Oz falls hard for the Mac

Australia is the world's fastest-growing Mac population.

In the US, Mac sales are growing three times as fast as PC sales. The Australians, however, are putting us to shame. In the land "Down Under" made famous by Men at Work, Olivia Newton John, and Crocodile Dundee, Mac sales are growing at six times the industry average.

With Mac sales growing 52 percent in Australia in Q2 2008, Australia is officially the world's fastest-growing Mac population.

Oy, mate! Throw a little of that Mac on the barby!
