IDC: Record Mac sales?

Technology analyst IDC’s latest report on the PC industry projects that Apple sold 5.75 million Macs in the fourth calendar quarter of 2014. If accurate, that would be another record—following the previous quarter’s record 5.5 million in Mac sales.

Mac Sales projection

As IDC reports:

Apple kept the number 5 position on a worldwide basis, maintaining its lead over ASUS. The company’s steady growth, along with recent price cuts and improved demand in mature markets, has helped it to consistently outgrow the market.

Apple’s fiscal 2014 also saw the most Macs sold in a fiscal year in Apple history.
