Windows vs. Apple is nearly the oldest battle in computer fan boy history. Right- click sheeple against computers that only barely work is a fire war for the ages. However, in the annals of the competition, it’s consistently been recognised that Windows will probably be sole on more apparatus. Quality versus quantity is a determining characteristic of the discrepancy.
But starting in 2017, it looks as Apple steals among Windows’s many important numbers like things might change.
According to experts at Gartner, sales of Apple apparatus (that’s iOS and Mac os, maybe not merely MacBooks) may eclipse Windows sales for the first time this year.
Gartner is predicting Apple to sell MacOS apparatus and 268 thousand iOS in 2013, an increase of 8% on 20-16 amounts. That’s a big jump, but if you take into account that Apple only introduced the long-awaited MacBook Pro upgrade, and is set to produce an iPhone update that is big this season, that’s not unrealistic.
Windows, however, is forecast to carry on its slow death to obscurity. I’m willing to think the raft of good new notebooks announced at CES may go some way to stopping the bleeding, but nonetheless, it still probably won’t be a bumper year for Ms.
Something that seems to be left from the statement is the damage that Chromebooks may inflict. They’ve from being a market curiosity to eclipsing MacBook revenue eliminated, and with a few able machines around the $500 price-point, I really could see Apple Macintosh and Windows equally struggling with an influx of Google this year.
