I wonder what Apple’s percentage of market for sub-$1000 computers might be?

“Also, I wonder what Apple’s share of the sub-$1000 computer market is. I’m guessing it’s less than one percent. In a recession. When everyone is avoiding spending money, so they’re buying sub-$1000 computers. My guess is that as much as we all want this to mean that Apple is finally rising to destroy PCs everywhere, all it really means is that there are far more crappy sub-$1000 non-Mac computers being sold than normal, so that the decrease in normal PC sales in the above $1000 price range is being mistaken as a huge triumph by Apple surging forward to success. I mean 91% of what? What were the total dollar sales during June? I need more data. There’s every chance that the 91% of June above $1000 market is actually less in raw profits than the 66% it was in Q1 2008. That would seem probable given Blodget’s report that the Mac market is still shrinking.”

But CK! Asking questions like that is heresy. Didn’t you get the memo?
