Everything flows, everything changes, but Apple is still the market leader in computers and tablets. Publishes such data Canalys. According to the report of the research, in the last quarter of 2013, the manufacturer has put 30.9 million Mac and iPad.
This is guaranteed by the U.S. vendor 19.5 percent share and the highest number of deliveries. Behind Apple go Lenovo, Samsung and HP. Dell closes the top five.
It is worth noting that, according to Canalys, a significant advantage over competitors Apple achieved through tablets, not PCs. Thus, the share of total iPad 30 million – 84.3% (26 million gadgets). While the total share of MacBook, iMac, Mac Pro and Mac Mini I want to cry or be sad – selling them reduced from year to year.
The same applies to devices from other manufacturers. 48.3% of the global PC market by the end of the 2013th take tablets. At the same time last year, sales of desktops and laptops fell by 6.9 percentage points, while the Tablet PC sales increased by 65.2%.
Probably for this reason (apparent displacement of one category of goods other) Canalys – a unique team of analysts, classifies the device to a PC. Gartner, IDC and Strategy Analytics, for example, consider only the PC and tablets separately.
