Mac shipments have more than quadrupled over the past decade but last quarter saw their biggest drop in a decade.

In the chart below SplatF contrasts Apple's Mac shipments with the new Apple computer, the iPad.

During the December quarter, Mac shipments dropped a conspicuous 22% from the year before, their biggest decline in at least 10 years. The weaker holiday quarter also caused Apple’s full-year Mac shipments to drop in 2012, while iPad and iPhone sales grew: Apple shipped 43 million more iPhones and 25 million more iPads in 2012 than it did in 2011. But it shipped 778,000 fewer Macs.

Oh wonder: no sales because the new iMacs were not available... Not sure if this explains all of it, but i guess it accounts for a big part...

I would also believe that the recent decline in sales is because of the trash quality they are using now. Just like me, there are a lot of people having their mba's crashing more than twice a week. Its unusable, just to think I bought a Dell again after more than 5 years to continue working makes me doubt about getting another mac ever.

Having now an discussion over a MBP17" they released even in 2008. The dealers state to me that that one laptop had a severe hardware issue. They repaired it. "That's good" - do you think. But one year and some days later, guess what. Yep! That same problem. Total hardware failure was back from gone. Seems that that is normal… Apple Europe admit there is a problem but doesn't help me out. So button line, I invested in a very expensive laptop that didn't do the job it had to do.

Users' msg is pretty much clear.. They do not want apple to tell them how use their computer.. Apple, wake up and stop looting the users' freedom, otherwise you will be nowhere in OS market.

It's because the new iMac didn't make it out on time. The next quarter will correct.
