Apple Increase Its Shipment Volumes Amidst Drops by Competitors
Reports by both IDC and Garner show that Apple stood up against the market trend of drops in computer shipments.
Apple competitors including HP, Dell, Acer, Toshiba and Samsung all recorded a drop in their shipment volumes in United States during the last quarter of the year 2011.
On the other hand, Apple was able to record an impressive 18% increase in shipment volumes compared to the same period in the previous year.
However, this does not mean that Apple shipped more Mac computers than all the other manufacturers. In fact Del and HP were able to ship twice the number of computers Apple shipped within United States but apparently it was a drop fro what they recorded in 2010.
