|PC Data's March Hardware Hits List is out. According to the Hits List, Apple did well in the month of March scoring the number 5 spot in the Portables category and the #4 spot in the desktop category.
The number 5 portable went to the Powerbook G3/233 32/2.0 512K 14.1XGA at an average price at $1,913.24. It was the highest priced of the Top 5 portables and the slowest in terms of straight MHz power. This marks the first time in a while that Apple has scored a top 5 portable.
The number 4 desktop was an iMac G3/233 32/4.0 24X 56K NIC DT w/15" Monitor, that would be a Rev B unit. The average selling price of this model was $913.06. The candy colored 266 MHz models were out at that time but do seem to have had a single color make the top 5. PC Data and the other market analysts consider each color to be a separate model and are thus counted separately. We are awaiting word back from PC Data on how the iMac colors stacked up as an aggregate total.
The Mac Observer Spin: It would seem that March was another great month for Apple as far as marketshare goes. Of course, the results for the quarter have already been released, but rankings had not at the time of Apple's press conference.
It is very likely that when all iMacs are grouped together that the little computer would easily have taken the number one spot. We will let you know as soon as we find out.
