There have been many reports recently that consumers are shifting away from conventional computers such as desktops and laptops towards tablets. The market is said to be in a steady decline. However, according to a new Digitimes report, Apple may end of moving four million MacBook units in this particular quarter. What’s baffling about this report is that in the same quarter last year, Apple managed to move four million units of all Macs, not just the MacBook models.
If this does end up happening, it would mark a significant growth as compared to Q3, 2013 as well as last year’s Q4. The report says that Apple’s Back to School program and its latest Haswell powered MacBook Air models are going to be the biggest drivers of sales growth. Apple recently revealed its Q3, 2013 fiscal results, it said that 3.8 million units of all Mac products were moved in the previous quarter. It is possible that the upcoming new MacBook Pro lineup, which too will be updated with Haswell processors, will cause a spike in sales figures. However Apple is yet to confirm when these new models are coming.
