Gartner 2008q4 Data
I suppose that any health left in AAPL today is due to the release of the Gartner 2008q4 data. Apple is one of the few companies that seem to have shown some health in the US this last quarter, in spite of the naysayers (Hubbery should spend a night with a camel)
Acer steamed ahead, with a 50% YoY increase, Apple had an 8% YoY increase compared to a -10.1% growth for sales in the US.
I have added a chart from the last few years, comparing NetApplications data with Gartner data. Note that the 2008q4 data point for Gartner is still an estimate until Wednesday night.[ Edited: 15 January 2009 03:34 PM by awcabot ]
