighted on Friday by analyst Charlie Wolf with Needham & Company. He said though he originally viewed success in the enterprise as a "one-quarter blip," it now appears to be a "durable platform" for Apple.

The reason for Mac surge is quite obvious. The whole iPad/iPhone development toolchain requires a Mac. Apple may think that the iPad creates a halo effect somehow, and it may be true: as long as the development market for iPhone & friends grows.
