    Apple Gains Market Share

    Apple Gains Market Share

    Tim Bajarin

    "But, there is something else going on here that I am convinced bodes well for Apple and will be a problem for the PC vendors if they don�t figure out how to counter it. My son Ben does our research in the area of Gen X and Gen Y users and he was talking to kids at his alma mater recently and they told him that over half of the kids at this private college were Mac users."

    "I was talking to a very senior exec at a major PC company recently and he complained that all his teen age son wants is a Mac, even though he has access to PC�s up the wazoo."

    ..."it would not surprise me if Apple can get to as much as 10-12% of the total market and break into the top 3 PC vendors over the next five years as more and more Gen X and Gen Y users buy Mac�s and influence the purchases of their parents and grandparents and drive them to Apple products as well."
