Apple MacBook Sales Skyrocket

In 2009, Apple shipped seven million MacBooks. Now, one of its suppliers, Quanta Computer, has said that Apple is ordering one million MacBooks per month, up from 300,000 to 400,000 per month one year ago. And even though January is a traditionally slow time for the computer industry, Apple is expected to order another one million computers this month. Apple is expected to introduce new MacBook Pros soon, equipped with Intel’s new Core i processors.

Apple had an excellent year in 2009, selling as many as three million Macs during the holiday season (the exact numbers are not yet known). In October 2009, the MacBook Pro was top-selling notebook in the United States.

An analyst has predicted that Apple’s sales will grow twenty-six percent in 2010, greater than the expected growth for the PC market: sixteen percent. All in all, 2010 is shaping up to be a great year for Apple.
