After having exceeded the growth rate of the PC industry for five-and-a-half years (22 consecutive quarters), Apple’s Mac platform now commands a 5.2 percent share of the worldwide PC market, according to an analysis by Needham & Co.. This is the first time in fifteen years that the Mac’s share has exceeded 5 percent, as AppleInsider points out. Apple reported record Mac sales of 4.89 million units during the recently ended September quarter, which was a growth of 24.6 percent from the year-ago quarter and much higher than the PC industry’s overall growth of 5.3 percent. Apple’s Mac market share was at 4.4 percent at the end of the September quarter in 2010.
