Apple By most counts, they're a hit. But they were intended to woo new users to the fold, yet Mac market share has only budged -- lower, says BusinessWeek.

Market share - apple can sell more computers than PC makers
by CaptainN on Wed 7th Apr 2004 14:58 UTC

It should be pointed out that Apple can sell more computers than their PC competition, and still loose market share (or at least installed base).

For every new PC that is purchased a substantial amount of the computers they are replacing are "handed down" to family members or freinds who don't have money to burn on computers or who simply do not see the value in spending money on a device that they'd rather not deal with.

That is at least a portion of Apple's competition (and Dell's for that matter).
