Apple Shipments: United States Apple Mac Shipments May Have Grown Over Holidays

Page 1 of 2

Apple Shipments: Last week, IDC released research data stating that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Mac shipments were down 0.2 percent year over year during the holiday quarter.

According to AppleInsider, this information may not be accurate. Instead, they have reported the following:

“Gartner on Monday contradicted its rival IDC and claimed that domestic Mac shipments actually grew for Apple by 5 percent year over year in the holiday quarter.”

It is amazing that IDC and Gartner are so far apart in terms of Mac shipments during the holiday quarter.

Here is a breakdown of the Gartner findings, as reported by AppleInsider:

“Apple’s U.S.-based shipments were up 5.4 percent while the overall PC market slid 2.1 percent. Apple is believed to have shipped more than 2.1 million Macs in the quarter, up from 2 million in the same period in 2011.”

“Apple’s share of U.S. PC shipments also grew from 11.4 percent in the 2011 holiday shopping season to 12.3 percent in the same period in 2012.”

While it can be interesting to look at the numbers from both companies, everybody will soon learn the truth.

Next week, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is expected to reveal earnings for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2013. This will include information on Mac sales for the holiday quarter.

Do Gartner and IDC agree on anything? While it may appear that the answer is no, AppleInsider discusses the one area in which both companies see eye to eye:
