We're Not Used To News About Apple's Slow PC Sales
Two market research firms — Gartner and IDC — claim Apple's computer sales have slowed for the first time in two years.By Mikah Sargent | October 9, 2015
Apple's computer sales have slowed for the first time in two years. That's according to two research firms that claim to have accurate sales estimates.
The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, says the research firms — Gartner and IDC — disagree on what exactly the slowdown looks like. Gartner claims Apple had a mere 1.5 percent growth, while IDC says sales shrank by 3.4 percent. (Video via Apple)
We'd argue news of slowed computer sales isn't all that interesting in and of itself. After all, IDC recently reported a nearly 12-percent decline in overall sales of computers, which are being swiftly outpaced by sales of smartphones and tablets. (Video via Toshiba)
