+ - Apple dominates retail computer sales

Submitted by BlueStraggler
BlueStraggler (765543) writes "Everybody knows that Apple is a bit player in the computer market. Except, it seems, for people who have been buying computers this past holiday season. Amazon's top sellers list is dominated by Apple, who claims the top 3 spots, and 10 of the top 25. The #1 computer sold by Amazon? The 13" MacBook 2Ghz Core 2 Duo. And #2 is the same computer again, in its previous rev (Core Duo), which implies that the MacBook holds top position by a serious margin. If holiday buying shows what people really want, rather than what they must put up with, what will happen to Apple's ranking once we go back to normal purchasing patterns?"
