Mac shipments in US up 30% from last year


There's a movement afoot, and it arrives in nice white boxes. Gartner Research is reporting that preliminary data on Apple's 2007 first quarter shows a 30% year-over-year increase in computer shipments. Interestingly, the last quarter of 2006 showed the same increase. With the most recent data, Apple's estimated US market share rises a full point to 5%.

This growth in sales (against industry-wide unit growth of 2.6%) is the best indication of the escape-velocity pace of the Mac market's expansion. Woo hoo!
