Mac sales up by 22 per cent

Mac sales rise, but iPod sales continue their inexorable decline.

Apple isn’t set to release its official figures for the current quarter for a few weeks yet. But analyst Gene Munster has handed over official data compiled in the US by NPD, which suggests Mac sales have jumped by a massive 22 per cent year-on-year in recent months.

That’s down to the release of the ace new MacBook Air, updated Mac Mini and, of course, OS X Lion. The jump is compared to the same time period last year, with Munster predicting that sales will slow in September, with a quarter-on-quarter rise of 16 per cent.

That still represents a huge win for Apple, which has ditched its old-school MacBook and refreshed its entire Mac range in 2011.

However, there is a note of caution for Cupertino. Munster says iPod sales have fallen drastically, with a 16 per cent drop in July and August. It seems the ultimate PMP is on an inexorable decline.
