Before the new MacBook Pro models appeared on the offer, Apple’s sales in the notebook segment were lowered by the MacBook Air with the M1 processor, which did a pretty decent result.
Speaking of MacBooks specifically, the company sold 6.5 million laptops (no, they didn’t count iPads as notebooks here, unfortunately) in the third quarter of 2021 – and MacBook Air was responsible for increasing that number, according to Strategy Analytics.
The research company estimates place Apple as the fourth-largest seller of laptops in the world, with a 10% market share. Lenovo ranks first with 15.3 million units sold in the third quarter and a 24% market share, while HP and Dell are just behind them in second and third places.
Apple’s recent financial results show that Mac sales revenue continues to grow.
Despite this, the company managed to generate revenues of USD 83.3 billion in the period from the end of June to the end of September 2021. This is an increase of 29% year on year. Including as much as USD 18.3 billion comes from services, over 9 billion from Mac computers.
I expect that after the premiere of the new MacBook Pro, this bar will go even higher.
