Back in the 90s, anyone who said that Apple would one day be among the top five personal computer manufacturers in the world would have been laughed out of a room. Now, it’s Apple’s turn to do the laughing.
The Cupertino-based company now controls 6.3 percent of the worldwide personal computer market, sitting behind Lenovo, HP, Dell and Acer, according to IDC. Apple reportedly shipped almost 4.6 million units this past quarter, compared to Lenovo’s 15.7 million units.
The No. 5 position was previously held by ASUS in the IDC global stats.
