iMac Number 3 Computer For September!
[10:03 AM] The iMac was the number 3 selling computer model for the month of September, proving that the stunning numbers for August were no mere fluke. Apple's Bondi-Blue masterpiece came in behind two different HP models, and was the highest priced machine in the top 5 of PC Data's Hardware Tracking List for September, with an average selling price of US$1267. The same held true for last month when the iMac was also the highest priced box on the list.

The Mac Observer Spin: Since it became clear that Apple was turning the corner this summer, analysts have consistently said that sustainability was the next key in Apple's ongoing efforts. While a month and a half do not a turnaround make, combined with Apple's full year of profitability and overall numbers, this is likely to convince even more previously skeptical onlookers. October will also likely be a great month for Apple with further iMac rollouts around the world.

On Wednesday, MacInTouch first reported that Apple was planning a consumer loan plan that would allow many iMac buyers to get an iMac for less than a doll a day (US$29.95 per month) and yesterday The Detroit News also ran a more detailed version of the same story. This is very likely to bring out even more iMac buyers and we will likely see the iMac as the number two selling computer for November and December and possibly the number one selling computer for those months. It's almost getting boring reporting all this good news in the Mac world. Almost. :-)
