Mac sales are up. PC sales are down. And in that shrinking market, Apple takes the lion’s share of the profits. Tim Cook reported Tuesday that Mac sales grew almost 18% year over year in the June quarter while the rest of the PC market shrank by nearly 2%.
And the Mac is the most profitable PC on the market. By far. “Indeed,” writes Asymco‘s Horace Dediu, “it’s more profitable than all the other vendors put together.”
