The analysts we polled in advance of Monday's fiscal fourth quarter earning report don't expect much from the Mac this time around. Of the 43 we've heard from so far -- 22 professionals and 21 amateurs -- nobody except maybe FBN's Shelby Seyrafi thinks Mac sales actually grew year-over-year last quarter, and I have to believe he rounded up to get to 5 million.
The average unit sales estimate among all analysts is 42.6 million. That's a 13% drop from last year. The pro analysts are estimated an average of 4.35 million and the amateurs are estimating 4.17 million.
