Apple Mac, Windows PC killer

“It isn’t easy making a living in this country [U.S.A.] as a box seller, unless your name just happens to be Apple,” Rick Aristotle Munarriz reports for The Motley Fool.
“Gartner published its PC sales metrics for the fourth quarter last night. The industry tracker estimates that 17.9 million computers were shipped during the holiday period, a 5.9% decline from last year,” Munarriz reports. “The category includes traditional PCs, laptops, and mini notebooks, excluding the tablets and smartphones that are selling briskly these days.”

Munarriz reports, “If you want to make an ugly number even uglier, back out Apple. Take away the more than 300,000 computers it sold this past quarter relative to last year and this country’s non-Apple PC shipments fell by a staggering 8.6%.”
