OS X Lion boosts Mac sales

US sales of Apple Macs up following Lion update

Numbers put Apple in line for impressive quarterly Mac sales.

Sales of Macs surged by 26 per cent in July, compared to the same month last year. The stats, revealed by data types NPD, suggest that OS X Lion, released on 20 July, was a key factor in the growth of Apple’s top-end machines.

On top of that analyst Gene Munster reckons the release of the new Mac Mini and MacBook Air will have helped Apple boost sales significantly. Munster claims the Cupertino company is in line to hit 4.5 million Mac sales in the current quarter. That compares to 3.95 million in the quarter from April to June.

The news comes as rumours of a whole new range of Mac computers take the web by storm. With the iPad and iPhone doing so well, it seems Apple is desperate to cash in with a new product and get more people using Macs.
