NPD data for first quarter shows Apple’s retail market share is 14% but two third of the computers sold are Macs for PCs costing $1,000 or more. "In notebooks they're growing two times the market," said Stephen Baker, NPD's vice president of industry analysis. “Windows notebooks had "zero percent" growth year over year.” On desktop side Apple had 45% growth, where as the Windows desktop market showed a decline of 25%. Apple market share for desktop and laptops above $1,000 is 70% and 64% respectively. Bring their total market share to 66 percent for PCs selling above $1,000 price point. Apple has just one computer below $1,000 price range the Mac Mini. This shows that Apple rules the market where profits margins are higher. The other companies like Dell, HP and Lenovo are making most of their sales in low-end market where Profit margins are very low. Stephen said in his remarks "iMacs are growing and the Windows desktop ain't. No matter how you look at it, Apple is outperforming Windows."
