Smugness Increases

Man, check out the list of Amazon’s top-selling computers.

This list gets updated hourly, so I’ll just tell you what I saw: 8 of the 10 top-selling computers are Macs, and 12 of the top 25. I really wouldn’t think the PowerPC-based computers would be selling all that well, but they’re up there, too. In fact, PowerPC-based Macintoshes alone occupy 4 of the top 10 slots.

I’m not sure how many people buy their computers from Amazon, but I imagine it’s quite a few, seeing as they’re usually very competetive, owing to sales taxes and generally scurrilous, violent business practices aux Teamsters. I’m thinking by the end of the year, the whole market-share thing might start becoming interesting again.

Interesting numbers. I've never held much by retail sales of computers, but that's probably because I've built every machine I've owned since my first 486 DX33. It's not even all that cost effective anymore, but I can't help myself :).

I suspect Apple is finally successfully dealing with the public impression that there is limited software, etc for Mac's. Nothing makes me happier than having more high-powered players in the fight, so go, Apple, go!
