Posted by reverseengineer in News, Statistics.

Newly released data from NPD Group, a major global market research company, shows that Apple notebooks accounted for nearly 10% of notebook retail sales for the month of March in the United States, with MacBooks and MacBook Pros combined.

The list omits direct sellers (like Dell, which doesn’t do retail). Apple Insider reports that the NPD Group list puts Apple’s retail sales topped at 9.9%, while Compaq hit 8.5% and Gateway 13%. Top of the chart is Toshiba at 26.2%, then HP at 23.9% This is actually a bit down from earlier in the year, when Apple did 10.1%.

In desktop retail sales, Apple broke into the top five for the first time this year, hitting 7.7%. Top dog here was HP with 35%, followed by a tight trio composed of Compaq, Gateway and eMachines, at 16.7%, 16.6% and 16.4% respectively, then Apple.
