Yes, but as documented elsewhere in this thread, the report showing Apple as #1 is in fact evidence of incorrect definition or incorrect methodology. By your own statement, you believe IPads are not PC's, thus proving my point that the report is flawed, and your statement evidences that you agree that it is flawed.

Others have clearly documented how Nintendo has sold far more units than Apple, even counting IPhone's as computers.

The media obsession with Apple can only be explained as fanbois or those who hold Apple stock and hope the fluff nets them a profit.
