Apple’s MacBook Share Collapsed Due to Major Sales Decline
Apple was the company experiencing the biggest decline in terms of laptop sales in the third quarter of the year, according to new data shared by TrendForce.
The Cupertino-based tech giant dropped no less than 24.3 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Apple accounts for only 7.9 percent of the sales in the laptop business, according to the cited source, down from 10.4 percent in Q3 2017.
HP continues to be number one with 25.3% share, followed by Lenovo and Dell with 19.8% and 16.8%, respectively. Thanks to a slower decline, Asus managed to overtake Apple and become the fourth largest notebook brand worldwide with 8.4% share.
