Apple

The latest numbers from market research firm IDC reveal that Mac sales experienced a slight year-over-year decline in the second quarter, dropping to 4.4 million from 4.8 million during the year-ago period.

Given the past 5-7 years, it's very unusual to see Apple's PC sales doing far worse than the overall PC market.

Then again, considering how Appple has been neglecting OS X for years now and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, as well as the complete neglect all across the Apple PC product lineup - this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

If Apple doesn't care about its PC business, why should anyone else?

Lack of games is one of the main reason, not everyone is a software developer and games are still a driving force of PC sales. Apple must get its OpenGL performance up to Windows levels. Create a new bigger mac mini that supports upgradable GPU (since macpro is to expensive for most people) and support certain GPU chips. Maybe launch and improved Xcode for game developers for both windows and mac to allow developers to create multiplataform games and apps.
