Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

You sure did pull that number out of your ass. 45% of Apple's sales come from Europe and Japan, mainly Europe.

And what is the ratio of non-Apple PC's and the 45% non-US Apples sold overseas?

It is? Check this (another) one picked out from the same southern part of me: what is the (roughly) percentage of the Apple computers sold in the world? Like 1 in 50? Less? I bet is less but for the sake of argument let's suppose is 1 in 50. You say 45% is sold in Japan&Europe and that Europe gets the bigger cut,say 60%,no, I give you 80%. That will give (very roughly) 1 Apple computer out of 150 other ones. Again,irrelevant to the computer user population in Europe. But as I said, I'm ready to bet the ratio is even lower. And no, I'm not at all biased against Apple. I use Apple machines since 1997. Hell, even today I still have 3.
