Mac laptops: 17.6% market share and rising

Apple is kicking tail.


MacWorld is reporting that Apple now has 17.6% of the laptop market, with an overall market share of 5.9% and a solid third place in overall computer sales.

That's 2.2% over the same period in 2006. Money and market share does appear to grow on trees. Apple trees. (Bad pun...I know.)

No wonder Mr. Mac is happy.
