Apple continues to show tremendous growth in the enterprise and government markets, as Mac sales spiked sharply over the last three months.

AppleInsider cites a report from Charlie Wolf of Needham & Company this week that Apple saw a 200.8% year-over-year growth in government sales for the month of July. That's a huge number, and significantly higher than the 12.1% of growth that PC sales showed over the same period.

Likewise, sales grew 49.8% in the business market during the same time period. Large companies out-purchased small businesses, picking up 98.3 more Macs than they did in the previous year.

Wolf hesitates to call the figures a pattern, saying "Whether the June blip was a one-quarter phenomenon or something more enduring should be revealed in future quarters."

As for education, traditionally a stronghold for Apple, sales grew 14.7% during the same period. Recent reports show that college and university students in the US are buying MacBooks in huge numbers.
