I've been seeing a lot of people using Macs at the university I work at lately and that made me wonder whether this is a more widespread phenomenon. It seems that it is. According to an article at Macworld, Apple is now ranked second in the UK education market, well behind leader Research Machines but ahead of Dell and HP.
And it gets better for Apple. The company's last quarter put it in the No. 1 position in the UK, with nearly 12 percent of the market. MacBooks in particular are hot, though that's not really news if you've walked into a coffee shop in London in the last six months.
