Apple continues to take share of the personal computer market. In the third quarter, Apple's Mac computers accounted for 6.3% of all PCs sold, up from 5.7% a year earlier, according to estimates from IDC analysts.

This growth means that Apple pulled further ahead of its competitors as it increased its lead as the No. 3 player in the market, after Dell #1 and Hewlett-Packard # 2.

Apple's software is on the rise, too.

Quote Windows machines still dominate the PC market, but Apple, which for years commanded just 2 to 3 percent of the U.S. market, has now grown to command an 8 percent chunk, according to market researcher Gartner Inc.

I watched a story on the nightly TV news last week that talked about Apple not being able to staff fast enough to keep up with sales.
 
I guess it is having a negative impact on their tech support capabilities.
