Apple’s U.S. Mac Sales Up 20% in Current Quarter

Written on September 13, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

The Apple company is seeing outstanding sales rates this quarter with its U.S Mac sales up to 22 percent.

New NPD Group figures disclosed that Mac sales in US have increased to 22% in July and August, Piper Jaffray analyst – Gene Munster – reported.

Gene Munster pointed out that this achievement was attained when the company introduces the OS X Lion operating system last July, and updates the MacBook Air and Mac Mini models. And since the sales rush would be seeing a decrease in September, he speculated that Apple might be able to sell 4.4 million to 4.6 million Mac units before the current quarter ends.

“We believe that Mac sales in the month of August benefited from new Mac products,” Gene Munster affirmed in a research note. “On July 20th Apple released OS X Lion, a $29 download also included in all Mac sales on or after 7/20. Since the Lion release timing was known, Apple likely benefited from pent-up demand for Macs, which also explains soft NPD data in the month of June (+7% y/y). The company also released updated versions of the MacBook Air and the Mac mini on 7/20, which provided a tailwind for Mac sales in the month of Aug.”

Apple declared that there's an equilibrium on supply and demand in the iPad market, as its sales are beating out the new PCs' sales.

Apple declared on their third quarter result call that almost all of the region – where they ship their iPad – are finally achieving a “balance” between the supply and demand in the market. The company sold as many tablets as it could be throughout the quarter, due to the shrinking of US shipping times to one to three days.

Apple currently has almost three weeks of iPad shipping schedule in their inventory. The company emphasized that the third quarter iPad sales were so high, it would beat out sales of new PCs. The said company also added that enterprise adoption has taken off in defiance of usual conservatism with new products. That said, 86% of the Fortune 500 and 47% of the Global 500 are occupied to be testing or deploying iPads. Even several major clients are rolling out custom apps including GE, Boston Scientific, Cedar Sinai Hospital, Standard Charter and Salesforce. Alaska Airlines and American Airlines also use iPads in cockpits. This performance has carried out to the educational realm as well, where Apple says it sold more iPad to K-12 schools than Macs in just a period of five quarters.

Apple mentioned that the production of iPad is still on-going. The production increased by 4.5 million units in the third quarter of this year alone, and a large boost is predicted to come in the near future.
