Posted by · 7727 views · Translate

Fortune has compiled an average estimate for the number of Macs sold last quarter from professional and amateur analysts. At 12% the Mac is now Apple's third biggest money maker, after the iPhone at 52% and iPad at 20%.

Estimates indicate that after four quarters with year-over-year declines the Mac may have finally see some year-over-year growth.

Although a third of the 33 analysts we've heard from so far -- 13 amateurs and 20 Wall Street professionals -- think Apple will report another decline in unit sales next week, two thirds believe sales actually rose year over year. The average analyst's estimate is just over 4 million Macs, a 2.8% increase over the same quarter last year. The pros (at 4.1 million) are slightly -- but only slightly -- more bullish than the amateurs (4 million) this time around.

Apple has announced that it will release Q2 FY14 earnings on April 23, 2014.

I got a MacBook Air early this year and I could not be happier. It's a well built machine, and it does everything I need - better than a PC ever would. Facts!

And how many are being return and refurbish, they forgot to mention 4 Millions had been return and then refurbished and sold as new again, typical of Apple. Mac is a caM crap, I once owned one and threw it off my 30th floor balcony, and never looked back. Lolwut-ratGT-anthony are GayBoys in need of a Windows ButtHurt.

And who here gives a shit? You forgot to mention 4 million were bought back and kept forever after realizing what virus' were dealt with on PC, typical die hard windows especially after all the improving until 8 just randomly colored tiles with random gestures dill gates thought. You're a disgrace to technology like your sorry ass is to macs. PC is cp- crap piss. I curse the day pc's were bought, what was the purpose of them after the first computer Macintosh, and today Mac Pro, what else comes close to it, certainly not a wannabe like you. You never give a shit about macs like us, you'd rather give blowjobs to your dill gates precious careless souless os ruining lumpia creating ass, what's next, you're begging for balmer to help, why else did he quit. You are as much of a lazy unworthy douch like him just like balmer just like kamatis, Tony, and wow. FYI as much as macs are rock solid it proves how weak you are to destroy one well made game changer.

And you forgot to check twice where you believe such daydreaming bull shit? Why else is windows 8 terrible? What about surfish? What game is it changing, oh yeah, how you went from caring to bragging like the uneducated wench you are, back to the kitchen with your idea. You need to cook like Tim if you want to be educated with reality.
