Canalys: Apple Leads PC Vendors in Q4
Canalys, the market research firm that counts tablet shipments alongside desktops and laptops when sizing the PC market, reported today that Apple became the leading PC vendor in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Using the figures Apple released with its quarterly earnings last week, Canalys noted that Apple shipped 15 million iPads and 5 million Macs, for 17 percent of the total 120 million total PCs that shipped in the quarter.
HP, Lenovo, Dell and Acer, in that order, round out the top five PC vendors worldwide, according to Canalys' count.
