Mac sales up 35%

A report published on AppleInsider with data from NPD and Piper Jaffray shows Mac sales are up 35% year-over-year. Responding to initial analysts fears that the release of the iPad would hurt Mac sales, the report shows minimal cannibalization of the Mac product line from the iPad:

“We believe in the long run Mac cannibalization will exist, but will be minimal, Apple has successfully limited the iPad functionality to primarily content consumption vs. content creation on a Mac. And relative to the iPod, the physical size of an iPad provides a meaningfully different value proposition (portability vs. screen size).”

This is important to note because there has been widespread worry that the growth of the iPhone and iPad would ultimately lead to the death of the Mac, which Steve Jobs himself has publicly refuted. You can read more of the report on AppleInsider.

    people buy iphone, then then buy mac

    people buy ipad, then they buy mac

    and of course, anyone that has a mac, already owns an iphone and an ipad

    apple has a good thing going, lots of cross selling between products

    I agree with @tres bien, but I have something to add – I have Mac, but I don’t have an iPhone. BUT I am going to buy one. So it is two-way situation. :)
