Mac sales surge, according to report

Analyst reckons Apple computer sales up almost a quarter

Gartner Research says Apple almost in third spot when it comes to US PC sales.

Mac sales are surging across the pond according to analyst types Gartner Research. In a spanking new report, it says that Apple’s machines have powered ahead, with sales up 24 per cent in the second quarter of 2010.

That’s a vast leap and one which puts it just a few thousand behind Acer in the sales charts. HP and Dell take first and second respectively. At least Steve Jobs has something to cheer about today.
