There should be an image here!Honestly was taken back by this number. Apple apparently, is commanding 47.71 percent on the computer retail sales market share. Mind you I am not speaking of operating systems, I am talking about the computers themselves.

Clearly this is great news as previously Apple was enjoying a lesser 33.44 percent share only a year before. And this is certainly great news for Apple, but there is a dark side that I feel is not being addressed by Apple specifically…least not yet.

Apple needs for their Tablet to be a big hit. Because they are slipping in laptop sales from 38% down to 34%. Anyone with a clue realizes this is obviously due to the netbooks that Apple was so quick to dismiss. But the fact is that these numbers could again change if the Apple Tablet is half as great as folks are hoping it is.
