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

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.”
